Search continues one month after woman's disappearance
By Staff Writer 04/07/2013
A Grayson County family is spending the Fourth of July holiday wondering if a mother of four is dead or alive.
It's been one month to the day since the mysterious disappearance of Melvia Roarx.
On June 4, Roarx left her home, told her family she was going to the store to buy some soft drinks and hasn't been seen since.
The 30 days that their mom has been missing feel like decades to her kids, who said they just want to see her one more time.
"It's hard because she's gone and I want her to come home and I feel in my heart she's missing and I want her to come home but she ain't," said Roarx's 5-year-old daughter, Sandy.
Not only did Roarx never make it back home, the 28-year-old's car was found abandoned about 80 miles away in Bullitt County.
The longer the family waits, the more they're beginning to fear the worst.
"I think of my baby, (that she) might be laying out there hurt somewhere. Somebody knows something," said Roarx's mother, Linda Duke.
But police have chased down their leads, and so far, there has been no trace of Roarx.
"I'm perplexed at why no one's seen her. No one's heard her, no activity on her credit cards and such," said Detective Jeff Kelsey with the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.
Anyone with information should contact Grayson County Sheriff's Department at (270) 259-3024.
