10 Year Anniversary for Missing Atmore Woman

10 Year Anniversary for Missing Atmore Woman

Posted: Updated:
ATMORE, Ala. -

A press conference took place Monday morning in Atmore regarding the disappearance of Atmore woman, Melinda McGhee.

Sunday marked the 10 year anniversary of McGhee's disappearance.

McGhee worked the night shift at a nursing home in Bay Minette, and had made two phone calls from her home in Atmore the morning of her disappearance. The phone calls were the last time her family heard from her.

When investigators searched her home, they found blood inside that was later identified as her blood. That was the only sign of McGhee.

Since that time, Escambia County deputies and investigators have continued to work this case. At the press conference, they reminded the public that this is not a cold case. The case is still open, and they are continuing to work on it.

Investigators have pursued hundreds of leads, but there has been no other evidence pointing to what could have happened to her, or where she could be.

McGhee was married with two sons.

Sheriff Grover Smith reminded the public that the original reward the Sheriff's Department posted for $10,000 is still being offered, as well as an additional $5,000 reward posted by the family.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Escambia County Sheriff's Department at 251-867-0304.
