On Wednesday the police are continuing their search for a missing Maryland woman that has been missing since Saturday.
Robin L. Pope, 51, of Stevensville, Md. went missing from a home on the 100-block of Beach Road home where she once lived with her husband. A bizarre twist to the story is her beloved Great Dane was found dead on the beach near the home.
Pope's estranged husband, Wayne said Robin came to pick up some belongings from the home. He left her there alone on Friday night and when he came back she was gone, but her keys, cell phone and car were still there. He reported her missing to the police, reports WUSA-9 news.
There has been no determination how Pope's 11-year-old Great Dane, Bella died. At first the police suspected traumatic injuries on the dog, but a veterinarian found none. The dog had large tumors on her body and the veterinarian said the dog did not drown nor did it die from external injuries, reports My Eastern Shore MD news. A current theory is that the dog died from exposure. The police are waiting for a final determination.
A sonar-equipped boat from the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office has been searching the Chesapeake Bay and the Maryland State Police Underwater Recovery Team divers searched the water on Tuesday.
A page set up on Facebook is planning a search for Robin on Sunday, March 10.
