October 8, 2003
AIKEN - Aiken County investigators have searched two homes and four vehicles in the case of a missing Beech Island woman, but are no closer to learning her fate, authorities said Wednesday.
As recently as Monday, an acquaintance of 34-year-old Lisa Shuttleworth consented to a search of his car, said sheriff's Capt. Wallace Owens, without naming the person. All of the searches involved people who knew Ms. Shuttleworth and were conducted with consent. No search warrants were required, and no one has been identified as a hard suspect in the Sept. 5 disappearance of the mother of two.

"Everyone has cooperated 100 percent," Capt. Owens said. He said the searches "haven't revealed anything out of the ordinary. We're just covering all of our bases."

Ms. Shuttleworth was last heard from on a Thursday morning when she spoke with her 14-year-old daughter by phone. When her 9-year-old son returned to their Miller Street home from school that afternoon, he found it locked and no one home.

"I honestly don't know what happened," said Ms. Shuttleworth's mother, Lorraine Mabrey, who has assumed care of the two children. "It's just like she disappeared from her house into thin air. From everything we know, she intended to come back."

Fliers with Ms. Shuttleworth's picture have been posted at businesses. Speculation of her fate has run rampant, her mother said.

"There's been so many darn rumors going around, wasting people's time," Ms. Mabrey said. "It's ridiculous. I guess people don't have anything better to do."

Capt. Owens said his investigators and agents from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division continue to run down leads. "We're hoping we can wrap this up soon," he said.

Missing woman's family seeks answers
Lorraine and Jerry Mabrey's 34-year-old daughter Lisa Shuttleworth has been missing for seven weeks. The family believes Ms. Shuttleworth, a divorced mother of two from Beech Island, was taken against her will.
Daughter would not leave on her own, parents say. Seven weeks have passed since Lisa Shuttleworth vanished from her Beech Island home, a pot of tea left on the stove. For her children, family and friends, the uncertainty clouding her disappearance has created a gnawing, heart-wrenching ordeal with few answers.

The 34-year-old divorced mother of two was an outgoing and independent woman who put her children first, said her parents, Lorraine and Jerry Mabrey. They can't believe that she left of her own accord, taking nothing but her purse and the clothes on her back, leaving behind her car and a home locked tight.

But they remain unsure what to think.

"Initially I would not accept that she left on her own, then after all the rumors, you think maybe there's that possibility," said Mr. Mabrey, a retired Army recruiter who lives with his wife in North Augusta. "But we know her, and we say there's no way. It's just mind-boggling. It keeps you completely off-balance. It's enough to drive anybody crazy."

Because of the lack of any sign of a break-in or struggle, Mrs. Mabrey thinks her daughter encountered someone she knew at her white-siding house on Miller Street. She and her husband believe an abduction resulted.

"Right now, today, I feel like she did not go on her own - I feel like she left against her will," Mr. Mabrey said. "She had just brewed that pot of tea. I don't think she would have done that, decided to leave and not come back."

Ms. Shuttleworth was last heard from early on the morning of Sept. 4, when she spoke by phone to her 14-year-old daughter. The girl spent the night with a friend and was to be picked up by her mother after school.

Ms. Shuttleworth was last seen about an hour after the 7 a.m. call, when an acquaintance saw her blue-green 1994 Grand Am at the Pit Stop convenience store on Pine Log Road. The witness said she appeared to be reading as she sat in the idling car, Mrs. Mabrey said.

Lisa Shuttleworth was known by many in the midlands region, where she spent all her life. She attended North Augusta Middle School and graduated from Midland Valley High in 1987. She married Jack Shuttleworth in North Augusta in 1990. Daughter Krystina was born in 1988, followed by son Ryan in 1994. The Shuttleworths divorced in 1996.

After their daughter vanished, the Mabreys took custody of the children through a mutual agreement with Mr. Shuttleworth, who retains visitation rights. Since high school, Ms. Shuttleworth worked a variety of jobs, mostly in bookkeeping or secretarial work, including stints at Dixie Clay Co. in North Augusta and the Savannah River Site. Her last job was managing Jerico's, a private club on Belvedere-Clearwater Road owned by her father.

Authorities have been purposely vague when asked whether she was seeing anyone at the time of her disappearance. Her parents say they weren't aware of anyone in her life when she vanished.

They have heard names mentioned, but decline to elaborate in order to protect the investigation.

Aiken County sheriff's investigators acknowledge they have questioned several people and been granted permission to search at least two cars and two houses, but won't name those people.

"They have been working on this," Mrs. Mabrey said. "I think they're working on something right now."

Wallace Owens, chief investigator for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office, says his investigators have "some leads we are running down. We got a ton of leads in this thing, it's just taking us some time to run them down. Every day we're working 10 and 11 hours on this. It takes a lot of time."

Capt. Owens won't talk specifics, but indicates some theories are emerging about the case.

"We've got some things we just aren't prepared to go public with," he said. "We're just seeing what these next couple weeks lead to."

For the Mabreys, no break in the case seems imminent as the two-month mark approaches.

They try to fill the void left in their grandchildren's lives and make life "as normal as possible" for them, Mrs. Mabrey said. Krystina refuses to talk about her mother's disappearance. Ryan tells them he "just tries not to think about his mama."

"Somebody out there somewhere knows something," Mr. Mabrey said. "This is a small area and I just don't understand why word hasn't leaked out."

"They have no idea what we're going through," Mrs. Mabrey said. "It's heart-wrenching."

AIKEN - A heartsick Ryan Shuttleworth left a note at his grandparents' North Augusta home one recent afternoon, scrawled in his 9-year-old handwriting.
"He said he wanted to go look for his mama and he wasn't going to come back until he found her," Lorraine Mabrey recalled.

It has been nine months since Lisa Shuttleworth, the 34-year-old single mother of Ryan and his 14-year-old sister Krystina, vanished from her Beech Island home. Like so many disappearances before hers, the case has confounded investigators who are short on clues and resigned to chasing down rumors.

"We've searched places, dug up places, but they turned out to be nothing but rumors," said Capt. Wallace Owens, the chief investigator with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. "But even if it's a rumor, we'll pursue it."

A North Augusta family should be celebrating a mother's 39th birthday. But instead they're wondering where she is.

Lisa Shuttleworth disappeared from her home in Beech Island nearly five years ago. The last time family members heard from her was on the telephone that morning. Now her daughter and mother are left with unanswered questions.
Looraine Maybrey is her mother.
She said, "You would think after five years it would get easier but it doesn't. She's a part of me.”

Mother remains missing
Family marks grim 3-year anniversary
By Sandi Martin | South Carolina Bureau
Monday, September 04, 2006 NORTH AUGUSTA - Krystina Shuttleworth's mother was supposed to be the one who put her cap and gown on for senior pictures.


Lisa Shuttleworth disappeared Sept. 4, 2003.
These are the moments that make life so much harder, Krystina said.

She and her 12-year-old brother have coped well since their mother, Lisa Shuttleworth, vanished three years ago today.

But it's been a "really big struggle," Krystina said.

"The main thing that's getting to me at this point in my life is graduation is coming up, and she's not going to be there," the 17-year-old Midland Valley High senior said.

Ms. Shuttleworth's family has resigned themselves to the strong - and worst - possibility: That the single mother of two is dead.

What they want now, said Ms. Shuttleworth's mother, Lorraine Mabrey, is closure, to know what happened to her and for the person responsible to be charged.

Someone out there has the information that can make all that happen, Mrs. Mabrey said.

Police "are sure foul play was involved," Mrs. Mabrey said. "It's just that nobody's talking."

Investigator Charles Cain, who is now handling the case, said solving Ms. Shuttleworth's disappearance is still a priority for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

"We are still aggressively pursuing a very strong lead," he said. "It has not been put on the back burner at any time."

He declined to release many details about the status of the case - although Mrs. Mabrey hinted that she knows of a new lead authorities are pursuing - but said he has interviewed several people of interest in the past year.

"We have to wait for developments to arise," he said. "We have a good basic theory of where this is going to take us. Right now, it is still at the circumstantial phase."

Few details are known about what Ms. Shuttleworth did the last day she was seen, Sept. 4, 2003.

What is known is this:

About 7 that morning, she talked to Krystina, then 14, on the phone. Krystina had spent the night with a friend.

Ms. Shuttleworth took her son, Ryan, to Warrenville Elementary School, telling the then-9-year-old that she was going to see a friend that day.

About 8 a.m., an acquaintance spotted her at the Pit Stop convenience store on Pine Log Road. She must have stopped to get gas, her mother said.

She'd borrowed a white car from a friend, Neal Durden, who is now deceased. She called him at about 10 a.m., Mrs. Mabrey said, and also told him that she was expecting a guest.

All phone calls after 10 a.m. went unanswered, Mrs. Mabrey said.

Mr. Durden went by the house later that afternoon and found the Beech Island home locked tight. When Ryan got home from school, Mrs. Mabrey said, Mr. Durden brought the child to her house.

Mrs. Mabrey said that her daughter rarely missed meeting her son at the bus stop after school.

When Mrs. Mabrey, her husband and Ryan went back to the home with a key, they found both her daughter's car and the loaned white one in the driveway and a pot of tea on the stove.

Her purse was gone.

Someone took Ms. Shuttleworth, Mrs. Mabrey said.

"That's what we're thinking, that she left with someone and all signs say that she was planning to come back," Mrs. Mabrey said.

Ms. Shuttleworth, who would have turned 37 in June, would not have deliberately abandoned her children, Mrs. Mabrey said.

"She was an excellent mother."

Both Krystina and Ryan are now in the custody of their maternal grandparents.

Mrs. Mabrey is heartened by a new way a tipster can tell authorities what he or she knows, without fear of repercussion and with the hope of receiving a reward of up to $1,000. When her daughter disappeared three years ago, she said, Crimestoppers of the Midlands didn't operate in Aiken County.

Even if there are no eyewitnesses to what happened to her daughter, Mrs. Mabrey said she believes the person will eventually slip up and tell someone about being involved.

"If somebody has done something to her, how can they keep that inside?" she asked.

Lisa Shuttleworth


Above Images: Shuttleworth, circa 2003


Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

Missing Since: September 4, 2003 from Aiken, South Carolina
Classification: Endangered Missing
Age: 34 years old
Height and Weight: 5'3, 102 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, blue eyes.


Details of Disappearance

Shuttleworth's teenage daughter was spending the night at a friend's home on September 3, 2003. She called her mother at her Aiken, South Carolina home and they spoke at 7:00 a.m. on September 4. About an hour later, an acquaintance saw Shuttleworth in her blue/green 1994 Ponitiac Grand Am at the Pit Stop convenience store on Pine Log Road in Aiken. She appeared to be reading as she sat in her idling car, which she had borrowed from a friend. Shuttleworth called her friend at 10:00 a.m. and told him she was expecting a guest. She was supposed to pick up her son from a bus stop that afternoon, but did not. She has never been heard from again, and all phone calls after 10:00 a.m. went unanswered.
Shuttleworth was divorced in 2003 and has two children. She is a graduate of Midland Valley High School and had work experience in bookkeeping and secretarial duties. She was unemployed at the time of her disappearance; her last job was managing Jerico's, a private club on Belvedere-Clearwater Road. She took nothing with her but her purse when she disappeared, leaving her car behind and her home on Miller Street locked with tea on the stove.

Shuttleworth's parents believe she was abducted from outside her home, and police suspect foul play was involved in her disappearance. It is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or to abandon her children, who are now in the care of their maternal grandparents. Shuttleworth's case remains unsolved.

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C.-- Some families in Augusta and Aiken County are waiting for word about a missing loved one, but that news may not be what they are hoping to hear.

This after female human remains are discovered in woods off of Austin Graybill Road Wednesday night in North Augusta.

On Wednesday night, woods in North Augusta turned into a crime scene when someone found human remains scattered and badly decomposed.

"It's obvious the remains have been here for quite some time." says Lt. Tim Pearson with North Augusta Public Safety.

Thursday the remains were excavated. Investigators say underwear on the body suggests it is a woman. The other clothing on the body was rotted. But, tags suggest the woman may have worn larger clothing.

A lot of possibilities but no definite answers.

"TV it all happens in an hour. Not the case here. We're slow. Very methodical." says Lt. Pearson.

A long wait that just got even longer, the autopsy now pushed back until Monday; putting the families of several local missing women on alert.

Here are some of them:

39-year-old Karen Pryor. She disappeared from Augusta in September of 2006.

76-year-old Sadie Ednie who wandered away from her retirement home back in 1992 and 15 years later, still no answers for her family.

34-year-old Lisa Shuttleworth of Aiken is another possibility. She vanished in 2004 and is the county's only active missing person case.

Joining those families is Deborah Dill's. We last spoke with them in May.

"This is an absolute nightmare." says Dill's daughter Amanda Daniels.

A nightmare made worse by false hopes. Dill went missing in March of 2006. And last November, a body surfaced in some Thomson woods.
A bit of hope that turned into disappointment; it turns out the body was that of another 48-year-old missing woman, Lula Bell Scott.

Dill's family hopes this time is different. Here's why:.Richmond county investigators tell News 12 the only dental records they've sent to be looked at in this case are Deborah Dill's.

That might bring some closure the family has long been looking for. "Whatever the reason. If anybody knows anything..if they would just call and help us put an end to this nightmare." pleas Daniels.

And it's not just those families that are paying close attention to this case. Since the remains were not far from I-20, there is the possibility this is another missing woman from another area.

The autopsy was pushed back for scheduling conflicts. It should take place Monday in Newberry.

COLD CASE: What Happened To Lisa Shuttleworth?
Five years ago, Lisa Shuttleworth was supposed to pick up her young son from the bus stop, but she never showed up

Five years ago, Lisa Shuttleworth was supposed to pick up her young son from the bus stop, but she never showed up...and she was never seen again. There were no signs of a struggle, nothing seemed out of the ordinary, and today, her family is still looking for answers. WJBF-TV News Channel 6's Joy Howe sat down with Shuttleworth's family. She has more on the story.

Beech Island, SC -- Her car was in the driveway, a pot of tea was on the stove. Her purse was missing, but there were no signs of a struggle. Today, investigators join the family in believing she didn't just walk away from her life. Somehow, Lisa Shuttleworth was taken.

She has her mother's eyes.

Loraine Mabrey, Lisa's Shuttleworth's mother: "The older she gets, the more she looks like her, to me..."

Krystina Shuttleworth sits on her mother's lap in pictures...today, at 19, she sits beside her grandmother.

Krystina Shuttleworth, Lisa Shuttleworth's daughter: "She's my mom, when my mom was gone, she was here. She hasn't left my side."

Krystina and her younger brother live with their grandparents, and have ever since their mother vanished, on September 4, 2003. They celebrated her 39th birthday this week, writing messages on balloons that they released by the river.

Loraine: "It helps to get all that out. I have written things to her, several times. I guess it's like therapy."

In five years, the family has gotten closer. Krystina graduated from high school...her brother is now the age she was, when her mother disappeared. Not a day goes by that they don't think about their mother.

Krystina: "Somebody out there knows something, and how they can keep it in for nearly 5 years is beyond me."

Krystina says her brother worries he'll forget his mother's voice and her face, so they keep pictures close by. The search continues, but the family says they don't hope Lisa will be back, any more, they hope someone will give them a body to bury.

Krystina: "She would want me to be strong, she would want me to be doing this. Because she would be doing this for me."

Krystina says she plans to go college and become a criminal investigator. She wants to study forensics and work on missing persons cases.

Aiken County investigators say this is still a "very much open" case. Just last year, they received new leads that they are following up on.

Why don't they ask the 23 felons they just caught in Operation Falcon if any of them know anything? BTW, the "readers' reaction" comments box is not working for the Operation Falcon story by Renita Crawford. Could you fix it please, or remove it if you don't want comments to that story?

Trail grows colder in missing-persons cases


June 20, 2004


AIKEN - A heartsick Ryan Shuttleworth left a note at his grandparents' North Augusta home one recent afternoon, scrawled in his 9-year-old handwriting.


"He said he wanted to go look for his mama and he wasn't going to come back until he found her," Lorraine Mabrey recalled.

It has been nine months since Lisa Shuttleworth, the 34-year-old single mother of Ryan and his 14-year-old sister Krystina, vanished from her Beech Island home. Like so many disappearances before hers, the case has confounded investigators who are short on clues and resigned to chasing down rumors.

"We've searched places, dug up places, but they turned out to be nothing but rumors," said Capt. Wallace Owens, the chief investigator with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. "But even if it's a rumor, we'll pursue it."

Ms. Shuttleworth's disappearance isn't the only unsolved missing-person case in the Aiken-Augusta area. In March 2002, Alzheimer's sufferer Mary Alice Dixon, 86, walked away from her home in New Ellenton and has never been found. Another Alzheimer's victim, 86-year-old Sadie Edney, wandered from a Richmond County personal care home in May 1992.

"Alzheimer's patients are hard to find with tracking dogs," Capt. Owens said, explaining that they don't run and shed dead skin cells the way prison escapees do. "You can't track them like fugitives."

Then there are the abducted children: Jeremy Grice, who at age 9 disappeared from his North Augusta home in 1985, and Tilwanda Cheatham, who was 8 when she vanished from her Aiken home in 1989. Augustan Tiffany Nelson was 10 when she was last seen riding her bicycle on Getzen Drive in June 1994.

Richmond County sheriff's Investigator Ronald Sylvester, who specializes in missing-person investigations, said there have been no new leads in Tiffany's case.

"It's tough for the families,'' said Capt. Owens, who says his investigators have run down "a ton of leads" in the Shuttleworth case. "At a certain point they begin to think foul play is involved, and we do, too, but we can't say that. We don't have a crime scene."

In Aiken County, as many as 10 missing-persons cases are reported each month. Investigator Sylvester said Richmond County handles anywhere from 50 to 80 cases a month.

"Usually within two or three days they turn up," alive and well, Capt. Owens said.

"The vast majority are found," Investigator Sylvester said. "The majority are not in danger."

However, there are exceptions - two very visible ones during the past several months in Augusta.

Tamara Dunstan, 29, who was abducted from her mother's west Augusta home in late April, was expecting her first child. Her remains, along with those of her unborn child, were found off a rural road in Edgefield County.

Shanequa Carpenter, 24, who also was expecting a child, wasn't reported missing until a motorist called sheriff's deputies after finding her infant daughter and toddler son on a south Augusta roadway.

Her body was found severely burned less than a mile from her home.

In both cases, authorities mobilized to find the women. In Mrs. Dunstan's case, friends and family blanketed posters with a picture of her in her wedding veil around Augusta and as far away as Atlanta and Columbia.

The case attracted nationwide media attention.

As the days stretch on, investigators turn to family and friends to cobble together a personality sketch of the missing person: Are there relationship troubles, emotional problems or issues with substance abuse? Did the person have any reason to run away?

"We've had some folks who decided they just wanted to leave," Capt. Owens said.

Should people decide to pack up and go, authorities can track them through a nationwide FBI system by using their Social Security numbers.

"If they move to California and get an apartment, the system will alert us," Capt. Owens said.

Tracking missing and abducted children is much harder. Unless they show up to register in a school with doctored documents, there is no paper trail of credit card receipts or cashed checks, as there is with adults.

Lt. Troy Elwell, an investigator with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office Juvenile Investigation Division, says he has gotten little help from relatives in the 1989 Cheatham disappearance. In the ensuing years, people have moved and become difficult to find. Some haven't been cooperative, he said.

"The older the case gets, the harder it gets, no matter what," Lt. Elwell said.

Law enforcement typically relies on standard publicity tools to get the missing person's face out in the public: fliers, nationwide crime bulletins, news releases. In recent years, Internet sites featuring missing and endangered people have multiplied.

Investigators have increasingly relied on more analytical methods. In the Shuttleworth case, they turned to a criminal profiler with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division "to help give us a direction to go in," Capt. Owens said.

Sheriff's officials have used cadaver dogs, administered polygraph tests to at least two potential suspects and processed three cars, all to no avail. About the only thing they haven't turned to is a psychic, Capt. Owens said.

"I know some agencies have used them, but I've never seen where it helped any," he said. "I'm kind of skeptical about that."

Mrs. Mabrey, desperate for any news about her daughter, says she has given serious thought to consulting a psychic detective.

"We don't have anything to lose," she said. "We just feel helpless at this point."

The gnawing uncertainty is the worst part of her daughter's disappearance, Mrs. Mabrey said.

"Just not even knowing what has happened, it just consumes you day and night,'' she said. "I'm just so afraid this is becoming a cold case. I don't know how in the world we are going to survive just not knowing."

Missing Aiken County woman's family hoping for closure

Jun 25, 2008


A North Augusta family should be celebrating a mother's 39th birthday. But instead they're wondering where she is.

Lisa Shuttleworth disappeared from her home in Beech Island nearly five years ago. The last time family members heard from her was on the telephone that morning. Now her daughter and mother are left with unanswered questions.

Looraine Maybrey is her mother.

She said, "You would think after five years it would get easier but it doesn't. She's a part of me.”

Krystina Shuttleworth is Lisa’s daughter. She said she’s upset that her mother isn’t here to see her grow up.

Shuttleworth said, "She deserved to be able to watch her kids graduate, be there at her kids wedding. I'm sorry; I'm going to cry...be there to hold her grandchildren. She’s not."

Now life is at a standstill for Mabrey and her granddaughter. They are left with unanswered questions.

"It's like I can't hit play until I find out what happened and why...and I'm so scared I'm never going to find out. That's the hardest part," said Shuttleworth.

Mabrey said, "Everyday we get up, it goes through our minds, where is she...she's not here, it’s this cloud hanging over our heads."

Although Lisa Shuttleworth’s case is still on investigators desks, the family hopes by talking about Lisa, someone somewhere will lead them to her.

"I want them to come forward, they can be anonymous, I don't care, just bring my momma home," said Shuttleworth.

Maybrey said, "We just don't want the public to forget her because I'm afraid if they do, that person will never come forward and we may never find her."

The hope of finding Lisa is the one birthday wish her family is making for her.

"If there could be one wish that I had, it would be closure, nothing else," said Shuttleworth.

Maybrey said, "Parents are suppose to die before their children and um that's why. We just miss her a lot.”

Lisa's family celebrated her birthday Wednesday. They had a special cake made in her memory and released balloons at the Riverwalk in downtown Augusta.

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office said the Lisa Shuttleworth disappearance case is still active.

They said the only thing missing from her home was her purse and there were no signs of forced entry.

Investigators said they are still gathering evidence and remain hopeful.

"They are confident we're in the right direction...we feel real good about this case...investigation,” said Investigator Charles Cain, Aiken County Sheriff’s Office.

If you have any information about Lisa Shuttleworth, please call the Aiken County Sheriff's Office at (803) 642-1762.

Five years later, family still looking for answers in disappearance

When 34-year-old Lisa Shuttleworth vanished from her Beech Island home nearly five years ago, she left behind family members who agonize every day over the many unanswered questions surrounding her disappearance, holding their breath every time the remains of a woman are found and rumors begin to circulate once again in the community.
Left with just photos of her mother, now 19 years old, Krystina Shuttleworth has started to resemble her mother. With wide-set eyes and a slight frame, she isn't much taller than her mother who, at 5-foot-3, barely tipped the scales at 100 pounds.
While Krystina vividly remembers "mama" and can still hear her voice, she struggles knowing that her younger brother, Ryan, who was just 9 when their mother disappeared, has a difficult time doing the same.
"People have forgotten, but her family hasn't," she said. "Maybe if someone with the least bit of information comes forward, they will have the last puzzle piece we need to find out what happened."
Lisa Shuttleworth was reported missing on Sept. 4, 2003, by her mother, Lorraine Mabrey, when Shuttleworth failed to pick up 9-year-old Ryan from the school bus stop.
Krystina last spoke with her mother that morning to tell her she was planning on catching a ride after school with friends. But later that evening, she began to worry because she couldn't reach her mother.
"About 6 or 7 that night, I called my grandparents and went to the house," she said. "Tea was still on the stove, but it had been moved with a napkin that was still on the handle."
Shuttleworth's purse was gone, but her driver's license and social security card were still there, Krystina said.
Investigator Chuck Cain said Shuttleworth did not willfully walk away from her home.
"It's a delicate case, and we can't say anything to jeopardize it, but there is nothing to suggest that she just walked out of her life," he said.
That appears to be the only absolute.
"She was a single mom, and she would not leave her two kids," Krystina said. "The one thing I know is that she is not at peace - it's been five years."
A freshman when her mother vanished, Krystina has had boyfriends and break-ups, been to the prom and graduated high school, and, fighting back tears, she said she will get married and have kids - all without her mother.
Sadly, she has little hope that her mother is still alive, but she is holding out for justice.
Although the investigation has been labor-intensive, detectives say they think they are headed in the right direction.
"From the beginning to where we are now, we took what was initially available to us and looked at it from a different perspective," Cain said. "That opened up a new avenue for us, around 2006-2007, and it took us in the same direction, but further and deeper along the path."
The investigator said he wouldn't speculate on the events of the morning Shuttleworth went missing but instead is focusing his efforts on finding the answers for her loved ones.
When remains have been found in the community, friends call the family.
Just months after her mother's disappearance, a set of human remains was unearthed in the area, and a friend of Krystina's called with her condolences.
"I just lost it," she said.
There have been several similar phone calls, but none has shed any light on the mystery surrounding her mother's disappearance. For that, the family is relying on the sheriff's office and asking for the public's help.
Shuttleworth's mother said that not having answers is agonizing.
"It's difficult to lose a child at any age," Lorraine said. "I don't care how old, but this not knowing what happened ..."
Krystina and Ryan, now 14, live with their grandparents, Lorraine and Jerry. Krystina said she is grateful for their support.
"It's been 100 percent my grandparents," she said.
The family hopes the "roller coaster" will end soon and both they and "mama" can have peace.
Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.

Mother remains missing
Family marks grim 3-year anniversary
By Sandi Martin | South Carolina Bureau
Monday, September 04, 2006 NORTH AUGUSTA - Krystina Shuttleworth's mother was supposed to be the one who put her cap and gown on for senior pictures.



3 / 3

Special
Lisa Shuttleworth disappeared Sept. 4, 2003.
Click photo for optionsThese are the moments that make life so much harder, Krystina said.

She and her 12-year-old brother have coped well since their mother, Lisa Shuttleworth, vanished three years ago today.

But it's been a "really big struggle," Krystina said.

"The main thing that's getting to me at this point in my life is graduation is coming up, and she's not going to be there," the 17-year-old Midland Valley High senior said.

Ms. Shuttleworth's family has resigned themselves to the strong - and worst - possibility: That the single mother of two is dead.

What they want now, said Ms. Shuttleworth's mother, Lorraine Mabrey, is closure, to know what happened to her and for the person responsible to be charged.

Someone out there has the information that can make all that happen, Mrs. Mabrey said.

Police "are sure foul play was involved," Mrs. Mabrey said. "It's just that nobody's talking."

Investigator Charles Cain, who is now handling the case, said solving Ms. Shuttleworth's disappearance is still a priority for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

"We are still aggressively pursuing a very strong lead," he said. "It has not been put on the back burner at any time."

He declined to release many details about the status of the case - although Mrs. Mabrey hinted that she knows of a new lead authorities are pursuing - but said he has interviewed several people of interest in the past year.

"We have to wait for developments to arise," he said. "We have a good basic theory of where this is going to take us. Right now, it is still at the circumstantial phase."

Few details are known about what Ms. Shuttleworth did the last day she was seen, Sept. 4, 2003.

What is known is this:

About 7 that morning, she talked to Krystina, then 14, on the phone. Krystina had spent the night with a friend.

Ms. Shuttleworth took her son, Ryan, to Warrenville Elementary School, telling the then-9-year-old that she was going to see a friend that day.

About 8 a.m., an acquaintance spotted her at the Pit Stop convenience store on Pine Log Road. She must have stopped to get gas, her mother said.

She'd borrowed a white car from a friend, Neal Durden, who is now deceased. She called him at about 10 a.m., Mrs. Mabrey said, and also told him that she was expecting a guest.

All phone calls after 10 a.m. went unanswered, Mrs. Mabrey said.

Mr. Durden went by the house later that afternoon and found the Beech Island home locked tight. When Ryan got home from school, Mrs. Mabrey said, Mr. Durden brought the child to her house.

Mrs. Mabrey said that her daughter rarely missed meeting her son at the bus stop after school.

When Mrs. Mabrey, her husband and Ryan went back to the home with a key, they found both her daughter's car and the loaned white one in the driveway and a pot of tea on the stove.

Her purse was gone.

Someone took Ms. Shuttleworth, Mrs. Mabrey said.

"That's what we're thinking, that she left with someone and all signs say that she was planning to come back," Mrs. Mabrey said.

Ms. Shuttleworth, who would have turned 37 in June, would not have deliberately abandoned her children, Mrs. Mabrey said.

"She was an excellent mother."

Both Krystina and Ryan are now in the custody of their maternal grandparents.

Mrs. Mabrey is heartened by a new way a tipster can tell authorities what he or she knows, without fear of repercussion and with the hope of receiving a reward of up to $1,000. When her daughter disappeared three years ago, she said, Crimestoppers of the Midlands didn't operate in Aiken County.

Even if there are no eyewitnesses to what happened to her daughter, Mrs. Mabrey said she believes the person will eventually slip up and tell someone about being involved.

"If somebody has done something to her, how can they keep that inside?" she asked.

Beech Island, SC -- Her car was in the driveway, a pot of tea was on the stove. Her purse was missing, but there were no signs of a struggle. Today, investigators join the family in believing she didn't just walk away from her life. Somehow, Lisa Shuttleworth was taken.

She has her mother's eyes.

Loraine Mabrey, Lisa's Shuttleworth's mother: "The older she gets, the more she looks like her, to me..."

Krystina Shuttleworth sits on her mother's lap in pictures...today, at 19, she sits beside her grandmother.

Krystina Shuttleworth, Lisa Shuttleworth's daughter: "She's my mom, when my mom was gone, she was here. She hasn't left my side."

Krystina and her younger brother live with their grandparents, and have ever since their mother vanished, on September 4, 2003. They celebrated her 39th birthday this week, writing messages on balloons that they released by the river.

Loraine: "It helps to get all that out. I have written things to her, several times. I guess it's like therapy."

In five years, the family has gotten closer. Krystina graduated from high school...her brother is now the age she was, when her mother disappeared. Not a day goes by that they don't think about their mother.

Krystina: "Somebody out there knows something, and how they can keep it in for nearly 5 years is beyond me."

Krystina says her brother worries he'll forget his mother's voice and her face, so they keep pictures close by. The search continues, but the family says they don't hope Lisa will be back, any more, they hope someone will give them a body to bury.

Krystina: "She would want me to be strong, she would want me to be doing this. Because she would be doing this for me."

Krystina says she plans to go college and become a criminal investigator. She wants to study forensics and work on missing persons cases.

Aiken County investigators say this is still a "very much open" case. Just last year, they received new leads that they are following up on.

Why don't they ask the 23 felons they just caught in Operation Falcon if any of them know anything? BTW, the "readers' reaction" comments box is not working for the Operation Falcon story by Renita Crawford. Could you fix it please, or remove it if you don't want comments to that story?

Thanks for the reminder! I e-mailed Dr. Craig, today, she responded that, although Shuttleworths missing info states that DNA is available, it has not been entered into either databases, so unable to rule that way. A request has been made as to dental charts, none received as of yet! Dr. Craig also stated that she would enter result on NamUs, if Shuttleworth was excluded....
Hurry up and wait.....
P.S. I have not received any response from Aiken County Sheriff, since March!

That God allows them peace and the knowledge of the circumstances and gives them strength and patience in seeing justice served for Lisa. Also, that God gives direction to all the Detectives (sleuthers) involved.

Aiken Co. woman still missing 9 years later


LANGLEY, S.C. -- As purple balloons rise toward the heavens, family members watch from below. They hope the balloons will somehow bring them closer to the spirit of Lisa Shuttleworth. The Beech Island woman was last seen on Sept. 4, 2003 -- nine years ago.

Aiken County woman still missing after 10 years (http://www.aikenstandard.com/article/20140112/AIK0101/140119870/1008/AIK0102/aiken-county-woman-still-missing-after-10-years)

In the 10 years since her disappearance, Shuttleworth's family said prayer has helped get them from day to day. Mabrey and her husband received custody of Shuttleworth's children and raised them. Each year on her birthday, they go to the Augusta Riverwalk and release balloons with messages to her written on them. They've found some comfort getting involved in nonprofit organizations whose aim is to find missing people.

Krystina, who is now six months pregnant with Shuttleworth's granddaughter, said she tried for a while to “pause” her life while her mother has been missing.

“You can't,” she said. “You can't just hit pause and hit play when you want to – it doesn't work like that.”
