    Shannon Rippy


    Police looking for missing woman -

    Shannon Rippy, 54, was last seen at her home in the 100 block of South Fifth Avenue about 7 p.m. Saturday, according to a Facebook event called Search Team for Shannon Rippy. Police met Rippy's family at the Fifth Avenue home to conduct a welfare check at her residence and, after there was no answer at the front door, Blanton said, entered the home. Rippy was not there.

    Michele Seidman gives us the story. “Shannon and her Mom spoke Saturday (April 5th) night around 7pm. Shannon told her Mom she was turning in soon. Sunday, the family went over to celebrate her birthday and she was not there at her home at the 100 block of S 5th. They left the gifts on the porch. I am guessing they figured she would be back soon. But she did not contact them again and Monday morning they went back to her house and the gifts were still on the porch. They contacted the police who helped them enter the house. They did not find Shannon. That is what we know.

    This lady is in the film industry as a production manager. Here's the Search Team for Shannon Rippy (Van Newkirk) Page:

    https://www.facebook.com/events/619207968154616/


    The Wilmywood Daily, a blog-type site that posts undustry-related news has a post about her. It basically says how the family came to find her missing. It was her Birthday and they left presents on her porch as she was not answering. Then a day later the presents were still there. It also left a contact name and FB page for that person for any information. I don't think I can post the page as it really isn't MSM.




    Okay nm! it has been posted!

    " "I want my daughter," Bobbi Lewis said. "We planned on meeting the next day for lunch, it was her birthday. Her aunt and I were going to take her out, and she wasn't there, and we haven’t heard from her since." "

    Sounds like Shannon disappeared Saturday night, sometime after 7:00PM. At the facebook page, there is a mention of an argument that took place at the Husk that Saturday at 3:00PM. Wonder what the details are?

    A search team assembled Tuesday morning on Fifth Street to look for Shannon Rippy, who was often seen riding her segway in downtown Wilmington.

    They say Saturday, Rippy got a new hair cut, a spray tan, she was getting ready for her birthday weekend. Her friends say they've been checking local businesses to see if anyone heard anything but so far nothing.

    "Shannon's just a warm sensitive person," Fernando said. "A hard working young lady, and she was well loved I could say that."

    Getting a spray tan and a haircut, in preparation for a her birthday weekend. Doesn't sound like a woman who wants to disappear. Or for that matter, a woman who intends to go to bed shortly after 7:00 PM?

    It sounds like she had been at the Husk earlier in the afternoon, and was rumored to have had an argument with someone there and left. Did someone call her later, and ask to stop by?

    Also on the fb page it was posted that she was seeing someone new. And that she was going to celebrate her birthday with them. Her relationship status is: it's complicated.

    I would assume LE is already getting the phone records. Wonder if her phone or purse was at her home.

    Her segway was located and was not missing.

    I wonder if she was at The Husk from 3 until 7pm? There is a photo of her entering The Husk at 3 pm, and this article states she was there at 7. Was she seen on camera leaving? Was she leaving alone or leaving with someone?
    IMOO.

    Is there any news on this missing person?

    Are we allowed to post verifiable information on a missing person? The state of NC has some records on her...
