    NC - Meta Valentine, 43, Fayetteville, 1 Nov 2014

    Meta Valentine


    MISSING CHURCH SECRETARY HAS FRIENDS, FAMILY WORRIED IN FAYETTEVILLE
    FAYETTEVILLE (WTVD) --
    Friends of a missing church secretary in Fayetteville are worried about her. Meta Valentine, 43, didn't show up for a Bible study, and no one has heard from her for over a week. Valentine's neighbor Edna Hester is worried. "I keep my door locked because I don't really know what happened," said Hester. Valentine's friends and church family don't believe that she just vanished. Leonard Rowles said it's hard to believe no one has heard from her. "You could pretty much set your watch by her coming to things church related," said Rowles. Church members went looking for her when she missed Bible study. The first place they checked was her apartment. "When we got there we knocked on the door. We tried looking through the window to see if we could see her...nothing," Rowles said.
    Police later searched Valentine's apartment, but didn't find her or any clue as to what may have happened. Hester said the night before Valentine disappeared, she heard her arguing with a man who stayed with Valentine. "She would sit on the side porch with him," Hester said, "but recently after they had an argument, she would not allow him in her home. He was knocking. She would not answer the door. He went to the side door and knocked, then he went to the front door, and she would not let him in."

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Police say Fayetteville church secretary Meta Valentine vanished after a community watch meeting

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    an odd headline for that piece as the community watch meeting isn't talked about at all and most of the article places suspicion on her ex (identified in the video footage) who after initially cooperating with the investigation has since "vanished."

    McDowell has dated Valentine on and off since high school and shares a child with her. Police believe he has left the area, and they insist he is not a suspect in the case. "McDowell is presumed innocent," said Detective Michael Ballard. "We are attempting to contact him for re-questioning."

    The person of interest investigators want to speak with hasn't been seen since last year. The relationship between him and Valentine is disturbing.

    "Fayetteville police still looking for clues to help find missing woman"

    http://www.fayobserver.com/news/crim...6d71e3c86.html

    Search warrant affidavits in the Clerk of Court's Office reveal a troubling history between Valentine and McDowell.

    In 1999, document said, McDowell kidnapped Valentine and her then-boyfriend, Kenneth D. Thompson, from the woman's home. Thompson was bound, gagged, pistol-whipped and stuffed into the truck of Valentine's car, documents said.

    At that time, affidavits said, McDowell told Valentine, "My worst nightmare is losing you to another man."
    McDowell was charged with two counts of first-degree kidnapping and one count each of first-degree burglary and shooting into an occupied vehicle. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2001 and was released in September 2011, according to state Department of Public Safety records.

    Once McDowell was released, he and Valentine resumed their tumultuous relationship, documents said.

    I was thinking that as well but apparently they found him.

    It has been almost a year since Meta Price Valentine was last seen.

    Valentine was reported missing Oct. 29, 2014 just after family members say she had just ended a toxic relationship with her child’s father.

    “I have no feelings that she’s gone, she may be hurt,” said Valentine’s mother, Charity Price.
    Medlock said police are keeping tab on Reginald McDowell.

    “He has left the area, but we know where he is, believe me, we check on him frequently to make sure we know where he is,” Medlock said.

    WHERE IS META VALENTINE? FAMILY OF MISSING FAYETTEVILLE WOMAN WAITS A YEAR LATER
    A year ago this Friday was the last time 42-year-old Meta Valentine's family heard from her.

    "She sent me a message that said she loved me chipmunk, and I messaged her back telling her I loved her too," said her son De'Mario.

    For the past year, he's clung to his faith.

    "I know God never puts you through anything you can't handle," he offered.

    Valentine was reported missing on Oct. 29, 2014 after church members say she failed to show up at a function. Valentine was the church secretary at Fayetteville's Deliverance and Praise Church of Worship.
