    NC - Melanie Ramsey Burleson, 37, McDowell County. 22 February 2016

    Melanie Nichole Ramsey Burleson


    Investigation into missing McDowell County Woman

    McDowell County, North Carolina -

    Investigators in McDowell County are working to locate a missing woman.

    Authorities say Melanie Nichole Ramsey Burleson, 37, was reported missing Friday evening but will not say if her disappearance is suspicious or not, because they do not have enough

    information at this point.

    They are continuing to look into multiple scenarios; one being that she went to check herself into a drug rehab facility out of state. Another theory is that she is with a convicted felon, as

    the family believes.

    Family members say this is out of character for the 37-year-old mother of two to be out of contact.

    Mother Elaine Reel says she last spoke with her daughter last Monday on the phone and also spoke with a man by the name of Walter Mitchell, whom she believes Melanie is with. Reel

    says her daughter sounded scared.

    "She told me that she wanted to come off of all her medications and everything and that in a couple of days that she would be fine, and she would come back," Reel said. "And then Walt

    got on the phone and he kept saying you know I'd never hurt your daughter."

    The sheriff's office says at this point they are looking into all tips, but have yet to name any suspects.

    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."

    "They were last seen together at someone’s house having a fight,” said Reel. “I heard she got beaten up really bad and she doesn’t want her family to see her like that. It just scares me because it’s not like my daughter to be with someone like that at all.”

    Authorities said over the weekend, the pair was believed to have been spotted in Yancey County. Deputies with Yancey County searched the area but came up empty.

    (...)

    Burleson (...) could be driving a 2012 red Kia Soul with N.C. license plate DBJ-4167.

    Mitchell is 45-years-old and has an address of 239 John Swofford Road in Nebo. A check of his criminal history yielded multiple convictions of assault on a female, breaking and entering, larceny and communicating threats.

    He spent several years in prison after being convicted of accessory after the fact in a murder and kidnapping case. He is currently listed as a probation absconder on the N.C. Department of Public Safety website.

    Detectives say Burleson was traveling with Mitchell voluntarily.
