    Sounds like foul play.

    Here's an article with more information. She seems like such a nice lady. Her family is offering a $50,000 reward. It seems this so-called boyfriend/I don't really know her contractor dude is lying about alot. Then to say she was chopping wood to relieve stress? Hope something breaks real soon.

    Still no leads in Prince's disappearance

    Published January 20, 2006

    Nearly three weeks after she disappeared, Temple Terrace police still have no solid information on the whereabouts of 59-year-old Sandra Prince.

    TEMPLE TERRACE - Three weeks into Sandra Prince's disappearance, Temple Terrace police still have no solid leads as to where the 59-year-old social worker could be. Not even after her family put up a $50,000 reward for information.

    "We are so anxious just to get an inkling of what has happened," said her cousin Jim Moore, 68, in town Friday from North Carolina on his second trip since Prince vanished.

    She was last spotted by a co-worker the Friday before New Year's Eve at the Agency for Community Treatment Services, a substance abuse treatment program she co-founded 30 years ago.

    The following Tuesday, a concerned neighbor reported her missing from her Theresa Arbor home. Her back door was unlocked, her car was in the garage and her cell phone still inside the house. There were no signs of a struggle. It was as if she had walked out the back door and into thin air.

    Moore said Prince is not the kind of person to take off on a whim.

    From this January 4th article:
    http://www.tampabays10.com/news/news.aspx?storyid=24194





    Temple Terrace police spokeswoman Paula MacDonald said the agency is seeking information from anyone who may have seen Prince or her car - a white 1994 Buick Park Avenue four-door with a Florida State University specialty license plate reading "SHP" - on or near the Interstate 75 corridor over the New Year's weekend. The car was parked in Prince's two-car garage on Tuesday, when police first received notice from a worried neighbor that Prince had not been seen recently.

    MacDonald said it isn't clear whether Prince owns a second vehicle. Public property records were not conclusive either.

    Investigators want to know, "if she did go and came back or if she ever went at all," MacDonald said. The spokeswoman said she did not know specifically where Prince may have gone or for what purpose.
    AND

    Police said Prince is 5-feet-6 with brown hair and brown eyes. Born in Virginia and raised in North Carolina, Prince speaks with a thick Southern accent, a colleague said.

    Lots of background information about her here. Lots of personal info. She was dating someone in Sumpter County (which no one met), and she recently switched from jeans and tshirts to dressing up more.... possibly dating? Was a landlord, drug councillor and enigma!


    From this article, dated today:
    http://www.tampabays10.com/news/news.aspx?storyid=24194



    Investigators say Sandra’s home was in meticulous condition and her car was found in the garage, however, the back door of her house was open.
    AND

    Authorities have searched for Sandra locally, as well as in Sumpter County where she owns property. As they continue to look for her, her family is offering a 50-thousand-dollar reward. Anyone with information should call Temple Terrace Police.
    Ok this is what I got out of the various news articles:

    Name: Sandra Hamby Prince
    Address: 11507 Moffat Place, Temple Terrace, Florida
    Race: White
    Sex: Female
    Height: 5'6"
    Hair: Brown
    Eyes: Brown
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Speaks with a thick southern accent
    Possibly had driven to North Florida or Sumptner County.

    Automobile in garage, handbag/purse missing.

    Question: Was the door found "open" or "unlocked"



    As an aside:

    I found lots of sites where the multiple news stories about this missing woman were referenced.

    What I find odd is that there is NO listing at the National Center for Missing Adults, even though the family has put up a $50000 reward and wants to keep the story "in the public eye".

    Police: Man used missing woman's ATM

    February 1, 2006

    Police have released images captured at area banks showing a man accessing Sandra Prince's account.
    Investigators have released video of a man they say has withdrawn money from Sandra Prince's bank accounts several times since she went missing Dec. 30.

    Video images captured at ATM machines in Tampa and Temple Terrace show a white male in a mask leaning from the driver's side window of a car to withdraw cash from Prince's accounts.

    Temple Terrace police describe the man as having a large, stocky build, dark hair on his arms wearing no visible rings, jewelry or tattoos.

    Prince, 59, was last seen Dec. 30 at the Agency for Community Treatment Services, Inc., where she'd worked about 30 years as a social worker.

    The video clips indicate the man was driving a mid-sized, light-colored, 4-door American-made vehicle. In a color video, he held a green cap or cover of some kind to his face. He might also have been wearing a neck brace or collar that moves stiffly behind him, according to some of the black and white still photos police obtained.

    The new images, accessible online at, are the first major break in Prince's disappearance.

    "It's certainly interesting that this person has obviously been able to access her card and her accounts," Temple Terrace Police spokeswoman Paula MacDonald said.

    I wonder if that is the man she had been seeing? It will be hard to figure out who the man is at the bank. Without a picture of his face how will they ever be able to tell? Wonder how much money she had in the bank and how much he got altogether.

    This guy must have made her give him the pin number to her card. It's doubtful that she is still alive. If her car was still at home and there was no sign of a struggle then someone must have held a gun on her to get her to leave with him or she knew the guy well enough to leave with him maybe thinking they were going out to dinner or somewhere.

    I hope they catch that guy. It must have been all about money.

    Wow, I hope they get better video installed after this. I have seen better quality webcam video. Whats the point of having video if the quality is so poor as to make it useless, or nearly useless.
