    Still missing

    18 March 08

    It's been almost three weeks now since 82-year-old Virginia Ratliff of Brookhaven disappeared. Since then the search for her has not turned up any clues on her whereabouts, or what may have happened to her.

    Monday, St. Patrick's Day, marked Charles and Virginia Ratliff's 62nd wedding anniversary. This year was the first they spent apart.

    Virginia missing since Feburary 28th, while Charles was hospitalized in at the V.A. hospital in Jackson.

    "I cried a lot," says Charles Ratliff. "We dressed alike, played golf together, played tennis together."

    Investigators suspect Virginia Ratliff may have tried to drive to Jackson on February 28 to see her husband, who was being treated at the V.A. Medical Center. He fears his wife may have gotten lost.

    There were even signs left behind at the Ratliff home that she had packed items before she left.

    "I'm missing my slippers, I'm missing my shaver, my coat," he said. "Both of us had an L.L. Bean coat; she must have been bringing them up to me -- or was trying to, at least. She hadn't driven too much in the last year or so."

    Virginia Ratliff suffered from memory loss.

    Police are asking everyone to be on the lookout for Virginia Ratliff or her car: a white, four-door 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis with tag number 987 LIH. There is a navy Seabees tag on the front of the car, and two yellow veterans magnets on the back.

    27 March 08

    Brookhaven Police Chief Pap Henderson said the search for missing Brookhaven woman Virginia Ratliff is still in full swing, and that officials need the help of the public now as much as ever. "We're asking everyone to continue to help," he said. "We're only human, and we're hoping there will be a break in this case soon."

    Henderson said a lake along highway 51 was searched last week, but that Wildlife Game and Fisheries officials were unable to find anything in the water. He said the investigation continues not only in Lincoln County but in the surrounding areas as well.

    One year missing

    Still no sign of elderly woman one year after she went missing.

    "If I could I would like to get her back," Charles Ratliff said.

    The pain of not knowing where his wife is still haunts Charles Ratliff one year after she went missing.

    On February 28th, 2008, 82-year-old Virginia Ratliff left their home in Brookhaven to visit Charles at the VA hospital in Jackson but she never made it.

    For the past 62 years, the two were inseparable. They traveled, played sports, and went to church together.

    "What do you miss most about Mrs. Ratliff?, WLBT asked.

    "Her sleeping beside me," Ratliff said.

    Missing Brookhaven woman honored during husband's funeral

    CLINTON, MS (WLBT) It's been almost two and a half years since Virginia Ratliff disappeared from her Brookhaven home.

    Years that remained a mystery to her family.

    But now her husband has died, and family members took the time to honor them both.

    This July fourth Caby Bryne gazes at the American flag outside his Clinton home remembering the patriotic brother-in-law Charles Ratliff who gave it to him.

    The World War II veteran died Tuesday at the V.A. Center in Jackson.

    "Being a Fourth of July weekend it's almost like he planned it," said Bryne.

    But there isn't a day that goes by that Bryne doesn't think of his sister Virginia Ratliff.

    No one has seen the 83-year-old since she disappeared from her Brookhaven home February 28th of 2008.

    On that day she was returning to Jackson to see her husband at the V.A.
