    http://www2.tricities.com/tri/news/l...eared_d/36582/

    30 Nov 09

    A woman who spent much of her childhood in the Tri-Cities is now the subject of a massive search in North Carolina. The Seven Devils (N.C.) Police Department is looking for Deana Elizabeth Schermerhorn, 41. According to police, she was last seen by family members on November 8th at her home in Seven Devils.

    and

    Seven Devils police want to talk to Schermerhorn’s husband about her disappearance.

    “Schermerhorn may be in the company of Christopher Warren Meade driving a maroon 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada four door SUV, North Carolina registration YXR4449,“ a police press release said.

    However, Meade remains missing.

    “He is now a missing person,“ Assistant Chief Bobby Powell said.

    and

    “He said that, ‘Daddy was playing with sticky tape with mommy and put her in a red and white blanket and drug her and put brush over here,‘“ Whittemore said about her nephew Gabe’s conversation with a child psychiatrist. “He says, ‘I ain’t never going to see mommy no more.‘“

    According to Whittemore, Meade had a history of abusing her sister. In fact, the last time she saw her sister, she had two black eyes, Whittemore said.

    jesus, what is it with these guys?? I feel like I'm hearing about a woman murdered by her husband at least once a week now. You don't have to kill her - you can always get a divorce!
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Wow....I can only ask...what have they been doing since Nov 7th??

    what sort of "reporter" wrote this mess of a story??

    very unclear...why no picture of the husband?? very odd story

    does not sound "good" at all for this poor woman

    just a thought...when you see your sister with "2 black eyes" why no attempt to intervene, provide a safe place, help her get away, or "drop a dime" on the hubby or ??

    My pet peeve w/ missing persons stories is NO PICTURES of victim, POI, suspect - whoever!!

    How the heck can anybody look for someone they don't know if they don't at least have an idea of what they look like??!!

    It happens a *lot*.

    I'm confused. Is Meade this woman's husband and the person LE wants to speak to? And he's also missing now? Why did they wait so long to get this story out when they already suspect she's deceased? Jeez!

    The reporting on this story is exceptionally poor.

    I agree..the reporting on this is really confusing.

    From what I did understand of this story though, it's incredibly sad. I hope that they find Deana alive and well, although I understand that probably isn't going to happen. I do, however, pray she gets justice.

    I *think* from reading, the two were in a relationship that produced a son, although last names different? What the little boy said does NOT sound good! And the story IS horribly written. Sometimes depending on what paragraph i read, i felt like they were BOTH suspected of something...just the wording...very odd...

    I am really frustrated with the media reports in all missing children/persons cases. Why not just use straight forward language and state the facts? Lives are on the line and these reporters cannot write a cohesive story!!!!

    This little POS coward needs to be found and made to answer to whatever his actions were. This little boy would not make up a story like that, so it did happen, IMO.

    I am so sick of all of the murdering going on and daily hearing of a missing child who was not being watched closely enough. I am sick of POS's murdering children. And I am sick of men and women murdering each other. FGS, just leave and don't look back, but do not resort to murder.

    I hope Deana is located.

    Can't find any updates. I hope she's ok - she's just a little bitty thing. Doesn't sound good, though.

    There's clearly a reason LE believes she is no longer alive. I hope they catch this POS soon.

    Could it be the statements the son made to the psychologist? They need to find that Meade guy.

    I'm sure that's a huge part of it. Reminds me of the Jesse Davis/Bobby Lee Cutts case. These men just make me so sick.

    The article I posted earlier stated that LE knows that Meade has been "active" since Deana went missing. I sure hope they're closing in on him.
