    According to Veromi:

    Joan may have had the name Huffman - (married? / maiden?)

    Has had residences in Salem, Hardy & Roanoke, VA

    http://www.courts.state.va.us/caseinfo/home.html
    According to Roanoke City Circuit Court records - she was divorced in 2003 = appears her maiden name was Hoffman according to these records.

    Roanoke County Police are asking you to keep an eye out for a Salem woman who's been missing for about three weeks.

    The last time Joan Cook's family saw her was on January 24th.

    The 45-year-old was wearing a red sweater and blue jeans.

    A family member says she has been on anti-depressent medicine for years.

    They also say for her to wander away, especially from her seven-year-old daughter, is very uncharacteristic.

    You can call Roanoke County Police at 777-8636 if you see Cook.

    Roanoke County authorities are asking for help finding a woman who was last seen in January.

    Joan Renee Cook, 45, left her home the evening of Jan. 24, according to Roanoke County Detective J.D. Clark. She was reported missing Jan. 31.

    Clark said the woman was last seen wearing a red sweater, blue jeans, Timberland shoes and a black jacket. Cook is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds.

    She was reported to have left her home on foot, Clark said. Cook lives in "the Salem part of Roanoke County," said Clark, who declined to be more specific.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Roanoke County Police at 777-8636
    .


    She has a 7 year old? And it took a week before she was even reported missing? And we're just now hearing about it on the news?

    WTH???

    I haven't been on here in a while, I just couldn't take the agony of Aveion's and Morgan's discoveries and I had to take a break from all the heartbreak. I just read this about Joan and I was wondering the same thing, MB, why wasn't this on the news as soon as she was reported missing, and why, if she disappeared on the 24th that she wasn't reported missing until the 31st? Why are we having so many women missing in our area so close together? Kelly Catalano from Chester, Jill Edmonds from Richmond, Eleanor Elizabeth Salotto from Lynchburg and now Joan Cook from Roanoke. Lynchburg and Roanoke are at my back door, so to speak, and I can't understand women disappearing from our area like this. What in the world is happening?

    This is EXACTLY what was going through my head when I saw this thread. What's up with all the women missing so close together in time as well as area? I'm not from that region of the country, but...wow.
    This is all my opinion, which is subject to change with more information, if the wind changes direction, or if I wake up in a different mood...

    Yes I don't understand it as well...

    Also the woman that was found in the shallow grave in Lynchburg a couple months ago. I cannot remember what her name was. No one has been charged in her murder.

    And we have the case of Childs and Metzler who were shot to death that hasn't been solved.

    And this man is missing from roughly the same area as Kelly & Jill:
    Michael Lesly Green was last seen on the morning of Dec. 19 at his home in the 1400 block of Baylors Lane in Petersburg. He is 27, black, is 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 220 pounds, has a medium-brown complexion, a moustache and a goatee. Anyone with information about Green's whereabouts is asked to call Petersburg Crime Solvers at 861-1212.

    Thank you. I still don't understand why it was a week later that she was reported missing? Was the 7 year old at home when she was last seen? Did Joan have neighbors? Were they suspicious when they didn't see her for a week? If this was uncharacteristic for her and she would not leave her child, then it sounds like foul play to me. Is there a husband? Boyfriend? I don't understand why there isn't any more information given out to the public when people go missing. The public can help a lot if we're just informed more.

    Welcome to WS sister in law! We are glad you are here and thank you for providing some clarity regarding Ms. Cook's situation. I commend her ex husband for taking care of their daughter and being a responsible parent!

    I hope you don't mind, but if you can maybe answer a few questions that could help us in helping LE to locate your sister in law.

    Has Ms. Cook displayed this kind of behavior before? (leaving for any length of time)
    Do you believe Ms. Cook to be in the company of this person she was having an affair with?
    Is it known by the family who this person is? (Remember you can't name names, unless they have been made public through media reports or by LE).
    Did anyone see Ms. Cook get into a vehicle - or is it believed she walked somewhere to meet someone?
    Was Ms. Cook believed to be under the influence when she left the residence?

    Is there going to be a search of the surrounding area to make sure she didn't wander off somewhere if she was intoxicated? I am local and would be more than willing to help participate in any organized search.

    btw:

    A family member says she has been on anti-depressent medicine for years.

    They also say for her to wander away, especially from her seven-year-old daughter, is very uncharacteristic.
    Seems we have a difference of opinion among family members.

    from that link:


    Circumstances of Disappearance: She was last seen in Salem, VA at a residence on Elderwood Rd. She left that residence on foot at around 11pm. The last contact with her was a text message received at 5am on January 25th. At that time, according to cell phone records, she was about 6 miles away on the 3rd Salem exit going South on I-81 in VA.
