    The Alamance County Sheriff's Department is still searching for a 39-year-old woman who hasn't been seen since mid-February, although her car was found last Friday.

    Jana Michelle Morton's white Dodge Intrepid was found in the parking lot of Food Lion on South Main Street in Graham, and investigators obtained a warrant to search the vehicle.

    "As soon as we got our hands on the car, we executed a search warrant in the hopes that it would lead us to where she is," said Alamance County Sheriff's Capt. Robert Wilborn.

    However, the search didn't provide any leads in the case, Wilborn said.

    Morton's daughter reported her missing Feb. 22, although Morton has been missing since Feb. 13.

    and

    Morton is white. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 112 pounds. Her hair is brown. Her eyes are hazel. She was last seen wearing a tie-dyed shirt and blue jeans.

    Investigators interview inmate in case of missing woman

    On March 2, sheriff's department investigators learned that Foust allegedly "spontaneously uttered admission to having possession and control of Jana Michelle Morton's vehicle," states a search warrant obtained that same day.

    In that warrant, investigators were seeking Foust's DNA by means of a "saliva/bucal swab."

    The sheriff's department obtained a search warrant on March 3 in order to seize all of Foust's personal property stored at the jail, including "any undergarments Foust may be allowed to maintain control of that were not stored in his personal belongings."

    Charles Morton, who is raising his stepdaughter and a 7-year-old son that he and Jana Morton had while they were married, said that his ex-wife had some problems in the past.

    They married in 1999. It wasn't until five years later, when Charles Morton got sick with a virus that resulted in him getting his left leg amputated, that Jana Morton started struggling, he said.

    "She fell apart," he said. "I don't know what happened."

    He said she got involved in drugs.

    "She was trying to straighten up," Charles Morton said.

    Four days before she disappeared, Jana Morton had just finished serving less than two months at North Piedmont Correctional Center for Women. Morton had been placed on probation after she was convicted on drug paraphernalia and attempted shoplifting charges in May 2008. That probation was revoked when she was convicted of misdemeanor larceny and shoplifting in August 2008.

    "She was a good person," Charles Morton said. "She just got with the wrong crowd. She knew she needed help."

    When Charles Morton heard that Jana Morton's Dodge Intrepid was found, he knew something was wrong.

    "I knew she wouldn't give up that car. That was all she had. I knew right then something wasn't right," he said. "... She don't deserve to be laying out there in the woods like discarded trash like nobody cares about her. She was loved."

    ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — Law enforcement is still trying to find out what happened to an Alamance County mother of two almost two years ago.

    Jana Michelle Morton vanished from her home in Snow camp on Feb. 13, 2009. Michelle was supposed to stay the weekend with her mother, Sherry Cloninger, in Caswell County, but she never made it.

    "I knew instantly. There was not a doubt in my mind something bad had happened. I knew by (Feb.) 18 something happened. It's her daughter's birthday. She doesn't ever miss birthdays," Cloninger said.

    Missing person's case hits two-year mark

    Sherry Cloninger just wants to bring her daughter home.

    Tuesday marks two years since Cloninger’s 39-year-old daughter Jana “Michelle” Morton was reported missing to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Department. At this point, authorities don’t think Morton will be found alive.

    [snip]

    Investigators continue to seek information about the case. Now that Foust, who was convicted of first-degree rape in August in an unrelated case, is in prison serving a minimum of 40 years, authorities are hopeful someone will come forward with information about Morton’s disappearance.

    [snip]

    A receipt to McDonald’s found inside Morton’s car, led authorities to the McDonald’s on North Church Street where they reviewed surveillance tape of Foust alone in the Dodge Intrepid on Feb. 20. They also tested items found in the car — a pink sheet, a floral comforter, a pillow case and a rubber mat — that all had blood stains on them.

    Test results indicate it is Morton’s blood.

    “It’s just not enough blood that you can say someone died as a result of that blood loss,” Felts said.

    According to Sheriff Terry Johnson, Foust has spent a large portion of his life in prison.
    “Let’s say he is not a stranger to the criminal justice system,” said the Sheriff.

    Robert Mitchell Foust, 52, is now serving a minimum of 40 years in prison on a first-degree rape conviction, and was linked to the Morton case after authorities found a letter addressed to him as well as a receipt to the McDonald’s on Graham-Hopedale Road in Morton’s Dodge Intrepid, which was found in the Food Lion parking lot in Graham about two weeks after she disappeared.

    snip...
    Foust’s criminal record dates back to 1977. In addition to larceny, shoplifting, motor vehicle break-ins and drug offenses, Foust has been convicted of second-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, assault on a female and false imprisonment, according to the N.C. Department of Correction.

    Foust’s murder conviction was in 1987 in Randolph County. He had a maximum sentence of 40 years but served less than 13 years.
