    This story was on my local news tonight. A 23 y/o girl, daughter of a police chief went missing from a local tavern. Hope I put it in the correct place. Caught my attention since I have been at the tavern/restaurant and have children close to the same age as this young lady.

    Additional information.....

    "A security camera is pointed at the lot where Hamilton's car was found. Video from the camera has been turned over to police, the manager said. Police have also obtained purchase receipts from the bar at the time Hamilton was there."

    I know she was employed at one point in time at Hooters, I believe last year going by a pic on fb. Makes you wonder if somebody may have became infatuated? Stalker? Any word on any searches yet? I would love to try and go help. I'm dying to know cell phone pings and everything.

    Police chief’s daughter missing; last seen in Plaza Midwood


    Charlotte-Mecklenburg police continued their search Friday for a 23-year-old woman who has been missing since being seen early Wednesday morning at a restaurant in Plaza Midwood.

    Investigators returned Friday morning to the Arboretum-area apartment complex where Valerie Hamilton, daughter of Concord police Chief Merl Hamilton, lives. They had searched the same complex Thursday.

    Police also released a description of a man who was seen with Hamilton early Wednesday at the Thomas Street Tavern.

    “Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have been doing a fabulous job,” Merl Hamilton said at midday Friday. He declined to elaborate on what investigators had told him, but one officer told WCNC-TV, the Observer’s news partner, police had developed leads that caused them to be more concerned about Valerie Hamilton’s well-being.

    She was seen at Thomas Street Tavern, on Thomas Avenue at Central Avenue, between 12:30 and 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Her vehicle was found in the restaurant parking lot.

    Family members, friends and employers have not heard from her since.

    Hamilton is attending CPCC in hopes of becoming a teacher and works at a Charlotte restaurant.

    Police say Hamilton is 5 feet 3 and 125 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Police also say she has a distinctive tattoo on the back of her neck – three stars in a horizontal design.

    By checking video surveillance cameras at the restaurant, police were able to provide a description of the man who was with Hamilton. They say he was a light-skinned white male. His hair was short and dark, with some white in it. He was clean-shaven, about 5 feet 10 and 165 pounds. He was wearing jeans and a T-shirt and did not have any visible tattoos or earrings.

    He was in his mid to late 30s with no facial hair.

    Anyone with information in the case is asked to call 911 or contact a CMPD detective, 704-432-TIPS. Or information can be left with Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.

    "A manager at Thomas Street Tavern Friday morning told WBTV.com Hamilton's car was still in the parking lot after she vanished. The manager said her purse and identification were left in the vehicle."

    "A security camera is pointed at the lot where Hamilton's car was found. Video from the camera has been turned over to police, the manager said. Police have also obtained purchase receipts from the bar at the time Hamilton was there."

    Ashley Rose is from Andrews, missing from Murphy, which are both about 200+ miles west of Charlotte, closer to Tennessee.

    Additional reports.....

    Hamilton was last seen with a "light skinned white male with short dark hair with some gray in it," police told WBTV.

    "Just a regular guy, no one knew who he was, so I'm assuming that he's not from the neighborhood," said Katie Cannon, manager of Thomas Street Tavern.

    "Police said they are unsure if Hamilton knew the man. Friends who were at the bar with Hamilton said it appeared that she knew the man, but said they were not familiar with him."

    "On Friday, investigators began searching the area around Hamilton’s apartment complex, including a nearby wooded area. Police said they have reason to believe Hamilton went to her apartment after leaving the tavern. They didn't find any signs of foul play inside, they said, but are still deeply concerned."

    Glad the police have the security camera footage. Maybe it will show the person who Valerie spent time with that evening. Maybe they will show his pic on the local media?

    She worked at a Hooters, apparently, so maybe a regular customer?

    Also, not too far from where Kyle Fleischmann went missing, though I know they are different circumstances...
