    RIGHT NOW: CFD & CMPD boats are currently canvassing the water near Pier 49 at Lake Wylie after finding car that belongs to 39-year-old Vatsla Watkins. Authorities say Watkins, the wife of former Mecklenburg County GOP chair Curtis Watkins, disappeared Monday.

    So, this is strictly a marina, not a waterfront shopping area or anything, right? Do we have her home address or just the city of Charlotte?
    MOO

    ETA: Should have looked. Here is some info on the Marina. Also, some good photos of the area here. Pier 49

    "Since 1989 Pier 49 Marina has been family owned and operated and has been the # 1 Lake Wylie marina since its inception. With over 130 covered and uncovered slips Pier 49 is the place to store your boat for quick and effortless fun on the water!"

    Pier 49 is family run marina. Not a retail outfit.

    Watkins’ car has now been towed from scene. I just saw 4 people in the parking lot hugging one another and crying.

    MISSING WOMAN: Crews search Lake Wylie after finding missing woman's car in marina parking lot

    [...]

    A marina worker told Channel 9 the car has probably been there since Monday. The worker said they noticed it after reports surfaced Thursday about Watkins, and they called police just before 9 a.m. Friday.

    Police and fire officials brought boats to search the lake about 20 yards from the shore and under the Buster Boyd Bridge.

    The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department helicopter was brought in to search from the air.

    Although CMPD and CFD are searching Lake Wylie this is not a recovery effort yet, officers say Watkins could have gotten in a car with someone else. All possibilities are on the table

    I feel like this is going to be a heartbreaking end for this beautiful woman.
    I hope I'm wrong with this one. Seems like a very sweet family and hope they won't be dealing with tragedy.

    Replying to myself, but it seems like a weird place to park if you were going to walk into the lake.

    When was her last cell phone conversation? On Monday morning? Who did she talk to last (on her cell phone) and when?

    I want to know who reported her missing. It just says police spoke with her "family". Do they mean her husband and small child? Or were there other family members there as well?
