It's also called Buster Boyd Bridge. Welcome to Charlotte, NC, where everything has two names.
I am not sure if I am allowed to post a link but Vatsla has a sewing blog and she posted about having her second child and that 2018 had been a difficult year. There are beautiful photos of clothing that she makes for herself and her daughter.
I reviewed the rules again and am pretty certain I can link to the blog. What a beautiful talented lady. Fashion Behind The Seams.
It’s been years since I was on Lake Wylie, but isn’t it a mud bottom lake?
Hello everyone, thank you for bringing so much attention to Vatsla. She is my very old friend and I am devastated over her being missing. I've only seen her once last year and we haven't really kept in contact. We both have a lot going on in our lives, with our children and just never made the time to meet up. I am not sure why her husband hasn't posted anything on facebook or even contacted any of her friends. I wouldn't suspect him doing something to her. I wonder if she jumped the bridge or was abducted by someone. I have posted all over facebook and had a TON of people constantly sharing. She's a gorgeous woman and if anyone saw her there's no way someone wouldn't recognize her. So please keep sharing and posting all over social media in hopes that if she is alive she is spotted.
Yes it is
This doesn't sound good. I hope I am wrong. What a beautiful lady.
MISSING WOMAN: Crews search Lake Wylie after finding missing woman's car in marina parking lot
Thanks! Remember boating on Wylie and especially T-Bones on the Lake.
I used to hate the mud squish between my toes - so I wouldn’t wade or walk out if self harm, I need to see what the bridge looks like now.
This lovely lady has been missing since Monday and I fear the worse.
So wish I didn't feel like this.
We're actually heading out on our boat shortly. If we can get close to the bridge, I'll take some pictures. My boyfriend just came across the bridge and said there is lots of activity and they're dragging the water.
I'm sure Pier 49, where her car was found, has cameras - there are a lot of expensive boats parked there. Makes me wonder if they have reviewed them and have reason to believe she's in the lake.
ETA - T-Bones closed in December after 24 years! A popular restaurant group bought it and it is being remodeled now and scheduled to re-open in the next couple of months.
I hope that is not the case

Going by instagram, he is around 1 year: ✂ Fashion Behind The Seams ✂️ on Instagram: “#tbt to when little man was born. Hard to believe he is almost one! #throwback #tbt #throwbackthursday #fashionbehindtheseams #mom…”
I guess since they are searching the water then theres a very low possibility she was visiting someone who owned a boat there... Hope this poor lady is found safe and she gets help dealing with the post partum depression.
It doesn't appear that she is Hindu. There's a picture of her and her husband's hand on an open bible. I believe I also read that they tutor(?) kids at their church.
Unfortunately when you're extremely depressed it takes over all rational thought. Hope is lost, which is so unbelievably sad.
