Halifax County authorities joined Campbell County Sheriff’s investigators and Virginia State Police on Tuesday afternoon as law enforcement officers searched a Campbell County property in hopes of finding clues to the whereabouts of 36-year-old Wendy Dawn Beadles Francis.
Francis, a Nathalie resident, has been missing since June of last year and was last seen in Brookneal, according to authorities.
On Tuesday, authorities were searching a property located between Brookneal and Rustburg, Sheriff Fred Clark said.
“We’re hoping to find any clues or information that will lead us to locating Wendy Francis,” the sheriff added.
Authorities said they were following up on a lead they received that Francis had friends in Brookneal and most likely stayed there after she left her home in June.
Law enforcement officers declined to comment on specific details of the tip that led them to search the Campbell County property Tuesday afternoon.
Francis is a white female, five-foot four-inches tall, weighing 120 pounds.
At the time she was reported missing, Francis had brown hair and blues eyes. A tattoo of a scorpion can be found on the back of her neck.
Authorities said Francis isn’t wanted on any charges and does not have any medical conditions.
Anyone with information concerning Francis’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-4273.
