Police search Cape woods for evidence of missing woman
WEST BARNSTABLE, Mass. -- Police searched a wooded area in West Barnstable for evidence relating to the disappearance of a Nantucket woman.
Trudie Hall, 23, has been missing for nearly two weeks. She left Nantucket July 27 to go to a doctor’s visit in Barnstable, according to her mother.
State and Barnstable police were searching along Route 6 off a service road Monday morning, and have confirmed the search is related to Hall's disappearance.
"This is too close to home. This is pretty scary, and it's the unknown. Every time you read the paper somebody has said something different, or omitted something, and it's like, what's happening? Where is she? " said Carol Lavallee, a neighbor.
People who live in the area received phone calls warning them that search crews would be investigating the area off of Route 6.
"She is not doing this of her own will. Whoever is holding my daughter, please let her come home, and whatever you want us to do, money or anything, just call us, just let her go," said Vivienne Walker, the missing woman's mother.
Thursday, police searched a home in Centerville for evidence, and questioned homeowner Quoizel Wilson in relation to the crime. Last weekend, officers began their search for Hall by looking in the area near Independence Park and the woods near a commuter lot. Days later, they reportedly found Hall's rental car with blood inside.
"Just pray for her safety, and pray that we find her alive," said Walker.
Walker has a scheduled meeting with authorities on Tueday, and hopes to obtain more information on the disappearance of her daughter.
