Search for missing woman continues

October 31, 2002

Valdosta - South Georgia investigators continue to search for a woman and her child, missing since October 12th.

Twenty-six year old Paula Wade was last seen leaving her job at Sam's Club in Valdosta. When she didn't arrive at work for the next few days, her co-workers reported her missing to police. Since then, investigators have conducted an extensive search for Wade and her three-year-old son, Brandon, but with no luck.

They were also unable to locate Wade's roommate and ex-boyfriend, Marcus Burroughs, for questioning, but later found him in the Lowndes County jail for giving a false name and theft by taking.

"We still have a feeling she might be out there on her own somewhere, but we do have some indications of foul play," said Sgt. Steve Owens.

Wade was scheduled to move to Orlando with her father last week, but didn't show up.

If you have seen or have any information on Paula and Brandon Wade, please call Valdosta Detectives at 229-293-3091.
