Search Called Off For Missing Pregnant Woman In Fayetteville
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – Police cancelled their search Friday night for a pregnant Fayetteville woman who went missing after not showing up to a local hospital to have her labor induced.
Brandi Wade, 28, is overdue in a pregnancy of twins. She was scheduled to have labor induced at a local hospital Friday morning, according to the Fayetteville Police Department.
Wade never showed up to the hospital and went missing, police said early Friday night. Fayetteville police issued a missing person notice, but withdrew it later the same night.
A Facebook user in Fayetteville using the name “Brandie A. Wade” stated Friday night on her profile she is O.K.
“That report on me better get canceled fast,” a post on the profile from Friday night reads. “I am fine! I will contact y’all when I’m ready! Leave me alone.”
Fayetteville police said the woman visited a friend in western Fayetteville Thursday night and told the friend and her husband she had a babysitting job on Betty Jo Drive from 7 to 11 p.m. Thursday.
The woman texted her friend at 1 a.m. to say the parent of the child she was supposed to babysit was running late and that her own phone was running out of battery charge. No one reported hearing from her after that, police said.
Neither her husband or her friend knew the identity of the person who Wade was supposed to babysit. She never returned home, and she is not in any area hospitals, according to the Fayetteville Police Department’s missing person report.
