DATE: 2/4/16 – The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information helping authorities find Sara, according to WRAL.
Original story: Sara Nicole Graham, 18, from N.C., has been missing since Feb. 4, 2015. Sara left her home in the 4000 block of Centerville Church Road in Fairmont about 6:30 a.m. for work at a Walmart store in Pembroke, Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey has said. Sara had moved in with her father and stepfather who both worked for the sheriff’s department. She was driving a van registered to her father, Hubert Graham. Hubert, is a 16 year veteran of the sheriff’s department. The van was found on McDonald Road with the doors locked but Sara never showed up for work. According to the Charley Project “It was parked in a wheat field off east McDonald Road between Chicken Road and Centerville Church Road, several feet off the road, with no indications that a struggle had taken place.”
The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office is grateful for your assistance in publicizing Sara Graham’s disappearance on social media, fliers, and word of mouth. I know citizens are eager to know more about our investigation. Please understand that publicly sharing specific details of our case could be harmful to the integrity of our investigation and would not be in the best interest of our efforts to find Sara. RCSO detectives, in conjunction with the FBI, are working day and night on this case and we won’t stop until we find her.
Former Deputy Connie Graham has been terminated from her employment as a deputy sheriff as of March 19, 2015. Her termination is a personnel matter.
Thank you to all for your understanding to assist us with this investigation. I will release more about this ongoing investigation as soon as I am able. Again, thank you all for your concern for Sara, her family, and for your understanding about protecting details of our investigation.
