Missing Woman Update

 

Allison Romedy

Allison Romedy has not been seen since she tucked her ten-year-old daughter into bed on February 28. Since we last spoke with the family a few months ago, they're losing faith that Allison will be found alive. Now they just want to find her body and bring her home.

Since Romedy was last seen, hundreds have scoured the woods for her. The family has handed out flyers and made appeals on TV for her safe return.

In June, the family took another blow. Allison' son Michael was killed in a car wreck. The family put the obituary notice in papers around the country. When Allison didn't come home, they knew.

"We felt like that was our answer," said Allison's sister, Jennifer Johnston. "That was one form of closure for us, that she was not out there. She would have come home."

Now the family just wants to bury her next to her son.

"There's a place for her right beside him and that's what we want to see happen, see her brought home," said Jennifer.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been actively working on the case, but the family will not talk about any suspects. They just want to know what happened.

As Jennifer says, "Nothing is worse than not knowing. Nothing is worse than the torment we've been through imagining different things."

If you have any information about what happened to Allison Romedy, call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020. Your call will remain anonymous.
