The search continues for a missing 71-year-old woman from Mays Landing and her 5-year-old great-granddaughter who have not been seen or heard from since Christmas. Searching for any kind of answers, family members are now retracing their steps in central Virginia.

71-year-old Barbara Briley, from Mays Landing, and her 5-year-old great-granddaughter LaMyra have been missing since Christmas weekend. They were last seen at an Exxon station off of I-95 in Ruther Glen, VA. The pair were on their way to visit family members in North Carolina for Christmas. WRIC-TV in Richmond reports a clerk at the Exxon station says Briley was asking for directions and left the parking lot shortly after 6PM Christmas Eve.

Briley’s niece Marcella Rorie, tells WRIC-TV,

“Basically what I was doing is checking to see if there are any skid marks, anything on the side of the road that looked as if a vehicle had been distressed or gone down an embankment or anything of that nature. We’ve been handing out fliers, we’ve been stopping at Exxon stations."


Anyone with any type of information is asked to contact police immediately.
