Updated: March 21, 2012

Charleston County officials have released the recording of the 911 call of a husband reporting his wife missing.

The audio is of 40-year-old Robert McCaffrey telling the operator his wife, 36-year-old Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey, was not at home when he returned to their Charleston County home Sunday from a visit to the Upstate over the weekend.

McCaffrey says he went to the Pickens County home to get some space and time away following an argument Saturday. When he returned home, he found his wife's wedding ring, car keys and checkbook on the counter along with a letter.

Travelers Rest police tell 7 On Your Side, Robert McCaffrey received a traffic ticket in the Upstate on the night his wife was last seen.

Officials continue their search for his missing wife.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office was looking into a report of buzzard activity near the McCaffrey home Wednesday.

Deputies searched a marsh, but say they didn’t find anything in connection to the case, however there was a dead dog in the area.

Major Jim Brady says investigators will continue to follow up on every lead.

Robert McCaffrey tells officials his wife left behind their two children between Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

Brady tells 7 On Your Side's sister station, WCBD-TV, the husband is not cooperating and has hired an attorney.

Posted: March 20, 2012

Charleston County Sheriff's investigators are searching for clues in the disappearance of a woman with ties to the Upstate.

In a news release, a sheriff's office spokesman said that deputies responded to a home on Limestone Drive in Charleston around 5:45 Sunday afternoon.

When they arrived, deputies spoke with 40-year-old Robert McCaffrey, who said that his wife, 36-year old Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey, was missing and had not been seen since 10 p.m. Saturday night. Deputies checked the home and the area and did not find any signs of her, but her car was still at the residence.

According to an incident report obtained from the sheriff's office, McCaffrey told deputies that he and his wife had gone to dinner Saturday afternoon. He stated that when they returned home later in the afternoon they became involved in an argument and he went to walk around the neighborhood because "he had a lot on his mind."

The report stated that McCaffrey told deputies that he returned home around 7:45 Saturday night and noticed his wife lying down on their bed. He stated that his wife ignored him and he decided to leave their home and go to their home on Freeman Bridge Road in Pickens County.

Charleston County officials say that McCaffrey told them that he left to go their home in Pickens County at 10 p.m. Saturday and when he returned at 6:30 Sunday morning, his wife was gone. He said that he noticed his wife's wedding ring, car keys and checkbook on the counter and she had left him a letter.

Deputies questioned McCaffrey about his last minute trip to Pickens County and were told that he was very emotional and distressed and wanted to get some space and time away. He further stated that they had been trying to save their marriage and it was "on the rocks." He added that he visits their Pickens County home "frequently" and for business, because he does a lot of traveling in the Upstate.

7 On Your Side has learned that McCaffrey received a traffic citation in Travelers Rest on Sunday morning for speeding.

Charleston County Sheriff's officials said that the couple's two children, ages 4 and 10 years old, were still at the residence when they arrived. The children were taken into protective custody as the investigation continues.

McCaffrey is described as a white female, approximately 5'2" and weighs 155 pounds. She has reddish, brown hair and blue eyes. If anyone has any information about McCaffrey's disappearance, they are asked to contact the Charleston County Sheriff's Office at (843) 202-1700.

Helen Broom Banach ·
This woman is my sister. Just to set the record straight, they do NOT have a home in Pickens County. My sister would NEVER have left her children alone. She would never have left period! Please pray for her.

Deputies Search For Clues Where Missing Woman Was Last Seen

Charleston County Sheriff's deputies were back at the home of a missing woman with ties to the Upstate Friday.

Major Jim Brady tells 7 On Your Side investigators were searching for new leads, tips and evidence at the last place Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey was seen.

McCaffrey was reported missing by her husband, Robert, on Sunday after he went to their Upstate home following an argument.

"There was nothing in the residence to suggest that there was a struggle or anything like that, but again, that doesn't mean there was nothing found in the residence that would help us in this investigation," Chief Deputy John Clark told WCBD-TV. "We are collecting evidence based on information we're getting from people we're talking to."

Officials say they have a person of interest in the disappearance and plan to make an arrest soon, but have not gone into any detail when charges will be filed.

Officials in Charleston County say they have identified a person of interest in the case of a missing Charleston woman and anticipate an arrest will be made soon.

WCSC-TV is reporting investigators haven’t yet released the name of the person of interest, but said they aren’t ruling anyone out, including her husband.

Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey was reported missing by her husband, Robert, on Sunday after he went to their Upstate home following an argument.

The Charleston Sheriff’s Office held a news conference Thursday and said they are working with the Traveler’s Rest Police Department to solve the case.

Robert McCaffrey was given a ticket early Sunday morning in Travelers Rest. He told officials he went to their Easley home to get some space after the argument.

Earlier Thursday, a judge gave custody of the couple’s children to Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey’s sister.

Investigators say Robert McCaffrey will have supervised visits with the 10 and 4-year olds.

According to McCaffrey's sisters, Robert wanted to hand over custody to the sisters as the search continues for his wife.

The children were taken into protective custody because they were found home alone when he says he returned to find his wife missing.

Officials continue their investigation.

Woman's disappearance is 'suspicious'

As they dined on cabbage rolls Saturday night in their West Ashley home, 37-year-old Gayle McCaffrey and her husband had an argument.

He told police he left to clear his head, and at some point in the evening she left too. Maybe for good.

A typed note left at the home said she wanted to be somewhere else, possibly with someone else.

Her checkbook, her phone, her Jeep, her wedding ring were left behind.

And her two children were left alone as they slept in their house on Limestone Boulevard.

But for McCaffrey's family, the story doesn't add up. It just doesn't sound like the devout Baptist who loved her children and her hometown and had just spent hours making her husband a St. Patrick's Day meal.

Leaving just doesn't make sense.

"None of us can grasp what's happening," said Kathy Gillespie, McCaffrey's aunt who said she was a guest for the dinner Saturday. "We have lots of fears, but we're praying she'll walk through the door."

McCaffrey's disappearance was labeled suspicious, which is standard when the circumstances surrounding a missing person are uncertain, according to Maj. Jim Brady of the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.

Bob McCaffrey, her 41-year-old husband, isn't cooperating with the authorities, but he hasn't been arrested, Brady said.

Attempts to contact Bob McCaffrey on Tuesday were not successful. He doesn't have an arrest record in South Carolina, according to the State Law Enforcement Division.

"We don't have anything more right now to go on," Brady said. "We have to look at all realms of possibility."

The couple's brick home was empty Tuesday. A Radio Flyer tricycle and a plastic wagon were abandoned in the yard. A dish full of cat food lay on the doorstep.

Their son, 4, and daughter, 10, remained in state custody. A judge will determine whether to release them to family members.

Dedicated parents

Relatives and neighbors described the McCaffreys, who have been married for 12 years, as dedicated parents. They churn homemade ice cream every other week and play with their children in the yard.

Gayle McCaffrey, a graduate of Southern Wesleyan University who works as director of facilities finance at The Citadel, is a longtime member of First Baptist Church in downtown Charleston. She sings and rings bells in the choir.

"She's well-loved, and everybody appreciates her," said the church's pastor, Marshall Blalock, who has known her for 15 years. "This isn't supposed to happen. It's just unimaginable for us as much as she loved her family."

She had recently purchased quilting materials, possibly to start a new hobby. She is known as easygoing, loving, slow to anger.

"You always knew which Gayle you were going to get," Gillespie said. "She was always the same person."

Bob McCaffrey, who was raised in New Jersey, would often cook breakfast, sometimes dinner. He would do the laundry and mop the floors.

Gayle McCaffrey focused on the children, helping the eldest do homework, taking them for play dates.

A skilled carpenter, Bob McCaffrey helped many of his neighbors with construction projects. He has installed wood floors, paneling, molding in their homes.

He collects art, especially beach scenes by local painter Jim Booth. He is a firearms enthusiast and likes to take target practice on a range.

"There's nobody on this street that he hasn't done something for," said a neighbor, who didn't want to be identified. "Bob is one of my favorite people."

Things going wrong

But he had encountered turbulence in recent months.

In December he lost a steady job in government contracting. Gillespie hired him to renovate a mountain home she owns in Brevard, N.C. He had been taking the nearly five-hour drive every week.

The time apart took a toll on their marriage. His wife also discovered emails he had exchanged with another woman, according to Gillespie.

"He was lonesome. He was depressed," Gillespie said. "Losing his job was part of the issue. But he has a great facade and didn't talk about that stuff much."

Like most couples, they fought, but it never seemed to get physical.

During the dinner Saturday night, Gillespie sensed some tension. Bob McCaffrey received a phone call during the meal that upset his wife.

"We had a nice meal, but they both were upset. His eyes were red," Gillespie said. "We put the dishes in the sink and left."

The story Bob McCaffrey relayed to sheriff's deputies didn't jibe with Gillespie's version of events.

He told investigators that he and his wife went out Saturday afternoon and ate at a restaurant. When they returned home, they fought, and he left to take a walk "because he had a lot on his mind," according to an incident report.

After the stroll, he told investigators that his wife was lying on the bed, ignoring him. So he jumped in his pickup and drove upstate, where he maintains an address in Easley. The couple do not have a home there.

He told deputies that "he was very emotional and distressed about his marriage and wanted to get some space and time away," the report said.

About 2:30 a.m. Sunday, a police officer in Travelers Rest, which is northeast of Easley, wrote Bob McCaffrey a ticket for speeding.

McCaffrey said he returned to West Ashley about 6:30 a.m. His children were still asleep, but his wife was nowhere around.

Left behind were some of her personal items and the note that didn't make sense to family members. They decided to call the sheriff's office later Sunday, when it became apparent that she wouldn't be walking through the door.

"She would not have had a secret life. She was not planning on leaving," said Helen Banach of Summerville, her sister. "This was not of her doing."

Deputies remove evidence from home of missing mom

Bob McCaffrey appeared in family court Thursda at the Charleston County Courthouse for a hearing about the custody on his children, who will be under the care of their aunt, Debbie Pearson.

Deputies pulled two large paper bags of evidence this morning from the West Ashley home of missing woman Gayle McCaffrey.

A dog sniffed around the Limestone Boulevard house as forensics experts walked in and out of the home.

The investigators wrapped up at the scene about 11 a.m.

The property was cordoned off with crime-scene tape. McCaffrey's Jeep, which had been in the driveway, was removed.

Sheriff's Maj. Jim Brady said the investigators were simply trying to determine if anything had occurred at the home Saturday night, when McCaffrey was last seen.

Brady said deputies are no closer to an arrest than they were Thursday, when they announced they had developed a "specific person of interest.

When asked if the person might be Bob McCaffrey, Clark said, "We have not ruled out anyone in the investigation." When asked if McCaffrey is cooperating with investigators, Clark said, "I would not say that."

Chris Lizzi, Bob McCaffrey's attorney, insisted that his client is cooperating with the Sheriff's Office. McCaffrey surrendered his Dodge pickup, which was towed from the parking lot of Lizzi's office Wednesday, the attorney said.

The Sheriff's Office "pretty much said he was the person of interest at the time they took his children," Lizzi said. "They're trying to turn the public sentiment against this guy."

Clark said searches expected over the next few days will include McCaffrey's truck.

"Over the last several days, we've been talking to a number of folks in and around Charleston as well as parts of Travelers Rest," Clark said. He said the information leads to the McCaffrey property and "other parts of Charleston County."

In response to a question, he said that in previous inspections of the McCaffrey residence, "Nothing was found to suggest there was a struggle."

While Clark did not say who might be arrested and did not state a timetable for an arrest, he said the investigation has zeroed in on an individual and "is focused right now on the residence."

"I can't speculate how soon we might make an arrest, but I do anticipate we will be making an arrest," Clark said.

He also said investigators want to talk to anyone who had contact with Gayle McCaffrey in the past 10 days.

During their earlier search, deputies removed a cache of firearms from the McCaffrey home, a neighbor familiar with Bob McCaffrey said.

The State Law Enforcement Division is being consulted and is preparing a "profile" of a possible suspect, Clark said. He said SLED also is examining the type-written farewell note that supposedly was left in the home by Gayle McCaffrey.

Bob McCaffrey and some of his wife's closest relatives attended a Family Court hearing Thursday to determine temporary custody of the couple's children.

Judge Paul Garfinkle ruled that the children should be released from state custody to their aunt, Debbie Pearson of Mount Pleasant. Pearson is Gayle McCaffrey's sister. The Department of Social Services took the children into custody soon after the investigation of their mother's disappearance began.

Garfinkle approved an agreement hashed out before the hearing, permitting the McCaffreys' 4-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter to live with Pearson, and allowing Bob McCaffrey supervised visits.

McCaffrey sat quietly in a blue shirt and sneakers during the hearing.

Lizzi said there was no reason to take the children from their father, but the father presently wants them to live with other family members.

Lizzi disputed what sheriff's officials said behind closed doors -- that the children would be in "imminent danger of being harmed or taken away" by their father.

"They were forcibly taken out of the family's care and forcibly interviewed. They were traumatized," Lizzi said. "We'd rather join forces with the police and find his wife," he said.

While at court, Gayle McCaffrey's relatives said they were unaware of the comments Clark was about to make to the press at the Sheriff's Office headquarters. The relatives said they were focused on the custody hearing and the search for the children's mother.

"We're going to get them back home, get them back with family, get them settled," Pearson said. "And then we're going to find my sister."

The missing woman's relatives joked as they awaited a ruling and gasped in joy when the judge handed it down. Still, they said that the scenarios racing through their minds keep them up at night, but that they would have to accept whatever the truth is.

Bob McCaffrey told deputies Sunday that he drove to Travelers Rest to clear his head after arguing with his wife as they ate a St. Patrick's Day dinner of cabbage rolls and chocolate cake.

He was issued a speeding ticket at 2:15 a.m. Sunday by a Travelers Rest police officer who cited McCaffrey for traveling 64 mph in a 45 mph zone on State Park Road, which leads to Paris Mountain State Park.

Robert McCaffrey is a handiman. He spent countless hours in his neighbors' homes, fixing this and repairing that.

Now it is his neighbors who are spending countless hours wondering what happened to McCaffrey's wife, Gayle.

"Where is Gayle?" said one of McCaffrey's neighbors who asked to remain anonymous, referring to the only question he would ask the man he describes as "being like a son to me" if McCaffrey came back to his now vacant home on Limestone Blvd.

The neighbor admits he does not think "it looks good for Bob."

Five other neighbors said because Mrs. McCaffrey has not been seen or heard from in nearly a week, it does not look good for her either.

"It's been very stressful for all the neighbors who know Gayle and Bob both," said a different neighbor who lives just two houses away from the McCaffrey home. "There's a lot of unanswered questions."

Many people in the neighborhood are now asking where do the police go from here.

John Clark with the Charleston Sheriff's Department said Friday afternoon, investigators still have a person of interest, but have not made an arrest. Clark also said Mrs. McCaffrey's family is allowed in the West Ashley home. Mr. McCaffrey is not.

To those who live around the area, the details of the last week seem more like a Hollywood movie than a real-life scenario.

"I've never wondered how others on TV are feeling," said the neighbor who lives across the street. "Now it comes back to haunt you."

Normal Police: Person of Interest Identified in McCaffrey Case

Post by Wrapitup on Sat Mar 24, 2012 4:26 pm

At a press conference about the disappearance of Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey Thrusday afternoon the Charleston County Sheriff's Office announced it had identified a person of interest.
By Jonathan Allen Email the author March 22, 2012

UPDATE 3:56 p.m.: The Charleston County Sheriff's Office announced Thursday it has a person of interest in the case of Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey's disappearance.

Chief Deputy John Clark declined to name that person or reveal that person's connection to the missing McCaffrey. Clark did not rule out McCaffrey's husband Robert though.

"Currently we have a person of interest that we are focusing our investigation on," Clark said. "We have not ruled out anybody in this investigation."

Clark added that the investigation will be focusing on the McCaffrey residence at 2829 Limestone Drive for the next two days. He said investigators are also working with Travelers Rest Police, where Robert McCaffrey was pulled over for speeding early Sunday morning before he returned home and reported his wife missing.

Clark added that investigators are talking with everyone who had any contact with Marjorie McCaffrey in the days prior to her disappearance.

Investigators do expect to make an arrest, Clark said, but he did not speculate on when that might be.

Asked about the typewritten letter that Robert McCaffrey told investigators he found along with his wife's wedding ring, car keys and checkbook, Clark said SLED was helping the Sheriff's Office with that part of the investigation.

Clark said investgators will be searching in and around the McCaffrey home in the coming days including the backyard.

He added that Robert McCaffrey has not been totally cooperative in the investigation.

At a custody hearing today for the McCaffrey children, who were apparently in the home when Marjorie McCaffrey disappeared, Clark said the Sheriff's Office was prepared to testify that it was concerned about their safety because they had been left alone in the house for a number of hours.

1:30 p.m.: The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has been looking for Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey since her husband Robert reported her missing on the morning of Sunday March 18.

The Office has announced a 3:30 p.m. press conference today to talk about the case. Check back with West Ashley Patch then to learn what was said.

Robert McCaffrey told investigators she was at the family's West Ashley home in bed around 10 p.m. Saturday, March 17 when he left for another home the family owns in Easley. The couple's two children, ages 10 and 4, were also at the home when he left. McCaffrey said Marjorie was gone when he returned to Charleston around 6 a.m. Sunday, March 18. The children were still at the family's home.

According to the Sheriff's Office's report on the disappearance, Robert McCaffrey said he found his wife's wedding ring, keys and checkbook inside when he returned and a subsequent Sheriff's Office statement noted her car was also at the house.

The Charleston County Consolidated 9-1-1 Center has released the audio recording of the 9-1-1 call Robert McCaffrey made to report his wife missing this week. Additionally several media outlets have reported that Robert McCaffrey was stopped for speeding around 2 a.m. Sunday in Travelers Rest.

Sisters worried about missing woman, concerned about children

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -
When Helen Banach and Debbie Pearson learned that their sister had been reported missing Sunday they couldn't believe it. Even though the sisters say Gayle and Robert McCaffrey were having marital problems, their sister's disappearance just doesn't add up.

"Somebody made a mistake, that doesn't make sense. It's not something that would happen," Pearson said. "That's not the type of people we are. It's just not her."

According to investigators, Robert McCaffrey called 911 Sunday and reported his wife, Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey, missing. Banach and Pearson say they last spoke to their sister Saturday as they were planning to take their families on a boat outing.

"We spoke with her Saturday morning. We were doing a big family outing and inviting her and the kids," Pearson said. "We were going to spend a day on the boat, but she had plans in the neighborhood."

An incident report states that both Robert and Gayle McCaffrey went to dinner Saturday, and following a verbal argument, Robert drove to a family home in Easley. Robert McCaffrey told authorities that when he returned the following morning, Gayle was nowhere to be found.

The sisters say it has been hard on both of them and their families since they haven't heard from their sister. Banach says that the couple had marital problems.

"We know there were some marital problems and she had talked to us about it," Banach said."She was working on being a family and that was all she was interested in. There was no indication that she would have gone off at all. "

Banach and Pearson say the couple was working through their issues.

"They were having problems, but they were working through them," Pearson said.

Pearson said she spoke to Robert McCaffrey on Tuesday night and said she is worried for him since the Department of Social Services has taken the couple's children.

"I'm worried he's alone. His family has not joined him, he's totally alone in all this," Pearson said. "He's hurting because he's a likely suspect and that's even more pressure on him. He's alone, no one should ever be alone."

The siblings also have concerns over Robert and Gayle McCaffrey's children who were taken from the home by DSS on Sunday following the missing report.

"One of the most important things is to make sure that those kids are safe, loved and they're not scared," Banach said."We're very worried about their state of mind right now."

Both Banach and Pearson say that they've heard different scenarios of what might have happened.

"None of the scenarios make any sense at all. None of them sound right," Banach said.

Both women want answers in their sister's disappearance.

"We've gone through them in all our heads, nothing makes sense." Pearson said.

The sisters say they don't believe that Gayle McCaffrey would have just left her kids and not contacted anyone.

"If she would have hit a point, she would have called one of us and told us that and given us the children," Pearson said. "She would not have just left."

Pearson and Banach say that in the past when something has come up, Gayle would leave her kids with one of the sisters who live within 30 minutes of the West Ashley home.

"Call us. Come home. Her children need her," Banach said. "Everyone here loves her. She's a sweet person and she doesn't deserve to be hurt."

On Wednesday morning, investigators searched a marsh near the couple's home in West Ashley, but the search came up empty.

"We know the police have been checking the rivers, we came down today to see about that," Pearson said. "It turned out to be nothing and that's something we're grateful for."

According to an incident report, Robert McCaffery, the husband of Gayle McCaffrey, told officers he and his wife went to dinner at 2:30 p.m. When they returned home, he says they got into an argument. (Who goes to dinner at 2:30PM??)

Saturday, March 17 (10 p.m.)
According to an incident report, Robert McCaffery left home at 10 p.m. He said his decision to leave and take a nearly 4-hour drive to a home he frequents in Easley, S.C. came after a walk around the neighborhood and after he was given the silent treatment by his wife. (If she was giving him the silent treatment, why did he feel the need to leave? It's not like she was arguing w/him. I don't buy this!)

Sunday, March 18 (2:15 a.m.)
Robert McCaffery was issued a speeding ticket in Travelers Rest. According to the citation, he was driving 64 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Sunday, March 18 (6:30 a.m.)

According to an incident report, Robert McCaffrey tells officers he returned home at 6:30 a.m. and found his wife's checkbook, wedding ring and a typed letter on a counter. The McCaffrey children were taken into protective custody. (WHY were the children taken into protective custody? Also, this reminds me of Faith's case in a lot of ways)

Monday, March 19 (3:28 p.m.)
The Charleston County Sheriff's Office releases a missing person report in regards to Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey.

Monday, March 19 (4:30 p.m.)
The sheriff's office holds a press conference during which Sheriff Al Cannon reports details of the typed letter are a part of the investigation and cannot be shared. He also states Robert McCaffrey received a speeding ticket near Easley.

Deputies wrap up new search for Gayle McCaffrey

Posted: Mar 27, 2012 8:51 AM CDT

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -
Charleston County sheriff's deputies have finished searching a new area for Gayle McCaffrey, the 36-year-old West Ashley woman who has been missing for more than a week.

Sheriff's deputies, Charleston County Rescue and Charleston County Emergency Preparedness members conducted several foot searches in the general area of Highway 61 and Bees Ferry Road on Tuesday.

Deputies set up a mobile crime scene unit near the St. Phillips AME Church and used boats to search the nearby Ashley River. Investigators did not find any new information and do not plan to search anywhere else Tuesday.

Major Jim Brady with the sheriff's office said Tuesday's searches were not based on any tips, but were meant to try and eliminate locations near the area where McCaffery went missing.

For the last few days, investigators have been pouring over items collected from McCaffrey's home last week. Deputies wrapped up a two-day search at McCaffrey's house in West Ashley on Friday. The mother of two has been missing for over a week.

Last week, investigators announced that they have a person of interest in the case, but are not giving a name at this time.

McCaffrey's husband, Robert McCaffrey, says he got into a verbal argument with his wife last Saturday night. He claims he left their home and when he got back Sunday morning she was gone.

According to deputies, Robert McCaffrey has not been fully cooperating in the investigation. The couple's children are now in the custody of Gayle McCaffrey's sister.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Debbie Pearson was granted custody of her sister's children last week while her sister remains missing and investigators continue their search. Wednesday, the family started reaching out for help from the community as they care for the children of Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey.

Gayle McCaffrey's other sister, Helen Banach , has set up a fund where people can contribute to the family.

"So many people have reached out wanting to help," Banach said. "There are so many little things they (the kids) need."

Donations can be made to any Wells Fargo bank under the account name, "Gayle McCaffrey Children's Fund."

"This money is not for attorney's fees or rewards," Banach said. "This money is for the basics for the kids -- summer camp, school lunch."

Banach says she wants to thank people in advance and says the children, ages four and 10 are doing okay.

Their mother, Gayle, was recently reported missing by her husband Robert McCaffrey. While Charleston County Sheriff's investigators have not named the missing woman's husband a person of interest, they took the children into protective custody.

Last week, a family court judge granted custody to Gayle's sister Debbie and allowed supervised visitations for Robert McCaffrey at the Lowcountry Children's Center.

Stay with to ABC News 4 for updates on this developing case.

Evidently, LE doesn't trust the father. And the Supervised visits are NOT in his home. I think it's pretty easy to guess that HE is the POI!

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -
As investigators plan to resume the search for missing woman Gayle McCaffrey this week, McCaffrey's sister says she's been up late at night trying to make sense of the situation.

"My mind goes both ways. My mind says it's been two weeks and there's no way she could be alive," Debbie Pearson said. "And the other side of me says what has she done, how has she done this to her kids and she's out there somewhere. I go both ways. I stay up a good bit praying about it."

McCaffrey, 36, hasn't been seen since Mar. 17, when her husband, Bob McCaffrey, says they got into a fight. The man said he left for the night, and returned next morning to find her gone and their children home alone.

Peason says the children, who are in her care, are doing good and miss their mother.

"We tell them,'Mom is missing and the police are looking to find her,'" Peason said."And they're going to stay with me until police find her."

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office say they will resume searching for McCaffrey this week in new areas, and they'll be using an airplane.

Deputies would not say exactly where they planned on searching, but said they would cover a lot of ground in the area.

"We would like some answers. I know the police are working hard," Peason said."If we had an answer of whether she was alive or dead, if this was her choice or someone hurt her, then we could work with the children and go from there. We're trying to do a normal life with the children and keep things calm and quiet."

Normal Sheriff: Gayle McCaffrey’s disappearance now considered a homicide, husband a suspect

Post by Wrapitup on Wed May 02, 2012 11:27 pm

BY ANDREW KNAPP
aknapp@postandcourier.com10 hours agoText size: A A A

The husband of missing West Ashley woman Gayle McCaffrey was named as the suspect in her death during a statement this morning by Sheriff Al Cannon.

Cannon said that judging by inactivity on McCaffrey’s bank account and the belief that the farewell note she supposedly left was “bogus,” investigators think Robert McCaffrey somehow killed his wife around St. Patrick’s Day.

Deputies will search a private property Thursday off Ashley River Road where cellphone records led them to think her remains might lie.

Robert McCaffrey had also been maintaining a love interest and had traveled Upstate to see the woman the night before he reported his wife missing, said Cannon, confirming statements made weeks ago by family members.

The sheriff said that the two exchanged text messages but that the woman didn’t share McCaffrey’s feelings. Cannon said the woman, who wasn’t named, is cooperating with investigators.

Despite naming McCaffrey as a suspect for the first time since he was labeled a person of interest weeks ago, the sheriff said there was no probable cause to arrest him.

Gayle McCaffrey disappeared more than six weeks ago and has not been found despite multiple searches.

McCaffrey was last seen March 17 by her husband, Robert McCaffrey, at their home on Limestone Boulevard. After making a quick trip Upstate for an unknown reason, Robert McCaffrey returned home the next morning and found a note saying his wife had left, possibly to be with another man.

The Citadel employee and devout Baptist had left personal items, such as her Jeep and wedding ring, behind. Her children were left sleeping without an adult in the house.

Robert McCaffrey reported her missing later in the day. Deputies have said he stopped giving them information after an initial interview.

Despite searches throughout a wide swath of West Ashley, deputies have struggled to find clues pertaining to the woman’s whereabouts.

Anyone with information in the case should call the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office at 202-1700 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.

Reach Andrew Knapp at 937-5414 or twitter.com/offlede.

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
The search for missing woman Gayle McCaffrey is now being investigated as a homicide, and her husband has been named as a suspect, Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon said Wednesday.

The sheriff said the 36-year-old woman's bank account has not been accessed since her Mar. 17 disappearance and a typed note left behind at their Limestone Boulevard home does not appear to be genuine.

"The contents of [that note] and what we're learning about both Bob McCaffrey and Gayle McCaffrey lead us to believe that the information in that note is bogus," Cannon said.

Gayle McCaffrey was reported missing by her husband, Robert McCaffrey on Mar. 18. The husband said he'd last seen McCaffrey around 10 p.m. before he left the residence to travel to Greenville County, investigators say.

On Wednesday, Cannon said Robert McCaffrey went to Greenville County to meet with a female love interest, but that meeting didn't "work out."

"We know there had been an argument, he left the home and drove to Greenville County, the northern part to meet a female," Cannon said. "I don't think what he hoped to accomplish with her occurred in terms of a relationship and the kind of conversation he wanted to have with her. I don't think the feelings that he had for her were returned by her."

Cannon said the love interest is cooperating with authorities, while Robert McCaffrey is not.

The sheriff added that all the evidence at this point is circumstantial, saying he would arrest Robert McCaffrey today if he had "probable cause."

"I think there is a tremendous amount of information and evidence pointing to him," Cannon said. "But at this point, it's circumstantial."

Cannon also said a new "significant" search is planned for Thursday at a piece of property on Highway 61 across from Drayton Hall. He said they will search there after receiving information from Gayle and Robert McCaffrey's cell phones.

Cannon said there was "nothing yet to indicate how Gayle McCaffrey died." According to Cannon, there was also nothing to suggest in the investigation that McCaffrey's kids had witnessed anything.

Authorities have performed numerous searches in areas near the McCaffrey's West Ashley home over the past month and a half, and they announced in late March they had developed a "person of interest," presumably Robert McCaffrey.

"We just want to thank Al Cannon and his team for all the hard work they are putting into this case," Gayle McCaffrey's sister, Debbie Pearson, said in a statement released after the press conference on Wednesday."They are working tirelessly to find Gayle. We would ask anyone wanting to help to continue to pray for the police. If anyone has information, please call Crime Stoppers."

Anyone who may have information in this case is asked to contact the Charleston County Sheriff's Office at 843-202-1700 or crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.

Normal Attorney, investigators: Information about McCaffrey traffic stop nothing new, remarkable

Post by Wrapitup on Wed May 16, 2012 3:27 pm

BY ANDREW KNAPP
aknapp@postandcourier.com Posted: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 11:06 a.m.
UPDATED: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 1:33 p.m. Text size: A A A

Information reported this week about the speeding ticket Bob McCaffrey received on the night his wife disappeared was an “attempt at further putting him in a bad light” and there was nothing new or remarkable for investigators, his attorney said this morning.

McCaffrey seemed agitated when he was stopped for speeding early March 18, and he had a handgun inside his Dodge Ram, according to the Travelers Rest Police Department. But the firearm had been legally stored in the pickup, and nothing was remarkable about the traffic stop, the official said.

The Post and Courier previously reported that McCaffrey was a shooting enthusiast and that sheriff’s investigators removed several firearms during a search of his West Ashley house. But none of the guns have been linked to any alleged crimes.

“That could have been anybody at all during a traffic stop,” attorney Chris Lizzi said this morning. “This information has been in the hands of law enforcement since Day 1, and it was part of his initial statements.

“Nothing has changed.”
Gayle McCaffrey, 36, was reported missing later on the day of the traffic stop. Investigators have unearthed no clues about what happened to her but have named her husband as a suspect in her death.

The couple had a disagreement during a family meal on St. Patrick’s Day, prompting Bob McCaffrey’s trip Upstate. That’s where he met with a woman he had been pursuing as a love interest, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office.

A Travelers Rest police officer stopped his truck on U.S. Highway 25 for going 64 mph in a 45-mph zone. He was issued a $135 ticket.

McCaffrey had a handgun stashed in the center console of his pickup, and he removed it as he reached for his registration and insurance information, Travelers Rest Police Chief Lance Crowe said.

While it’s best to inform an officer during a stop that a firearm is in the vehicle, Crowe said no laws were broken. The stop was one of more than a dozen conducted that evening by the officer, whom the chief called one of the most productive and knowledgeable on his force.

“There was nothing noteworthy about that traffic stop,” Crowe said. “It didn’t stand out to us at all. Nothing made the officer want to do any more during the stop than he did.

“Nothing flew up any red flags.”

Bob McCaffrey said he returned to his Limestone Boulevard home about four hours after the encounter and found his wife gone. Left behind were their two children, her wedding band, her cellphone and her Jeep. A typed note saying she had left to be with another man was determined to be bogus, sheriff’s investigators have said.

Though evidence technicians have removed weapons from the home, officials declined to theorize about how Gayle McCaffrey was killed.

“We removed several weapons from the residence,” sheriff’s spokesman Maj. Jim Brady said. “But they’re legal. They’re guns that he legally owns.” (So what? Did they check all his guns to see if they'd been fired recently?)

Through his attorney, the 41-year-old has maintained his innocence and remains hopeful that his wife will be found alive. He also has offered himself for follow-up interviews with investigators, Lizzi said.

At this point, any case against the man is purely circumstantial, officials have said. Several searches along S.C. Highway 61 near the couple’s home also have uncovered nothing.

Lizzi said the media and the authorities have continued to negatively portray his client “when they have no real evidence at all.”

Normal Family pleads with Bob McCaffrey to step forward in case of missing wife

Post by Wrapitup on Wed May 23, 2012 10:30 am

Andrew Knapp, Independent Mail coverage partner The (Charleston) Post and Courier
Posted May 23, 2012 at 6:08 a.m.

Helen Banach realizes that her baby sister could be anywhere in South Carolina, but she refuses to sit and stew over the thought.

With her dog, the Summerville woman has traipsed through the woods of West Ashley more than two dozen times, looking for any sign of Gayle McCaffrey, who disappeared two months ago. Banach's skin is pocked with the chigger bites to prove it.

She adheres a cardboard sign to her car's windows, apologizing in black ink for trespassing on landowners' property.

“I can't wait for the next official search party,” Banach said. “So I do whatever I can to find her. I can't give up.”

Like her, detectives looking into the case lose sleep. Their thoughts are consumed as they dedicate their working hours to the case. The matter has become personal for Sheriff Al Cannon, who embarks on his own solo expeditions along S.C. Highway 61.

That's why it perplexes family members that the missing woman's husband, Bob McCaffrey, hasn't again spoken with investigators. For the first time, relatives who have long publicly supported McCaffrey are expressing that consternation.

Instead, those trying to determine what happened to the woman who is presumed dead are left to rely on physical evidence, which sheriff's officials have admitted is sparse.

“We understand that a suspect has rights, but my sister has rights too,” Banach said. “She doesn't deserve to be lying in a field somewhere like a piece of garbage, covered in leaves and bugs.”

Banach appealed to McCaffrey, who is considered the suspect in a homicide case, in hopes that he would step forward.

The 40-year-old carpenter comes and goes from the Lowcountry, but he spends most days in Brevard, N.C., where he is renovating a relative's house. He visits his two children on the weekends, and sheriff's officials said they have contacted him often with interview requests.

His attorney, Chris Lizzi, told The Post and Courier in early May that he offered his client for questioning. Lizzi could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

“We've asked for him to come talk to us,” sheriff's Maj. Jim Brady said. “He has not been presented. He has not cooperated.”

Family problems

The portrayal of Bob McCaffrey as a killer has opened fissures in a normally close-knit family. Contacted Tuesday, a relative said those who support him are a “small contingent,” and because of that, the woman asked not to be identified.

“I continue to love Bob,” she said. “I can't help but to think that he wasn't involved. So we can't deny him access to his children or treat him like he's not part of the family.”

Relatives on Tuesday offered few additional details about the disappearance.

The couple had a disagreement during a St. Patrick's Day meal. Relatives said it was over a phone call from a Bob McCaffrey “love interest,” a Greenville County woman with whom he had been exchanging text messages, emails and phone calls for at least a month.

“My sister was in tears because he was texting and talking to her constantly,” Banach said. “But she thought it was just going to blow over, that it was a mistake and everything would get back to normal.”

That evening, something prompted McCaffrey to make a trip to the Upstate to see the woman, but she would not see him.

En route home, McCaffrey was ticketed for speeding in Travelers Rest, where a police officer noted in a report that McCaffrey was speaking on a cellphone with someone whom he referred to as “dude.”

Investigators have identified the caller, but they won't publicly disclose a name.

Relatives said the caller wasn't his 36-year-old wife. McCaffrey did send her text messages on the night of the disappearance, but they went unanswered.

When he returned to his Limestone Boulevard house, McCaffrey said his wife was gone. Her wedding ring, cellphone, Jeep and two children were left alone.

A note, which was later determined to be bogus, said she had left to be with another man.

McCaffrey reported his wife missing 12 hours later, and only after prodding. Relatives said he first consulted with his father, a retired police officer who lives in the Outer Banks.

“My aunt called me, and she was reading the goodbye note to me,” Banach said. “I stopped her five lines in and said that this is wrong and that if he doesn't call the police, I'm going to.”

Dealing with tragedy

In the past two months, relatives have picked up the pieces of a life that once was and tried to make sense of how it likely ended. They have contacted two psychic mediums, both of whom said Gayle McCaffrey is resting in a forest.

Her office at The Citadel, where she worked as the director of facilities finance, was cleared out and stuffed into two boxes this week. School officials had left the room untouched for two months, hoping for her return.

A sweater remained draped over her chair and the packages of Ramen noodles she often ate for lunch were still in drawers.

The couple's children, 5 and 11, cope with the loss in different ways, family members have said.

The youngest knows his mother is gone and that the police are looking for her. The eldest thinks she deliberately left them.

The youngsters visit counselors, who reportedly are torn about what comfort to offer them, because so much about their mother is unknown.

“That makes me sad,” Banach said, alluding to her sister's background in the Baptist church. “But I tell them she's in heaven now and how happy she is up there. And that she's definitely singing in the choir and ringing her bells.”

Normal Attorney: McCaffrey follow-up questioning would come with hitch

Post by Wrapitup on Sun May 27, 2012 3:28 pm

BY ANDREW KNAPP
aknapp@postandcourier.com Posted: Sunday, May 27, 2012 12:01 a.m.
UPDATED: Sunday, May 27, 2012 12:19 a.m.

The day after Bob McCaffrey called 911 to report his wife missing, he sat down with investigators and told his side of the story for five hours.

Since that debriefing more than two months ago, he hasn’t uttered a word to the authorities trying to find the West Ashley mother. Family members say the man who’s considered the suspect in Gayle McCaffrey’s presumed death won’t answer their questions either.

Though McCaffrey has professed a desire to find his wife alive, his stubbornness has dogged both the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office and loved ones, who want a proper burial for the 36-year-old Citadel employee and Baptist church member.

But his stance has remained firm: He won’t talk unless he’s provided with a recording or transcript of that initial interview.

Attorney Chris Lizzi said the Sheriff’s Office is trying to develop evidence against McCaffrey by “misusing and misinterpreting” any inconsistencies in his story that could result from a follow-up interview. He wants an account of that interview as protection against them doing that, he said.

“If they have any additional questions, we can provide them with any additional answers,” Lizzi said, adding that McCaffrey has been heeding his counsel in not speaking out. “If there’s anything we left out that day, we can provide it.

“But I don’t think another (unconditional) interview would assist them at all in finding his wife.”

Family members think this legal bargaining has interfered with the ultimate goal of all parties involved: to find the woman, dead or alive.

Helen Banach of Summerville, a sister of Gayle McCaffrey, said her family was “most assuredly” frustrated by what they dubbed a game of legal dodge ball. Banach spoke about that frustration for the first time last week in hopes that McCaffrey would willingly come forward.

“If the police need to question you, you should have to do it, even if you don’t get what you want,” Banach said Friday. “We’ve done everything we possibly can to find her. We’re just asking him to do that as well.”

Investigators have turned over the one-page written statement McCaffrey drafted after the mid-March disappearance, but Lizzi should not be privy to the recorded oral interview, officials said. Withholding such information is common procedure for homicide cases.

“(The attorney) is holding him out” by demanding the transcript, said Maj. Jim Brady, a sheriff’s spokesman. “Asking for that is just an excuse.”

The couple, who wed more than 14 years ago, had been experiencing marital problems when McCaffrey started wooing a love interest from Greenville, officials and relatives have said.

That relationship, which consisted of electronic and telephone communication, prompted a disagreement on St. Patrick’s Day as they dined on cabbage rolls, according to relatives. After last seeing his wife lying on a bed that night, McCaffrey told deputies, he drove to the Upstate for a meeting with the woman, who rebuffed him.

He said he returned the next morning and found his two children sleeping alone and his wife gone. Her Jeep and wedding band were abandoned. A typed note, now thought to be bogus, claimed she had left to be with another man.

Investigators have used activity on the couple’s cellphones to whittle down the areas where they might have been when she disappeared. That information prompted several searches near their Limestone Boulevard house, none of which produced any clues.

McCaffrey now travels between the Lowcountry and the mountainous Brevard, N.C., where he earns money by remodeling a family member’s house.

It was there on Thursday where a crew from a local news station confronted him. Hesitant to speak, he reiterated his attorney’s statement that he longs for his wife’s safe return.

He added that his “kids were stolen from me,” according to a video on WCBD-TV’s website.

Lizzi wouldn’t say whether his client has immediate plans to seek custody of the children. McCaffrey had agreed in March to temporarily send them to live with his wife’s sister in Mount Pleasant.

Lizzi said the news media have maligned his client despite the Sheriff’s Office having tenuous evidence against the 40-year-old.

Asked whether he agrees with his client’s faith that his wife could still return, Lizzi said he personally could not opine.

“It would be speculation to say she’s alive or dead,” he said. “I just think it was improper for the sheriff to declare her dead without any real evidence of foul play.”

Normal McCaffrey's sister says brother-in-law has moved on

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The sister of Gayle McCaffrey says her brother-in-law has moved on with his life with a new woman in North Carolina.

"He was working at my aunt's house when all this happened up in Brevard, North Carolina," Helen Banach said. "He was supposed to be done two weeks later, but he dragged it out this long, so he has a place to stay. He's sort of built his own little life up there."

According to Banach, Robert has brought the woman around the family there. She's suspicious of how quickly he moved on from her sister without any closure.

"Evidently he got a new girlfriend and he is being very open about the relationship, not trying to hide it or anything. He seems to have moved on fairly well."

Investigators have named Robert a suspect in Gayle's disappearance, but he has yet to be arrested or charged.

ABC News 4 reached out to Robert's attorney Thursday, but did not hear back. There was also no one home at the McCaffrey's West Ashley home.

Banach says she feels angry about the entire situation, knowing the two children don't have a mother, and their father is carrying on elsewhere.

"They're starting to realize this is not a vacation. They want to know why they can't go home and why they can't see their mom, and we don't have an answer for them," she said.


Banach says she isn't going to lose hope and has plans to work with Community United Effort organization, which helps families find a missing person through searches.

"Somebody has to have seen something. My sister was a very sweet person, and she doesn't deserve to be forgotten -- and she doesn't deserve to be neglected."

TIMELINE: Disappearance of Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey
McCaffrey's sister says brother-in-law has moved on
Husband suspected of homicide in Gayle McCaffrey's disappearance

Missing woman's family asks for help

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Community United Effort's Center for Missing Persons is joining forces with the family of missing mother-of-two.

Gayle McCaffrey's sister, Helen Banach, has announced a press conference in the Food Lion shopping center on College Park Road, directly across the street from one of six billboards put up around the Lowcountry broadcasting the search for her sister.

Banach says that Adams Outdoor donated the six billboards that flash Gayle's picture along with a phone number people can call if they have any information on her disappearance. The billboards will be up for the next two weeks.

Maj. Jim Brady with the CCSO confirms someone from the Sheriff's office will be at the press conference. Banach says she will also be there along with members of CUE. Banach also says CUE is meeting with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office all morning Monday to talk about the investigation and any new searches they are planning.

"At this time new searches are not planned and no new additional information has been obtained in the investigation," said Maj. Brady in a press release. "However if during the course of the meeting additional search areas are determined we will certainly consider doing so."

Gayle McCaffrey was reported missing by her husband, Robert, on March 18. Since, there have been searches and prayer services, but few developments in the investigation.

Investigators have named Robert McCaffrey a suspect in Gayle's disappearance, but he has yet to be arrested or charged.

Normal McCaffrey missing for 6 months

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – Six months have passed since Gayle McCaffrey went missing.

At the Citadel Tuesday, co-worker James Grigg remembered McCaffrey, whose position has not yet been filled.

"It's been kind of surreal having an employee you see on a Friday, hoping she has a good weekend and Monday morning she's disappeared," he said.

McCaffrey was reported missing March 18. While many searches have been conducted, investigators have come up empty-handed.

In May, Charleston County Sheriff's office named her husband, Robert McCaffrey, a suspect in her disappearance and called the case a homicide.

Grigg says he knows Gayle well, and she was not one to miss work.

"She was always the first one at the office. No matter what time you arrived Gayle was sitting at her desk," he said.

The military college says just recently they began reviewing applications to fill McCaffrey's position, but only with the family's consent.

For Grigg, he says even though they are trying to bring closure, he still holds hope that she's alive.

"I'm really hoping tomorrow she'll walk in the door and we'll give her a big hug and she'll go back to work."

Last month, the Community United Effort (CUE), Center for Missing Persons announced they would assist in an upcoming search.

The search has been scheduled for October.

Sheriff: New searches possible for Gayle McCaffrey

Posted: Oct 23, 2012 6:25 PM CDT
Updated: Oct 23, 2012 7:27 PM CDT
By Live 5 News Web Staff - email

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon said there may be some new searches in the future for missing West Ashley mother Gayle McCaffrey.

McCaffrey was last seen at her home on Limestone Boulevard on St. Patrick's Day.

On Tuesday, Cannon said there may be some new searches in the future, in hopes of finding her body, as he believes she was murdered.

Cannon says McCaffrey's husband, Bob, is their only suspect, but says the sheriff's office does not have the evidence to charge him.

First Upstate search planned in Gayle McCaffrey case

Andrew Knapp Posted: Friday, November 9, 2012 1:43 p.m.
UPDATED: Friday, November 9, 2012 1:44 p.m.

Local sheriff’s detectives and volunteers will scour an Upstate property for the first time Saturday in search of missing West Ashley mother Gayle McCaffrey.

The effort is not based on new information gathered in what the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office considers a homicide investigation, Maj. Jim Brady said. The land off Freeman Bridge Road in Easley, which is just outside Greenville, has long been an area of interest, he said.

McCaffrey, 36, was reported missing March 18 by her husband.

The night before, family members said the two had a disagreement during a St. Patrick’s Day dinner. He then took a trip to Easley to visit a love interest, but the woman turned him down, according to authorities.

Bob McCaffrey, 40, reported his wife missing the next day after he came home and found her gone, he reported. Left behind were personal belongings and a note saying the mother of two and Citadel employee had gone to live with another man.

Sheriff’s investigators have long suspected Bob McCaffrey in his wife’s presumed death, but they have not gathered any solid evidence in connection with a crime.

Their efforts have included fruitless searches near the couple’s home on Limestone Boulevard.

The sweep planned in Easley is the first such operation in the Upstate, where Bob McCaffrey was ticketed for speeding early on the day he reported his wife missing. Deputies will combine forces with the North Carolina-based CUE Center for Missing Persons, which in August offered its volunteers for a future search.

Police: Body Found Not Gayle McCaffrey
Two bodies discovered in barrels in Lake Hartwell this week have been identified.

By Jason Evans Email the author November 16, 2012

Police say that the one of the bodies recently found in barrels in Lake Hartwell is not the body of missing Charleston woman Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey.

Investigators from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office and searchers with the CUE Center for Missing Persons were in Easley Saturday, Nov. 10, searching a piece of property for clues in McCaffrey's disapperance.

She was last seen on March 17.

The search of the Dacusville property concluded at 6:30pm that day.

Major Jim Brady with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office said that no additional evidence or information was located as a result of the search.

“Detectives will continue to actively investigate the case and future search areas may be determined as the investigation progresses,” Brady said.

Two bodies in barrels were found in Lake Hartwell this week.

The first was found on Wednesday afternoon near the Interstate 85 bridge.

A second body was found the following day, near the Centerville Road bridge.

The first body was a woman's body, leading to speculation that the body might have been McCaffrey's.

Charleston County investigators announced last night that the body is not Gayle McCaffrey.

“Our detectives have been in contact with Anderson County Sheriff's Office and based on our conversations, it has been determined that the body identified is not Gayle McCaffrey,” Brady said.

Earlier today it was announced that the Anderson County Coroner has identified the victim as 37-year-old Andrea Kellie Mitchell.

The second body is a man.

The name of the deceased man has not been released, pending notification of family members.

Investigators are continuing to search the areas where the barrels were found.

OMG!! CUE goes searching for Gayle and finds not one, but two bodies? faint

Retracing steps, searchers find no sign of Gayle McCaffrey

Andrew Knapp Posted: Tuesday, February 5, 2013 12:13 a.m.

ANDREW KNAPP/STAFF -- Feb. 4, 2013 -- Searchers take a break Monday during a sweep of the woods near Drayton Hall Elementary on S.C. Highway 61 in West Ashley in connection missing mother Gayle McCaffrey. Officials revisited several areas that had previously been searched in hopes that a change in weather conditions could help turn up a clue. Buy this photo
A FedEx envelope addressed to Gayle McCaffrey sat jammed into a doorstep crack outside her West Ashley home Monday.

It had been delivered to the missing mother’s Limestone Boulevard house in October. But even as 70 people and dogs fanned out into the woods just to the north and retraced the steps that searchers had treaded before, there was no sign of its recipient.

McCaffrey was 36 on March 18 when her husband, Bob McCaffrey, told deputies he last saw her. He has been dubbed a suspect in what authorities have said is her presumed death.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office has been quick to say that the case remains active, that detectives continue to chase down leads.

They have searched portions of West Ashley and Upstate areas near Easley, where Bob McCaffrey traveled on the day she went missing. In one case, a family member’s dream sent authorities on a fruitless search in Newberry County, which has no known connection with the case.

But despite periodic meetings to discuss new angles in the stagnating case, investigators still have no solid information about what happened to Gayle McCaffrey.

“Last time, someone said it’s a cold case,” sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said. “But we haven’t put it in a box and put it off to the side. We’re actually working on it.”

Most of Monday’s search was focused on a dumping site for concrete and other construction refuse more than two miles north of the McCaffrey home.

The effort involved seven agencies, including volunteers from The Citadel, where McCaffrey worked. It was not prompted by any new information or hunches; sheriff’s officials already have said that the area was the source of cellphone activity on the night of the disappearance.

The measure simply was designed to revisit the previously searched ground in hopes of stumbling over something that was missed.

A factor in the renewed activity was the weather. Leaves have fallen. Standing water in the forests has dried. Swamps have receded during the winter months, which has a tendency to reveal clues.

In January 2012, for example, a man gathering recyclable cans in the woods near St. Stephen stumbled across the remains of Joe Samuel Swinton, who had been reported missing two years earlier. At the time of his disappearance, which was not suspicious, authorities searched the same area, but they uncovered nothing because much of the land was covered in 7 feet of floodwater.

For members of McCaffrey’s family, finding her remains near her home is not a morbid thought. Helen Banach of Summerville, one of her sisters, said such a discovery would bring peace.

Banach chipped in Monday by serving lunch to the volunteers, rescuers and law enforcers. The First Baptist Church of Charleston, where McCaffrey is a member, cooked batches of chili to keep the crews warm.

“Whenever we get a bunch of people together, it’s that much more of a possibility that we’ll find something,” she said. “It’s another chance to bring her home.”

Bob McCaffrey, 41, has not fielded questions about the disappearance since his first debriefing last spring.

Brady said the Sheriff’s Office has been in contact with the suspect’s attorney, Chris Lizzi, in an attempt to prompt more questioning.

Lizzi has said that his client thinks his wife is still alive and that investigators need to consider other possibilities. The attorney could not be reached for comment Monday.

But Brady said investigations never developed any information to support an alternative explanation to homicide.

“Nothing from the investigation to this point has taken us in any other direction than Robert McCaffrey,” he said.

Source: Dive teams searching pond in McCaffrey case

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -
The Charleston County Sheriff's Office Underwater Recovery Team is searching a pond off Bees Ferry Road on Tuesday morning, and it may be related to the case of missing West Ashley woman Gayle McCaffrey.

While sheriff's office spokesman Major Jim Brady first said the search at the pond off Bear Swamp Road had "nothing to do with the McCaffrey case," a source close to the investigation told us otherwise.

The source said crews were searching for evidence related to the McCaffrey case.

Brady later said dive teams were conducting monthly training, and decided to operate there "as an opportunity to possibly assist in the case."

Live 5 Morning Anchor Kyle Jordan went to the pond located behind St. Andrews Presbyterian Church around 9 a.m., and while dive team crews would not say what they were searching for, they told him they scanned the body of water by boat for about three hours on Monday.

Divers say they pond is about four feet deep. Around 10 a.m. the dive team began suiting up to begin combing the waters.

The search site is not far from previous search sites in the McCaffrey case. Recently, search crews returned to a site off Highway 61 near Magnolia Plantation.

While crews searched the general area of Bees Ferry Road and Highway 61 in late March 2012, it is unclear if they searched the area of Bear Swamp Road.

McCaffrey was reported missing by her husband, Robert McCaffrey, on Mar. 18, 2012. He told authorities he had last seen her the day before, when they had an argument.

Sheriff Al Cannon has said McCaffrey is the prime suspect in his wife's disappearance.

The sheriff's office released pictures of the couple's vehicles, a blue Dodge Ram pickup and a dark blue Jeep Grand Cherokee, on Sunday.

Brady said the vehicles may have been in the area of Bees Ferry Road and Highway 61 on the morning she was reported missing.

Normal Search for Gayle McCaffrey enters 2nd year with new leads, more questions

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
Two years later and no answers to what happened to missing West Ashley woman Gayle McCaffrey.

Major Eric Watson, spokesperson with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office says they haven't given up and are now following new leads. Watson says he cannot give much information because he doesn't want to jeopardize the case.

White flowers were placed front and center in the sanctuary of the First Baptist Church.

"To remember a wonderful sister, mother and friend," said Pastor Marshall Blalock.

Blalock says Sunday's program was dedicated to the missing mother.

"The hearts of everyone at First Baptist is so drawn to this family because of the unresolved nature of this case two years later," said Blalock.

Blalock says pews were filled with friends and family of Gayle McCaffrey.

"We're still waiting to hear what the outcome is. For her to go missing just didn't make any sense to anyone," said Blalock.

St. Patrick's Day marks exactly two years since McCaffrey was last seen in her West Ashley home.

Blalock said, "We know Gayle, we know she would've never on her own accord left her home and family. So something bad happened we don't know what it is obviously but we know something bad happened."

A spokesperson with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office says there is still a lot going on with the investigation.

"I do encourage those who are working to solve the case to not give up and to keep working at it and to know that we're behind them as much as we can," said Blalock.

Blalock is comforted in knowing McCaffrey is a religious woman. She's been part of the church most of her life, playing hand bells and singing in the choir.

Blalock said, "If she's no longer with us then she's with the Lord himself. We know that if that's the case, she's in a much better place than any of us here on this earth."

The sheriff's office says McCaffrey's husband, Bob is still the prime suspect in her disappearance. There has not been enough evidence to arrest him.

According to the sheriff's office there are no additional searches planned for Gayle McCaffrey.
