CMPD canceled the alert issued for a 70-year-old woman missing from her family’s home in Charlotte.

They canceled the alert around 12:28 p.m. Sunday and did not specify whether Virginia May Oates has been found.


A woman’s car tag was spotted an hour away from where she told her family she was going, and CMPD is asking for help finding her.

Virginia May Oates, 70, was last seen on Saturday as she left her family’s residence in the 6000 block of Raintree Way.

CMPD says she was in a 2010 black Toyota Corolla with the North Carolina license tag ZF-1579.


The North Carolina Center for Missing and Endangered Persons says she was heading to a McDonald’s at 1201 W Sugar Creek, but her car tag was read in Mocksville, one hour away around 1:12 a.m. Sunday.

Her family says she may have been trying to go to her residence in the 100 block of Kornegary Dr in Dudley, N.C. This location is almost three hours away from where her car was spotted.

The Wayne County sheriff did not find her there.
