Candice Giles – Missing
Giles did not show up for an appointment and personal items were left at her home, which makes her family and friends think she may be in danger or need help.
“She’s just a vivacious, energetic, lovely person who enjoys life and loves people,” said Crossroads Presbyterian Church Pastor Bob Sheldon.
Sheldon said the couple recently sold their home on Parkview Drive and are in the process of moving, and that’s when Giles went missing.
“Tom was out making some sales calls today, and when he called back later this afternoon, she (Candace) wasn’t there,” Sheldon said.
She was last seen wearing a red long-sleeved shirt under a dark green sweater and blue jeans.
