Details of Disappearance

On October 29, 1982, at 9:30 a.m., Hamby left her Wilkesboro, North Carolina home to visit the NCNB Bank to deposit money for her mother and pay for her own car. She intended to deliver a message to her sister, who lived across the street from the bank, afterward, and then return home to accompany her mother on a shopping trip outside of the city.

Hamby’s mother called the bank when she didn’t get home by noon and learned that she had never made it there. Additionally, she hadn’t visited her sister. She has not been seen or heard from since.

Later on that day, Glenn’s Tastee Freeze in Wilkesboro discovered Hamby’s silver 1980 Mazda RX7 unlocked and abandoned. It was parked behind, close to the trash cans. Her wallet and driver’s licence were inside the vehicle, and it had a full tank of gas, but her keys and the cash she had been carrying were missing.

Witnesses claimed Hamby was seen driving her car to the scene of the discovery at 11:30 a.m. She was conversing with a “rough-looking” blond man who was with her at the time. She has not been seen or heard from since. With this case summary is a sketch of the suspect.

According to reports, Hamby is a dependable individual who would not have left without informing anyone. After completing her high school education at West Wilkes, she accepted a position in data processing at Northwestern Bank on Oakwood Road. In addition, she registered for Wilkes Community College with the intention of transferring to Appalachian State University.

In 1987, two potential suspects were looked into for their potential involvement in Hamby’s case; however, it was discovered that they were in prison at the time of her disappearance. Her case is still open.
