RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh police are conducting a three-county search for a missing Wendell woman after a man was charged in connection with her alleged kidnapping. Police have confirmed that investigators have searched specific areas in Wake, Durham and Chatham counties for Cynthia Moreland, who was last seen Tuesday morning. Authorities said more locations wouldl be targeted in the near future, but they have not released details about the search locations or said if they have found any clues to her whereabouts.
Moreland was last seen Tuesday morning when she dropped her husband off at work. Her access card to a parking garage on Wilmington Street was used at 6:40 a.m. Tuesday, but she never reported to work at Progress Energy. Her car was found abandoned Wednesday morning in southeast Raleigh. Antonio Chance, 29, was identified as the man in a surveillance video police released late Wednesday. The video shows a man walking into a Dollar General store at 7955 Fayetteville Road shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Police said he tried to use Moreland’s debit card. Chance was arrested about two miles from where Moreland’s car was recovered. He has been charged with kidnapping and obtaining property by false pretenses and is being held on $1 million bond at the Wake County Jail. He has a criminal history and was convicted of a sexual offense in 1994 when he was 16. He has also been arrested twice in connection with failing to register as a sex offender.
Here is another animal that has a history of violence and is allowed to run free to commit more crimes. So much for a justice system.
