Salisbury Police are still looking for a pregnant woman who was reported missing last week.

Salisbury native Carrie Bradshaw-Crowther, 49, went missing on Tuesday. Bradshaw-Crowther was last seen on Wednesday, June 3 at a Shell Station on East Broad Street in Statesville, according to a police department news release. Salisbury Police Department Spokeswoman Shelia Lingle said the Bradshaw-Crowther was also seen at a hotel near the gas station in Statesville.

Photos from the gas station’s cameras show Bradshaw-Crowther wearing a blue raincoat and carrying a brown purse.

Bradshaw-Crowther is described as 5-foot-7 and weighing 140 pounds. She has brown hair and is nine months pregnant. Her daughter Lauren Lusk said Bradshaw-Crowther was scheduled to have a C-section at a Charlotte hospital on Tuesday, June 2.

Lingle said police are looking for Bradshaw-Crowther out of concern for the woman’s and the child’s safety.

In a news release, police said Bradshaw-Crowther is driving a champagne-colored, 2001 Mazda MPV van. The vehicle has a Kansas license plate with the tag number QKP711.

Lusk said she was gone for a short period to fill up her vehicle with gas before the C-section appointment. Lusk said when she returned to the house, Bradshaw-Crowther was gone. Her mother’s suitcase, clothes and purse were in the home, but Bradshaw-Crowther’s wallet and cellphone were missing.

Police have said Bradshaw-Crowther may be headed to Linville Gorge, a wilderness area in western North Carolina. Lingle said the woman may also be headed toward Kansas. Law enforcement in Kansas have been notified, Lingle said.
