Somber second anniversary in search for Gayle McCaffrey

WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) - It's been two years since GayleMcCaffrey was last seen. The West Ashley mother of two was reported missing byher husband Robert. On Monday, McCaffrey's pastor remembered her duringSunday's service.

Pastor Marshall Blalock says McCaffrey was loved by all atFirst Baptist Church and they haven't forgotten the love she showed them as along-time congregation member.

Flowers were left at the altar over the weekend whereMcCaffrey worshipped in honor of the missing mother of two.

"So today our hearts are still broken because there's stillno definitive answers to what actually happened to Gayle," Blalock said.

Blalock says McCaffrey never left the hearts of thecongregation, and this week's flowers were donated by her family in the woman'shonor.

"We know this about Gayle: we know that she would never havevoluntarily left her family and all of her friends, so whatever happened weknow it didn't happen because she somehow decided to leave," Blalock said.

McCaffrey's home was cleaned out last September byvolunteers. It was then rented out.

Detectives with the Charleston County Sheriff's Officeconsider her disappearance on open and active case. Sheriff Al Cannon evennamed her husband as a suspect.

Since naming Robert McCaffrey as a suspect nearly two yearsago, officers and hundreds of volunteers have searched all over the state forsigns of McCaffrey, from a pond in West Ashley to property in Traveler's Rest.

Robert McCaffrey was given a speeding ticket in that areathe morning he reported his wife missing.

"I'm sure there will be other areas because until Gayle isfound, we're going to continue to assist the law enforcement as well as thefamily," said Monica Caison with the CUE Center for Missing Persons.

There are no future searches planned, but at the churchBlalock continues to keep the missing mother in his prayers.

Caison said McCaffrey will be mentioned as one of themissing people for whom they are searching at their annual conference thisweekend.{}
