Today brings a somber anniversary for the friends and family members of Gayle McCaffrey.

This day marks five years since the West Ashley woman vanished after what her husband described as an argument after an early dinner.

Gayle McCaffrey worked at The Citadel. Her husband Robert McCaffrey was named a suspect but has never charged with her death.

He did face obstruction charges after an arrest in a Mount Pleasant grocery store. Investigators said Robert McCaffrey was not truthful in his initial report to responding deputies and detectives.

Officials say misleading information hindered the investigation.

An incident report states Robert McCaffrey was hysterically crying when he was questioned about his wife's disappearance and appeared nervous.

"Robert began to walk back and forth and hold both hands to his forehead and look up to the ceiling," the report reads. While the first officer gathered more information, Bob McCaffrey "smirked and cried at the same time."

Gayle's body has never been found despite dozens of searches.

In a social media post, Gayle Mccaffery's friends are once again praying for justice and closure.
