Missing Couple Located – Wife Deceased

October 30th, 2013 by

imageCharles and Margaret White of Warren were found Tuesday morning at around 8:52 a.m., just off of private Potlatch Road 17.

Authorities say that Monday the couple made it back to Warren after a trip to Monticello in which they were last seen in Wilmar at around 1:30 p.m. They were driving around in the country and got off the main road. The vehicle soon became stuck on an off road about 3/4 of a mile off of Potlatch Road 17.

As nighttime fell they knew they were completely stranded and decided to try and walk out to the main road. They were unable to complete the hike. Totally stranded and unable to go any further their Australian sheep dog stayed with them the entire night and helped keep other animals away from the couple. At some point during the night Mrs. Margaret White passed away. Tuesday morning, Charles White was able to make it to a road and flag down help and at that time crews were able to locate the place where the incident occurred. Mr. Charles White appeared to be ok, but out of precaution was taken to the Bradley County Medical Center.

Around 30 C&L workers, plus a number of other volunteers had been out searching for the couple for some time. Their efforts were much appreciated by local authorities and the family. Bradley County and Drew County officials had also been searching for the couple since Monday afternoon.

    Mine too. This is so very sad. My hubby and I were out searching in the fog as soon as it became day light. I had so much hope that they would both be found alive. God Bless the entire family and all of their friends. k
