Search continues for missing Burlington woman

BURLINGTON, N.C. -- More than 100 people continued to search Saturday for a Burlington woman who went missing a week ago.

Police said Debra Dianne Sellars told her family she’d be back in a few hours but never returned.

Sheila Day, Sellars' sister, said she has had sleepless nights worrying and wondering about her.

“Is she waiting on me?” she said. “What’s going on? Is she calling out to me where I can't get to her?  I’ve been at work.  I can't function.  I miss her.  I want her to come home.”

Officials said the search teams cover roughly 37 blocks between her home and where her van was found. They have been passing out flyers of her along the way.

Officials said the family believes that a former boyfriend may have something to do with her disappearance. He is due in court in July for assaulting Sellars last year.

Police said he is not currently a person of interest. The investigation is ongoing.
