Holly Fischer

DENVER, N.C. — Friends of a missing Charlotte woman said they are gearing up to find her Sunday and will be searching for her car in Wilkesboro.

Officials said 39-year-old Holly Fischer hasn’t been seen since leaving her parents’ house in Knoxville on Monday.

WSOC reported that friend Liz Stafford is spearheading a new search for Fischer. Outside her home, Stafford spoke to the media about her missing friend.

“And we are just keeping our focus on Holly to get her home,” she said, according to WSOC.

Fischer’s roommate spoke to WSOC by phone on Saturday.

“It’s very, very unusual, as everyone has said, for Holly not to check in,” said roommate Stephanie Hairfield.

Hairfield has lived with Fischer for four months in South End and said she contacted Fischer’s parents when her roommate didn’t respond to her calls or texts.

The Ashe County Sheriff told WSOC earlier this week that Fischer’s phone was pinged in Ashe County.

“I would like to clarify that north Wilkesboro is about 20 minutes from her family condo,” Stafford said.

She said she hopes by finding Fischer’s car, it will lead them to their friend.

“When we find her car, we will find Holly,” Stafford said.

As the search party gears up, friends of Fischer said there’s only one goal on their minds and that is to find her.
