GRANVILLE COUNTY, N.C. — The wife of a missing Granville County man was found dead Saturday in the Grassy Creek area. Lillian Terry was found floating near the shoreline around 4 p.m.

Authorities told WTVD it appeared she had been there for several days.

Her husband, John Terry, vanished over a year ago. Granville County deputies don’t expect to find him alive but continue to investigate.

His employer reported him missing Sept. 9, 2015, when the 57-year-old veteran UPS driver from Bullock didn’t show up for work.

The day before, John, who’d filed for separation from his wife Lillian Terry, missed their court hearing.

Authorities ruled it a homicide and searched their home multiple times.
