CHESTERFIELD, Va. -- A Virginia man says his wife went missing over the weekend when she went to North Carolina.

Jonathan Basham said his wife of three years, Candy Basham, 37, hasn't been seen since she took her mother home to North Carolina to visit her children who live there, according to WTVR.

Basham's sister said she saw Candy Friday night, but she hasn't been seen since.

“She told me she loved me and she couldn’t stop hugging and kissing me and that’s the last time I saw her,” Jonathan Basham told WTVR.  “She made it to her mother’s house, she called me and said she was going to go to sleep so she could see her son in the morning.”

Later he found out his wife went to her sister's house in Cramerton, N.C. instead.

“Her sister said she was meeting up with some drug dealers and that’s the last I heard from her Friday night,” Jonathan Basham told WTVR.

Candy Basham stopped returning his texts on Saturday.

Her husband told WTVR that everyone has been calling her phone and posting Facebook messages to try to find her.

Candy Basham is described as a white female who is approximately 5 feet 4 inches or 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen driving a light blue Toyota Camry with Virginia tags SKNS4LF.

Basham's husband said he is concerned that drugs played a role in his wife's disappearance because she has a history of addiction. She was expected to appear in court next month on grand larceny charges.

“I think possible kidnapping because I have noticed a lot of money missing from my account,” Johnathan Basham told WTVR.

More than $800 was withdrawn from the couple's account at an ATM in the Gastonia area. Johnathan Basham said the last withdraw was Sunday afternoon.

He told WTVR that he is hoping for the best, but fears the worst because of his wife's criminal record.
