Multiple Jurisdictions Searching For Missing Woman

11406_10200542632470962_2134575223_nState troopers and sheriff’s deputies are continuing their investigation into the suspicious disappearance of a Queen Anne’s County woman who has been missing for the past two days.

The woman is identified as Robin L. Pope, 51, of Stevensville, Md. She is described as a white female, 5’4”, 105 lbs., with brown hair. Until December 2012, Pope had been residing with her husband, Wayne A. Pope Jr., in the 100-block of Beach Road, Stevensville. The couple separated in December and Robin Pope had been staying at a residence owned by a female friend on Kent Island.

Shortly after 2:00 a.m. on March 2, 2013, the Queen Anne’s County Emergency Operations Center received a call from Wayne Pope, who reported suspicious circumstances involving his wife. When Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Wayne Pope’s home, he told them his wife Robin had come to the home late Friday night to retrieve some belongings. After she arrived, he left the home. When he returned to the home early Saturday morning, he found his wife’s black 2011 Infinity still parked in the driveway, but she was not at the residence. He also said his dog, a Great Dane, was missing. Deputies found Robin Pope’s keys, purse, credit cards, and cash still in her vehicle.

Deputies entered Robin Pope into the National Crime Information Center database as a missing person and information was forwarded to area law enforcement agencies. They interviewed relatives and friends as they continued the search for Pope. A deputy responded to a residence in the vicinity of the Pope’s home, where their dog was found dead near the pier, with obvious trauma to the upper torso. The dog’s body has been taken to the Queen Anne’s County Humane Society pending further investigation.

On the evening of March 2, 2013, the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Maryland State Police Criminal Investigation Bureau and requested troopers take the lead in this investigation. Troopers from the State Police Homicide Unit and Criminal Enforcement Division responded and have been working the investigation since. Assistance is being provided by troopers from the Centreville Barrack, as well as Natural Resources Police officers and Queen Anne County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

State Police investigators and crime scene technicians are continuing to examine the location where Robin Pope was last seen. The Maryland State Police dive team will be conducting a search of the Chesapeake Bay in the area of the scene today, assisted by a State Police helicopter and marine units from the Natural Resources Police and the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with information about Robin Pope is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Centreville Barrack at 410-758-1101. Callers may remain confidential.

  1. we just walked by there and the MSP came up to us asking us to leave the area as it was now a crime scene? The crime lab people were walking into the house and appeared to be taking pictures in the large bay windowed living room. Sad :(

  2. yyyyyy says:

    oh my its ashame….cause it seems to be that the poor dog i think was hurt to cover something up…….that her husbvand has done to her…

  3. saddened says:

    @yyyyyy I agree… sounds a lil suspicous since her estranged husband was the last person with her… truely sad. What has this world coming to

  4. You know it is hard not to jump right to the husband on this, I hear way to much about people getting so upset at a break up that they do very bad things. There is only one person with motive to do this and I hope I am way off with this but nine Times out of ten it’s a family member. My thoughts and pryers go out to her and her family. God bless you Robin

  5. Mike Carter says:

    Concur…she went to her estranged husband’s house to pick up few thing….he conveniently left her alone there…comes home to find her missing. I’d check the Bay nearby and look for fat crabs…external foul play is possible, but unlikely, it’s Stevensville. Suicide is another option…maybe she walked into the Bay, hypothermia set in and she drown. But, unless she was at his house to drop the dog off before jumping in the Bay…the husband seems the likely culprit.

  6. Melody says:

    My deepest sympathies to her loved ones.

  7. Blind Squirrel says:

    Hope all who are jumping to point the finger at the husband consider for a minute that what if he didn’t do it. What if he was working things out with her. Put yourself in his shoes and you know that you didn’t do anything but have no way to prove it until she is found.. How would you handle having your every action and word put under a microscope? Sounds like a terrible situation for everyone involved, the husband, kids, relatives

  8. I think the dog got hypothermia from trying to get in the water to retreive Robin
