Virginia Alice Welch
Missing since July 12, 1982 from Roanoke, Roanoke County, Virginia
Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Welch moved in with a friend in Roanoke and that was the last time her family heard from her. After three weeks of not hearing from her daughter, the mother went to the place Virginia was supposed to be living and was told that she had walked off carrying a plastic bag. However, the roommate couldn't seem to remember what week she left.
A couple of weeks later the family went to the Roanoke Police and a detective was assigned to the case. However the police never came up with any leads.
Welch had been enlisted the U.S. Army for a few months. She had gotten out on a medical discharge several years before she disappeared.
