Charleston County Sheriff's Office investigators and volunteers with the Community United Effort (CUE) Center will be searching land off of Freeman Bridge Road in Easley on Saturday in connection with the March disappearance of Marjorie Gayle McCaffrey, according to a CCSO statement.
Questions have long swirled around where her body might be, but most search efforts so far have focused on Charleston County locations. The Sheriff's Office is hoping to rule out this site in Easley as a possible hiding place.
McCaffrey was reported missing on March 18 by her husband Bob McCaffrey. In May Sheriff Al Cannon held a press conference to announce that Bob McCaffrey was officially considered a suspect in his wife's disappearance.
The Sheriff's Office launched several searches of the area near the McCaffrey's home on Limestone Boulevard, off of Ashley River Road, but has yet to find her remains.
Bob McCaffrey told investigators that he and Gayle had argued the night she disappeared, but that she was still at the house when he left that evening to drive to Easley. Bob McCaffrey was stopped for speeding around 2 a.m. Sunday, March 18 in Traveler's Rest. He said she was gone when he returned home the next morning, but had left a note. Cannon has disputed the authenticity of the letter.
In August the CUE Center put up several billboards in Charleston County about the case, and asking anyone with information on the case to contact the Sheriff's Office.
