Rankin, TX - Pamela June McDonald was known as a loving wife and mother.
Her cold case began on April 2, 2009 when she was last seen leaving her home in Midland around 1:00 a.m.
Shortly after her disappearance her car was found in Pyote.
Just when authorities have exhausted all leads to find her DNA results for skeletal remains found last year by a rancher confirmed it was Pamela’s.
“She was considered a missing person until remains were found and now we are working on a suspiciousness death,” Investigator with the Upton County Sheriff’s Office Dusty Kilgore said.
He says the circumstances are suspicious.
The vehicle was found in Ward County shortly after she went missing, she went missing out of Midland County and now her remains have been found in Upton County.
Investigators also believe the remoteness of the body from all major roads is also a red flag. She was located 18 miles away from HWY 349.
“It makes it real suspicious remains were found in the location where she was,” he said.
Now investigators have to start all over.
“That way we can track down why she was missing, how she was missing and how she ended up in this county,” he said.
Investigators are hoping someone will come forward with information.
“Hopefully someone will be thinking back to that time and remember something about it,” he said.
There are no named suspects at this time. If you have any information that can help investigators make an arrest.
