Local News

DONALSONVILLE, Ga. (WDHN) — After nearly two years, the remains of Sharon Crawford, who went missing after Hurricane Michael, has been found.

Sharon Crawford’s family has waited for answers, only to receive an answer that no family ever wants to hear.

“The remains of Sharon Crawford has been found dismembered in a field just out of city limits off Burlane Road,” according to Police Chief Woodrow Blue.

He hopes this will give relief to her mother who is still in pain.

“I’m upset and disappointed in the police station, and I miss my daughter and her kids miss her,” said Shebra Crawford, Sharon Crawford’s mother.

The remains were first discovered Feb. 11, 2020, but questions still remain.

Over 1500 women have went missing in Georgia, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The women in Donalsonville said situations like this just don’t happen.

“No, it’s very uncommon,” resident Kim Merrifield said. “It’s not common at all for somebody to go missing like that.”

“No, I don’t feel safe because it makes me feel like when I walk out the door that you don’t know if someone is gonna grab you or if you go to the grocery store or whatever so no it’s not a comfortable feeling,” resident Barbara Buchanan said.

Police are still waiting for an autopsy report to find out more.
