Details of Disappearance
Melvia Roarx, a 28-year-old mother of four, was last seen on June 4, 2013. Melvia was last seen leaving Horse Branch General store at 8:23 P.M. after purchasing soft drinks for her family. The last known image of Melvia Roarx was captured on the store surveillance video. She was seen getting into her van and heading in the direction of her home.
Her 2000 Dodge Caravan was found abandoned the following day in Bullitt County, between the 109 and 110 mile marker of I 65N, just south of Sheperdsville, Ky. The driver's seat was pushed back, as if a taller person had been driving. Her purse was in the car, but her wallets were gone.
The Grayson County woman was likely the victim of foul play, according to authorities. The family of Melvia Roarx has always maintained that she would never have left her four young children behind.
