Details of Disappearance
Mickey, 42, was diving with two friends early Saturday afternoon near Frying Pan Shoals, about 30 miles southeast of Bald Head Island. His friends lost sight of him in rough waters around noon on June 18th, 2005. According to his diving partners, he was last seen on the surface about 50 feet from his boat, “Details.” A strong cross current swept him and his dive partner northwest of the boat during a free ascent after they failed to find the anchor line at the end of the 110 ft dive. One partner was recovered by the Coast Guard 9 hours later, 4 miles northwest of the dive site, and the third man made it back to the dive boat. Greg ditched his BC and tank in an attempt to make the swim to boat. Divers recovered Greg’s weight belt on the bottom, open, 4 days later, but his body was never recovered. Greg was an advanced certification diver in a full wetsuit, mask, fins and snorkle, so close to the boat, so what happened to him remains a mystery. The US Coast Guard conducted 40 search missions that covered more than 1,000 square miles with aircraft and boats. Others have conducted private searches for Mickey as well.

Living memorial heads to sea

August 04, 2007

MOREHEAD CITY – The final journey of a former Carteret County fishing vessel will be to the bottom of the sea, where it will serve as an artificial reef and memorial to a scuba diver lost at sea two years ago.

The 180-foot Coastal Mariner once used by Beaufort Fisheries was rechristened the Captain Greg Mickey by his friends and family Friday in Morehead City and is scheduled to be sunk today off the coast of Wrightsville Beach.

In its resting place on the ocean floor near Frying Pan Shoals, it will transform into a reef full of sea life; a living memorial to the husband, father and friend they say lived life to the fullest and loved the sea.

“This is a way to give back to the one thing Greg really loved,” said friend Donna Starling of Wilmington, a member of the committee that formed to create a lasting memorial to MicKey.

Mickey was lost as sea on June 18, 2005, in a diving incident near Frying Pan Shoals. According to accounts on the committee’s Web site, he was last seen by his diving partners about 50 feet from his boat, Details.

A strong current swept him and his dive partner, Andrew Illobre, northwest of the boat during a free ascent after they failed to find the anchor line at the end of the 110-foot dive.

Illobre was found by the Coast Guard nine hours later, but MicKey’s body was never recovered.

“It was such a great loss. We needed something to memorialize him,” Starling said.

A tribute at sea seemed most fitting for a man who was an experienced diver and avid fishermen, but exactly what to do evolved after exploring various options.

Renaming a reef could be difficult, and an initial idea of sinking a reef ball with a plaque in MicKey’s memory didn’t seem like enough, Starling said.

After talking with Jim Francesconi, artificial reef coordinator with the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, the committee decided to pay tribute to MicKey by giving him a reef of his own.

And with no structures yet at the permitted artificial reef site AR400, the dive site will long bear MicKey’s name.

“When people go diving, they’ll say they are going to dive on the Greg MicKey,” Starling said.

With the support of the Onslow Bay Artificial Reef and Long Bay Artificial Reef Association and the Division of Marine Fisheries, she said, the Capt. Greg MicKey Committee has successfully completed a $75,000 project.

The Coastal Mariner was taken to Norfolk, where a crew has worked for the past 15 months to clean and prepare the vessel for sinking. It was towed to Morehead City for the rechristening and was scheduled to leave Friday night for the artificial reef site.

Plans are to flood the vessel this morning.

MicKey’s widow, Julia, and Illobre, will make a dive at the site after the vessel’s sinking, according to the Capt. Greg MicKey Web site.

Francesconi said the new artificial reef will be a living memorial that supports marine life for years to come. And a reminder of what can be accomplished when people join together.

“This is an example of what people can do when they want to do it,” he said.

Woman missing for nine years, family looks for answers

Posted:Apr 19, 2010 1:29 PM CDT

Posted by Debra Worley – email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Almost nine years ago, a Wilmington woman disappeared from the area after last being seen dropping her daughter off at home.

According to authorities, 47-year-old Pamela Bradshaw was last seen Sept. 20, 2001 on Red Cross Street in Wilmington.  She was seen talking to someone in a white vehicle that was idling in the middle of the street.  She has never been heard from again.

There are few details available in Bradshaw’s case, but officials know she is HIV positive and most likely hasn’t received medical treatment.

Bradshaw’s family came to the Wilmington area Monday in hopes of reopening her case to find answers in her disappearance.

Bradshaw is an African American woman with a surgical scar on her left breast.  Her molars have been removed and she may use the alias name Denise Williams.  She stands 5’9″ tall and weighs around 110 pounds.

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact the Wilmington Police Department (910) 343-3645.


Daughter continues search for missing mother 10 years later

By Ana Ribeiro
Ana.Ribeiro@StarNewsOnline.com

Published: Monday, April 19, 2010 at 3:06 p.m.

Allder’s intuition told her she should come to Wilmington, and on Monday she was here to talk to people who knew her mother and to detectives, to give out fliers and try to draw attention back to her case. Her mother, Pamela Bradshaw, has been missing since September 2000, and information is scarce.

“I just felt like she was there, like I needed to come down no matter how long I was going to stay and try to get some help,” said Allder, a 34-year-old mother of two. She said she doesn’t believe Bradshaw is alive, and is looking for closure.

What the CUE Center for Missing Persons has heard is that Bradshaw was last seen near Red Cross Street, leaning into the passenger side of a blue Cadillac-style vehicle with a white top. Bradshaw was 41 when she disappeared.

The Wilmington-based victim advocacy center and its founder, Monica Caison, have worked to keep the case alive. A case like this is especially tough for those affected this time of year, with Mothers’ Day approaching, Caison said.

Allder says it’s bizarre to look at the billboards of missing persons and realize it’s happened to her family.

On Monday, she clutched a flyer with her mother’s picture as she spoke to cameras in the parking lot of a Wilmington hotel. As tears overpowered Allder, Caison came to her side and gently asked if she’d like to take a break.

The break didn’t last. A reporter with a notepad followed Allder as she sat down, and asked what her mother was like.

She said that growing up, she kept going back and forth between her mother and grandmother, as Bradshaw’s drug addiction “overpowered her being a mother.” But Allder says she always saw the good in her mother.

“She was great,” Allder said. “If she had 50 cents, she was going to give you a quarter. … She was outgoing, she was fun, caring, loving. …Not a mean bone in her body.”

The last time Allder saw her mother was when she drove her home to Seventh and Red Cross streets on Sept. 20, 2000, after Bradshaw had spent time with her grandchild. Following her mother’s disappearance, Allder moved away but has been back to Wilmington several times since, hoping to find some answers.

Bradshaw is described as black, 5’9″, 110 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. She has a surgical scar on her left breast, her molars have been removed and she is HIV-positive, according to the CUE Center’s Web site. Bradshaw may use the alias Denise Williams.

Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Wilmington police at 343-3600. In case of a sighting, the best bet is to call 911, police say.
