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

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.
