“ We’ve talked to most of her family members, and the ones we’ve talked to haven’t heard from her,” said Lt. Scott Eanes with the Danville Police Department.
Keiling, 57, was reported missing on Wednesday by concerned members of her apartment staff who had not seen her in a few days. Eanes said she was last seen walking along the Dan River, but no one has been able to “pin down” an exact time she was last seen.
Police found Keiling’s apartment to be well-kept with no signs of a struggle. Her keys and cell phone were found in her apartment, and Eanes said police do not suspect foul play. Police have been in contact with Keiling’s family in Manassas and spoken with most of the residents of the Bridge Street apartment, Eanes said.
On Wednesday afternoon, police contacted the Danville Life Saving Crew Special Operations crew who put boats in the water to search the river. Eanes said they entered the water at Angler’s Park and went past the back of Keiling’s building.
Eanes said rescuers searched all areas that were searchable — including river banks — and came up with nothing. There is a small creek behind Keiling’s Bridge Street apartment that runs into the Dan River, and Eanes said rescuers searched there as well.
Anyone with information with Keiling's whereabouts is asked to call the Danville Police Department at (434) 799-5111.
