PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Prince George County Police Department is searching for a mother and her teenage daughter who both went missing over the weekend.
Martha Bates and Mary Bates were reportedly last seen driving a silver 2015 Nissan Rogue — with the Virginia license plate, “UVL9169” — in Monterey around 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 9.
According to authorities, the missing pair were believed to be traveling to Camp Carlo in Huttonsville, West Virginia. This behavior is “out of character” for the mother and daughter and their disappearance does not seem related to a custody dispute, according to police.
Martha Bates is a 42-year-old white woman. According to authorities, she is 5-foot-3-inches tall and weighs approximately 345 pounds with brown eyes, glasses and brown hair.
Mary Bates is a 15-year-old white girl. Authorities describe her as 5-foot tall, weighing approximately 110 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information that could lead to the whereabouts of Mary and Martha Bates or have seen the pair during their travels is encouraged to contact the Prince George County Police Department at 804-733-2773.
