As speculation mounts about the disappearance of Kelly Rothwell, rumors have swirled about the possible involvement of her then -boyfriend, David Perry. It is widely thought that he, at the very least, has firsthand knowledge of her movements when she returned to her condo the afternoon of March 12th. At the most extreme, it is surmised that he killed her in a fit of rage as she tried to break up with him, disposed of her body somewhere, and took off for Elmira, New York, his childhood home, where he remains to this day.
If that widely held scenario is accepted by most, it then begs to question, where is Kelly Rothwell?
The straight-line route from Indian Rocks Beach to Elmira New York is approximately 1039 miles. On Wednesday night, Monica Caisson from the CUE Center for Missing Persons in Wilmington, N.C. will be arriving with cadaver dogs and a host of volunteers to begin the search for Kelly Rothwell in the Florida area. She and her teams of searchers will develop a perimeter and work outwards from that, concentrating on cell phone tower locations along the route from Florida, north towards New York. The CUE will search only Florida at this point but may expand the search as necessary.
Kelly Rothwell’s cell phone and purse were never found and were not among her belongings left in the condo, according to her mother, Nancy Rothwell, who came down to Florida from Baltimore to recover her daughters personal effects the week after Kelly went missing.
The question still lingers... Where is Kelly Rothwell?
