HARTWICK – A week after 48-year-old Roxanne Shipman-Hull of Hartwick disappeared, her family says they will not stop searching for her, Kathy Shipman, the woman’s stepmother, told WKTV today.
Roxanne was last seen by her boyfriend around 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, and her family says on Tuesday at 3 p.m., her phone pinged in Plainfield State Land at Adams Pond. Shipman-Hull’s family and sheriff’s deputies searched the area of the pond and could not find her.
According to the sheriff’s office, she left a cryptic message saying “goodbye,” but didn’t indicate where she was going.
Shipman-Hull is 5-feet 8-inches tall and about 102 pounds with blonde hair. She has her dog, Penelope, with her. Penelope is wearing a Giants leather collar.
She left her Hartwick home in a gray Honda-CRV with the license plate HZN-9505. The vehicle has New York plates with Grateful Dead bears on the back windows and Giants license plate brackets.
The family says she has ties to family in Georgia, and also has a history of leaving but would always keep her phone on.
Law enforcement has stopped searching the area of Adams Pond, but private searches continue.
Anyone with information should call the Otsego County Sheriff’s Department at 607-547-4271.
