Robert Beau Garcia was 16 years old when his daughter Pamela was born. Pam was raised by her maternal grandparents. When Pam was around 12 Beau began spending a good deal of time with her on the phone and by making periodic visits to Washington State where Pam lived with the Waldher's. Soon Pam was asking to live with her father in Fayetteville, NC. After an extended visit Pam moved in with her dad Beau. Eighteen months later she is missing.
Pam excelled in school, she was an honor student, 4.0 grade point average. Was popular. Enjoyed debating. Pam had a boyfriend that her dad called, "the classic example of a girl seeking a boy just like her dad"
The night Pam disappeared she had an argument with her father. According to Beau Garcia, Pam's father, he had promised to come home early to do her hair prior to her date and failed to do so. Pam returned from her date and the two fought. According to Pam's boyfriend, Pam called him around 7:30 PM and talked briefly about the argument and other things they normally discuss and he said she did not seem depressed or did not speak of running away or even leaving the house. She told him she would call back at 10 later that night. He never heard from her again.
The next morning Beau Garcia had to force his way into his daughter's locked bedroom and found her gone. She had emptied her backpack that was missing and had apparently packed it with clothing. No note or any explanation of her leaving was left behind.
Pam had earlier attempted suicide, had lost weight and had experienced a personality change according to her grandparents and her father.
Few people other than her father believe she just packed up and left.
The month before Pam's disappearance an-ex girlfriend of Beau's reports to officials that Beau had been mistreating his daughter. He denies the allegations and no charges were filed against him. In an interview with NC Wanted Garcia claims that, "those people who would consider those allegations viable let alone reasonable, should themselves seek counseling, because those speakers of such utterances of such drivel are both torrid, or languished at best, yeah I'm a little terse."
Garcia has refused to cooperate with authorities and take a polygraph exam.
A friend of Mr. Garcia and someone who had seen Pamela just prior to her disappearance said, " Based on the interaction I witnessed between the two I saw no evidence of her being uncomfortable around him or of her indicating any signs of abuse."
The missing backpack taken from Pam's room was found 3 days after she vanished on wooded military land just off an isolated section of Nursery Road in Harnett County, 20 miles from home.
On January 23, 2005, 16 year old Pamela Waldher left her home under mysterious circumstances and her belongings were found in a different county off Nursery Road.
On January 2, 2006, 23 year old Michelle Bullard was abducted from a friend's home at gunpoint and her belongings were found in a different county. A person suspected of her murder claimed to have spent time hiding out off Nursery Road. Michelle's decomposed body was found hidden in the woods of the Cedar Creek community in Cumberland County. The last known documented place Michelle's cell phone was active was in the Bonnie Doone area of Fayetteville near Glen Canyon Drive, the street Pamela lived on the year before.
On January 5, 2006, 19 year old Susan Anderson left home telling her mother that she would be home late because after work she would be going bowling. Susan Anderson never came back home to her mother's house in rural Harnett County which is a couple of miles away from Nursery Road. Natalie Anderson reported her daughter missing on the 8th of January to the Harnett County Sheriff's Office which was during the time of the Michelle Bullard case. In May of 2006 Detective Martin closed the missing person case on Susan Anderson stating that even though no one in law enforcement had seen her face to face, he said had spoken with her by phone and that was proof enough for him. The Anderson family has yet to hear from their daughter. She would have had to have left the place she has lived all her life with just the clothes on her back.
Three disappearances. All within a footprint of the same area of the State. All with a link to Nursery Road. All vanished in January.
