    Melissa Moreland left her father's home on October 23, 1987, and disappeared. She was last seen late that night at the former High's gas station in Paw Paw. Her parents believed she would be spending the night with a friend. Melissa lived with her parents in Hampshire County near Paw Paw. She would come and go from the home, so some time had passed before she was initially reported missing.

    (Times-News/John D. Smith)Found bones may be missing girl’s PAW PAW, W.Va. (AP) — Law enforcement officials are hoping that bones and teeth found in an animal pen will shed light on the disappearance of a Hampshire County woman missing for two years. The remains, discovered along W.Va. 9 in Paw Paw, have been shipped to the state police lab in Charleston for examination. Melissa Moreland, 21, has been missing since Oct. 27, 1987, when she was last seen with some friends at a Paw Paw area convenience store, officials say. Morgan County Sheriff Bill Spitzer said officers have uncovered little information about Moreland’s disappearance. “Everybody in Paw Paw knows this girl, and I imagine there’s a lot of people who know where she is,” Spitzer said.Rekindle being investigated

    Tips to police on Paw Paw woman's disappearance never panned out

    By JENNIFER FITCH | waynesboro@herald-mail.com | April 22, 2013

    Melissa Moreland's father died not knowing what happened to his 21-year-old daughter who left his home Oct. 23, 1987, and disappeared. Moreland, who today would be 46 years old, was last seen late that night at the former High's gas station in Paw Paw. Her parents believed she would be spending the night with a friend. Over the years, several law enforcement agencies working on the case have investigated a variety of tips. Some of those tips claimed the woman is alive, while others pointed to possible places her remains could be found.
