UPDATED – 6-27-19 – Bethany Beach, state and other local police agencies along with members of the public have searched the area from Bethany Beach to the Maryland State line extensively – by foot, boat and by air.  There has been no sign of 70 year old Linda Bravo or her white, 2011 Mercedes SUV.  Police tracked her car by camera to the area of Evergreen Road in South Bethany.  Her car has not turned up on any other cameras to the south or the tag trackers in Ocean City.  The last ping of her cell phone was in the same area of South Bethany and WGMD has learned that Apple has provided law enforcement the information they requested, but it led to no new leads.

Bravo was physically last seen on Thursday June 13th at Sea Colony East.  Attempts to contact her via vehicle and/or cell phone have been unsuccessful.


UPDATED – 6-23-19 – A search was hosted by Fenwick Island Police Saturday.  Family, friends and concerned citizens turned out to help look for Linda Bravo or her white SUV.  Fenwick Police tell WGMD that nothing was turned up.  Police are asking anyone with personal residential surveillance to look at the video before recording over it for any sign of Bravo or her SUV.  If you see the SUV  – or Bravo – contact Bethany Beach Police at 302-539-1000 or Crime Stoppers at 800-Tp-3333.


UPDATED – 6-21-19 – An extensive search has been conducted for 70 year old Linda Bravo of Bethany Beach.  She was last seen just before 1am Friday, June 14th leaving the home of a friend at Sea Colony.  Bravo never returned to her home and neighbors the following day asked police to check on her welfare.  Capt. Darin Cathell tells WGMD’s Jake Smith that they were able to trace her car on cameras along Route 1 to South Bethany – they also were able to ping her cell phone.  However, in South Bethany they lost contact with her vehicle and cell phone.  They have searched for Bravo on foot, boat and by helicopter with no sign of her vehicle – an accident scene or her.  Police are asking anyone who has cameras along Route 1 or in the area to look at the video and if you spot a vehicle like her 2011, white Mercedes SUV, to contact Sgt Brandon Elliott at 302-539-1000.
