OPA-LOCKA, Fla. (WSVN) — Multiple agencies are conducting a search for a South Florida woman who has been missing for three years and feared dead.
Lynda Meier disappeared June 4, 2010 and now new evidence has drawn police and rescue teams to 1790 Service Road in Opa-Locka, an area just a few miles away from where she was last seen. Police plan to remain on the scene throughout the evening and return tomorrow to continue the search.
Sharon Solano said she was surprised to hear about the latest development in the search for her friend. “If she’s gone, I just hope she didn’t suffer. I hope she didn’t suffer because she didn’t deserve to suffer. She was just a nice person, very good to my children, very good to strangers and animals.”
Police said two days after Meier, 40, went missing, her red Cadillac Escalade was found in good condition.
Police have named two felons as persons of interest in Meier’s disappearance, Antwan Kennedy and Dallas King. Both of them are currently serving life sentences for armed robbery.
Authorities said Kennedy, who is a long-time friend of Meier, was the last person she talked to before withdrawing money from an ATM and disappearing.
Hallandale Beach Police Chief Dwayne Flournoy said this new search comes after they re-interviewed people involved in this case. “Recent developments in these cases have indicated that Lynda Meier’s remains or her body may have been placed somewhere in this area,” he said. “There is an individual that lives in a residence that said that Dallas King showed him Lynda Meier’s driver license and credit card on the same night that she disappeared.”
No one has been charged in Meier’s disappearance.
