LINDSIDE, W. Va (WVVA)-- Police in Monroe County are searching for a missing mother and daughter.

Corporal S. S. Keaton with the West Virginia State Police Union Detachment told WVVA the mother, 32-year-old Melanie June Pyne, and daughter, 1-year-old Hannah Marie Pyne have been missing since August 16th.

Melanie is described as 5'6", 215 lbs, with blonde hair and blue eyes. She wears eyeglasses and has a barbed wire tattoo on her upper left arm.

Hannah is 30 inches tall, 22 lbs, and blonde with blue eyes.

Police say Melanie may be driving a baby blue 2009 Toyota Camry with WV registration number 5PX947.

The pair was last seen in Lindside at their home on Pine Grove Road on Friday August 16th at 4 AM.

Police are looking into Melanie's bank statements and have seen charges from Daytona, FL all the way up the coast, ending at a Kroger in Raleigh County, WV. That was on August 21st. After that, the trail runs cold.

Keaton said Melanie told her coworkers she wanted to go to the beach, but her family told police it is uncharacteristic of her to be gone for so long without any communication with loved ones. They are worried something may have happened to the two as they returned home.

Keaton added there is no knowledge Melanie had a mental condition, or had had any traumatic life events leading to her fleeing from home.

Police can not rule out suspicious activity surrounding their disappearance, and asks the public to call their local law enforcement or the Union WV State Police at 304-772-5100 if they have any information.
