STEVENSVILLE, Md.- Maryland State Police and sheriff's deputies are continuing their investigation into the suspicious disappearance of a Queen Anne's County woman who has been missing for the past two days. 

The woman is identified as 51-year-old Robin L. Pope of Stevensville. 

She is described as white, 5-foot-4, 105 pounds and with brown hair.

Police said that until December, Pope had been living with her husband, Wayne A. Pope Jr., at  a home on 100 block of Beach Road.  The couple separated in December and Robin Pope had been staying at a home owned by a female friend on Kent Island. 

Police said that shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday, March 2, the county's Emergency Operations Center received a call from Wayne Pope, who reported suspicious circumstances involving his wife. 

When sheriff's office deputies responded to Wayne Pope's home, he told them his wife Robin had come to the home late Friday night to retrieve some belongings.  After she arrived, he left the home. 

When he returned to the home early Saturday morning, he found his wife's black 2011 Infinity still parked in the driveway, but she was not at the home.  He also said that his dog, a Great Dane, was missing.  Deputies found Robin Pope's keys, purse, credit cards and cash still in her vehicle. 

Deputies entered Robin Pope into the National Crime Information Center database as a missing person and information was forwarded to area law enforcement agencies. 

They interviewed relatives and friends as they continued the search for Pope. Authorities said a deputy responded to a home in the vicinity of the Pope's home, where their dog was found dead near the pier, with obvious trauma to the upper torso.  The dog's body has been taken to the Queen Anne's County Humane Society pending further investigation. 

On Saturday evening, the Sheriff's Office contacted the MSP Criminal Investigation Bureau and requested troopers take the lead in this investigation.  Troopers from the State Police Homicide Unit and Criminal Enforcement Division responded and have been working the investigation since.

Investigators and crime scene technicians are continuing to examine the location where Robin Pope was last seen.

With the help of marine units from the Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Sheriff's Office, the state police dive team will be conducting a search of the Chesapeake Bay in the area of the scene on Sunday.

Anyone with information about Robin Pope is urged to contact police at the Centreville Barrack at (410) 758-1101.  Callers may remain confidential.
