Investigation Continues After Body of Missing Kent Island Woman Found in Bay

Posted: Updated:

STEVENSVILLE, Md. - Yellow ribbons were placed along Beach Road in Stevensville in hopes that 51-year-old Robin Pope would return home safely. But her neighbor Janis Paulos, who was once hopeful, is now filled with grief.

"Mostly the people in the neighborhood are very sad to hear that this was Robin we were all hoping that she would be found alive it's just a terrible thing," Paulos said.

Police said Pope's body was found along the Kent Island shoreline Saturday. Paulos said it was her neighbor who located the body.

"A neighbor across the street was fishing and her body was in the water and he called the police," Paulos said. "We didn't know at the time that it was her of cours,  but it's a really sad situation that this happened and it happened right here."

Mick Moroney has lived at the Kent Island Estates for 11 years. He said the community is devastated.

"It's unimaginable. I guess the only one consolation is that the lady's remains have been found, but it's an unbelievable terrible situation," Moroney said.  

While neighbors now have more information about Pope's disappearance, one big question remains unanswered.

"We hope to find out what happened to her," said Paulos.

"Hopefully what happened will come out," said Moroney.
