Police in Massachusetts are investigating the mysterious disappearance of Trudie Hall, a pregnant Nantucket woman who has been missing for almost a month. Media reports suggest Hall may have been married to two men and leading a double life, but those who know her best say all that matters is getting her home safe.
"It has really been a very treacherous experience for all concerned," the family pastor, the Rev. Donovan Kerr, told AOL News. "We are just waiting right now for the detectives to release whatever their findings are."
Police describe Hall, a 23-year-old native of Jamaica, as black, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen July 27, when she left her Nantucket home for a doctor's appointment scheduled for the next day on Cape Cod. Hall spent the night at Bayside Resort in West Yarmouth, but vanished sometime before her appointment.
Police in Massachusetts are investigating the mysterious disappearance of a pregnant Nantucket woman. Trudie Hall, shown in this undated handout photo, was last seen July 27.
Hall's mother, Vivienne Walker, said it was out of character for her daughter to take off without notifying someone.
"She would never disappear like that," Walker told AOL News. "She was four months pregnant and that's the sad part."
Three days later, the 2009 Toyota Avalon rental car Hall was driving was found abandoned in West Barnstable, roughly three miles from the facility where she had scheduled her appointment.
The Cape Cod Times, citing police sources, reported that blood and bullet casings were found inside the vehicle; however, officials will neither confirm nor deny those reports.
"I don't confirm anything that's in any newspapers," Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe told AOL News.
Upon finding the vehicle, investigators launched an extensive ground and air search for Hall, but were unable to locate her.
Walker said her daughter came to the U.S. from Jamaica when she was 12. She attended high school in Nantucket, was very active in church and worked for a local bank.
"She's a very nice person," Walker said. "Very helpful, very thoughtful and is always running around trying to help in areas that she can. She's a bright young lady and whatever she puts her hand to, she always comes out well."
In the weeks that followed Hall's disappearance, The Times uncovered probate records from Barnstable and Plymouth counties, which allegedly show Hall was married to two men. She reportedly married Doucet McDowe, 31, of Jamaica in April 2009 and Ram Rimal, 41, of Nepal, roughly six months later.
Hall had scheduled an appointment with a divorce attorney, but she disappeared two days before the appointment, the newspaper reported. It remains unclear which of the men she was planning to divorce.
A roommate of Hall's, who did not wish to be identified, told The Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror that she believed Hall was also married to a third man.
Hall's mother declined to comment on her daughter's alleged marriages, but in an interview with Boston news station WBZ, she said she was unaware of either marriage.
"I know my child, she's very secretive. And I'm just sorry that I didn't get deeper into her secrets even more. I have to live with that regret," Walker said.
Walker also told the news station that another woman had been threatening her daughter because of her pregnancy. "Get rid of the baby or you'll get a gunshot," is one of the threats Walker claims her daughter received.
In yet another twist to the bizarre case, WBZ reported that police believe the father of Hall's unborn child is a Centreville, Mass., man named Quiozel Wilson. The CBS affiliate also reported that police recently conducted a search of Wilson's home, during which they seized several items, including a car and motorcycle.
Attempts by AOL News to reach McDowe, Rimal and Wilson were unsuccessful.
Earlier this month, Rimal's attorney, Michael Wilson, told the Boston Herald that his client was with Hall at the Bayside Resort in West Yarmouth on July 27.
"The last time he saw her was when he went to sleep at night," Wilson told the newspaper. "He didn't see her the next day, and doesn't know where she went."
