Release from the Waynesboro Police Department:
The Waynesboro Police Department is requesting assistance in locating a missing adult female.
Melissa Torgenson who also goes by the name Melissa Robbins was first reported missing by her sister, who resides in California, to the Ventura County, CA. Sheriff’s Office on August 24th, 2016. Ventura County authorities notified the Waynesboro Police Department of this missing person on August 29th, 2016 due to her last known address being Waynesboro, VA.
The department immediately opened an investigation and entered Melissa into both state and national data bases as a missing person, however to date no contact has been made. In addition we have been able to contact known family members and it has been determined that none of these individuals has heard from Melissa since early July of this year by phone.
At this time there is no reason to suspect foul play, however the length of time Melissa has been without contact raises concerns for her wellbeing.
Melissa is 32 years of age, 5’7’, 170 lbs., with brown hair and hazel eyes. The vehicle she was last known to be operating was a 2013 gray Honda Coupe bearing Virginia Tag VMB-8058.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Jamie Dunn at 540-942-6543.
