The family of the 49-year-old pregnant woman who was found after disappearing for almost a week released a statement Tuesday saying they’re no longer expecting a new addition to the family.
Deputies located missing North Carolina woman Carrie Bradshaw-Crother at a gas station Monday after her ATM card was used at a nearby CVS, WSOC reported. The mother – who disappeared one hour before her scheduled C-section for a high-risk pregnancy – was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
“I was very relieved, it was a joy to find out Carrie was okay and alive and soon to be safe,” her brother Drew Bradshaw told WSOC. At the time, Bradshaw declined to comment on the state of his sister’s pregnancy. “Carrie is doing okay,” he said. “She’s in the hospital still being evaluated. We are unable to release a whole lot of information about that.”
On Tuesday, a statement was posted to Drew Bradshaw’s Facebook page on her family’s behalf. “While it is unfortunate, we no longer expect a new addition to our family and ask for your continued prayers,” the statement said.
Bradshaw-Crowther is currently in hospital receiving “much needed medical care,” the statement continued, but the family declined to disclose further details about her pregnancy. “We feel that releasing any more information should be in Carrie’s discretion after she has the opportunity to heal.”
