Abby Lynn Patterson was visiting her mother in Lumberton, North Carolina, the town she had grown up in. On September 5, 2017 She told her Mom she was going out to run some errands and would be back in an hour. Abby has not been seen or heard from since. Looking back through the town’s history, a pattern of young women vanishing in this manner emerges. Some women have turned up, deceased, in abandoned homes and on abandoned properties. Other young ladies, like Abby herself, are still missing. This leaves the community wondering – are these happenings a coincidence or is a predator stalking the community?
