A search sparked by a tip about a dream regarding the disappearance of Gayle McCaffrey came up empty this week. Charleston County Sheriff’s officials sent two investigators to Newberry County on Wednesday to search with dogs for any clues related to the case. The search was initiated based on a tip from McCaffrey’s family because one of them had a dream that she might be located there, sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said.

Investigators did not find anything though. The case has no connection to Newberry County, other than the dream, Brady said.

“We follow up on leads and will continue to do so and have done so since the beginning of the case,” Brady said.

McCaffrey, 36, was reported missing March 18 by her husband, Bob McCaffrey.

The night before, family members said the two had a disagreement during a St. Patrick’s Day dinner. He then took a trip to Easley to visit a love interest, but the woman turned him down, according to authorities.

Shortly after her disappearance, Sheriff’s investigators announced they were investigating the disappearance as a “homicide.”

Several searches have taken place around the state including in Easley and near the couple’s home in West Ashley.

McCaffrey’s sister Debbie Pearson was granted custody of the McCaffrey’s children last year, where they currently remain.
