FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Update on Beloved Missing Goochland Woman
Goochland, Virginia January 7, 2017
Michele Wright, a favorite Goochland area business owner and recent contestant on Chopped, was found late Wednesday night January 4th after going missing around 10:30 that morning. The community was alerted when her sons reached out through social media to ask for help locating their mom that afternoon. The boys request took on a life of its own as missing person fliers and information surged across the internet. Friends rapidly formed a “head quarters” at her shop, The Blonde Butcher Baker, to handle all of the information coming and going while scores of folks took to the roads looking for their dear friend. A missing person’s report was filed with Goochland County Sherriff’s Department, alerting Goochland and surrounding areas to the situation.
Michele was found in her vehicle in Hanover County after having suffered a seizure, run off the road, and being nearly unconscious in the elements for many hours, unable to call for help. She was hospitalized and is being well cared for while doctors work to get her medically stable and on the path to recovery as soon as possible. Michele is making great progress and is surrounded by a loving support network.
The outpouring of concern and love and offers of support for this amazing and talented lady and her sons has been incredible! There has been a wave of outreach… friends, family, near and far…trying to help in any way they can. Along with the wave of concern, there has also been a wave of expenses building, both medical and day to day survival expenses. Michele and her sons rely on her small business’s income entirely, and while she is getting well, her business will have to remain closed until further notice.
This family needs our help so they focus on healing and getting well.
There has been an account set up through Essex Bank to do just that. You can make donations to the Michelle Wright fund in any amount directly at any Essex Bank branch location. Or, donations can be directly mailed to their Goochland Office for deposit at P.O. Box 697, Goochland, Virginia 23063.
