Arrest made in hoax case of missing mother and infant in Laurinburg NC

LAURINBURG, NC-

On Friday, February 1, 2019,

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office arrested Danilla Mitzia “Missy” Bethea, on 10 counts of Felony Obtaining Property by False Pretenses and 1 count of Felony False Reports to a Law Enforcement Agency Pertaining to a Missing Child. Bethea is 30, and resides off of East Side Drive, Rockingham, NC.

Scotland Co Sheriff Office

On Thursday, January 31, 2019, the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Unit received a report from two female parties, mother and daughter, who believed there was a female infant child, born to a female named April Morrison. The reports initially indicated that Morrison was being held against her will and provided information that led investigators to suspect may be victims of human trafficking or prostitution. The report initially suggested that the infant child was sold for monetary value or in exchange for elicit narcotics either by Morrisons consent or by force.

During the investigation, investigators interviewed Bethea on January 31, 2019 and again this day, February 1, 2019. Bethea stated Morrison was safe, and that her baby was in the care of unknown third parties and was also safe. Investigators identified inconsistencies that gave concern to the safety of this infant child, and the legitimacy of the care or caretakers who allegedly would possess the child. Investigators believed the child was in danger, and was possibly sold or exchanged to parties engaged in elicit prostitution or human trafficking.

Upon further investigation, investigators determined that the statements provided by Bethea were allegedly false. April Morrison was a fictional character and there was no infant child named Lee Ann Morrison. These false statements were allegedly made and provided for the purposes of allegedly receiving money, from the reporting party, who believed she was supporting an infant child in need, and one whom she believed she would gain custody or guardianship over. The image of the infant child provided was an image obtained allegedly through social media.

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office takes every single report of a missing person and/ or child seriously. The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office is trained and ready to respond to, and act swiftly and thoroughly in all reports of any person who may be suspected of being victim to human trafficking or, sexual servitude. The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office believes that in any report of a missing person and, especially any missing juvenile or infant child regardless of the nature of how they came to be missing, is extremely important and a matter that must be addressed immediately and as expediently as possible. This includes information sharing, local, state and federal resources, and information sharing with all available media outlets. This ensures maximizing the potential that a missing person, and especially a child, could be found safely by law enforcement and search and rescue personnel.

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office extends a sincere and deep gratitude to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Rockingham Police Department, Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, Fayetteville Police Department, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office would also like to thank the media outlets and reporters who worked hard, and were patient and enduring in their efforts to collect information and provide it to the public as quickly as possible. Your dedication is important in sharing vital information especially in this case.

Bethea has received a $100,000 secured bond. Bethea is being held at the Scotland County Detention Facility.

(WTVD) reported update:

A woman and her infant believed to be missing and in danger in Scotland County have been found safe, the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office said Friday night.

This was all a ploy to try to obtain money from donations, said Scotland County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jessica Sadonikov.

A woman, Danilla Bethea, has been arrested.

Bethea is being taken to the Scotland County Jail.



The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help finding a missing woman and her infant daughter who investigators say they believe to be in danger.

Leann Morrison, 2 week old infant #MISSING

The sheriff’s office’s Criminal Investigation Unit posted the call for help on its Facebook page shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday after receiving a report of a missing person/child.

At this time, the investigation remains in the very early infancy stages as we seek to collect and gather information.

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office, is in search of a Hispanic female known as, April Morrison. April is a Hispanic female, possibly Puerto Rican or similar, and speaks both English and Spanish. April was reported to have arrived in the Richmond County area, approximately 8 months pregnant. April gave birth to a female infant child recently, and the infant is believed to be in danger and not in the care of her mother. The agency has not positively identified the infant, and has reasonable suspicion that April is operating under an alias. April was believed to be staying in local motels or hotels, between Richmond County, Scotland County and Fayetteville, NC.

If you have any information pertaining to the whereabouts of “April Morrison” and her female infant child approximately 2-3 weeks old, please contact our office immediately. Your report can be anonymous if you wish. April is reported currently as possibly being deceased or having been removed from the Scotland County and or Richmond County Area possibly under fear or coercion.

Overnight search continues in Craven County for 3 year old Casey Hathaway

The search for 3-year-old Casey Hathaway continues tonight in Craven County, North Carolina.  The Craven County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation to find Casey.  He was reported missing on Jan. 22, 2019, by a relative. 

Casey had been playing outside the home with two other young children (ages 5 & 8) he is related to (sibling and a cousin) and he did not come back inside with them.  A relative in the home searched for Casey and when they were unable to find him, called 911.  Craven County Sheriff’s Deputies responded within minutes.  An intense search began and has expanded by the minute.  Today, hundreds of professional searchers and civilian volunteers walked through rough terrain around the home to try and locate Casey. 

Sheriff Chip Hughes said this afternoon, “Volunteers would soon be sent home for the night due to safety concerns.  Professionally trained searchers will continue to work overnight.” Additional search assets will return in the morning.  Volunteers should meet at the staging area at 8:00 tomorrow morning at New Haven Church located at 2755 Aurora Road, Ernul, North Carolina.  

While on the ground in the area this afternoon, The Onslow Beat was fortunate to talk to several people who live nearby and volunteers from other areas. During one conversation, a source who wishes to remain anonymous alleged that a family member of his had been questioned in the disappearance of Casey Hathaway last night for several hours by law enforcement. During one press conference today, Sheriff Hughes stated there’s no reason to believe otherwise at this time beyond a missing child case.

Anyone living near Toler Road in Ernul, North Carolina, where Casey was last seen should check their own properties to assist us to locate Casey.  Casey is white, with blonde hair and brown eyes.  He weighs 25 pounds and is 28 inches tall. If you see Casey or have information to help us locate him, call the tip line at 252-636-6703 or the Craven County SO at 252-633-0498.
