    My Missing Sister in Law Cerilla Doyle


    Cerilla Ann Bolton Doyle is my Sister in Law.Cerilla is a MISSING Adult. She is also a Daughter, a Sister, a Mother ,a Sister-in Law, an Aunt and Friend. She has been MISSING from BENTONVILLE,AR Since OCTOBER 27, 2008. Her Family and Friends miss her GREATLY and would LOVE to see her home safely or at least KNOW that she is well and safe.  She had been a Police Officer for most of her life. She enjoyed working with children and was Officer Friendly for the Benton County Sheriffs Office at one time. She was totally " By the Book" when it came to her career as a Police Officer. She does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon and is VERY responsible with her piece! Cerilla went missing from Bentonville, Arkansas on October 27, 2008. The media said that she was suicidal, BUT I HAVE NEVER known Cerilla to be suicidal. She went through a very long and hard ordeal with her husband who had MS and other serious medical problems for SEVERAL years and was confined to a wheelchair. She was a model wife to him during this time even though he could be mean and demanding due to his meds and condition.Cerilla's husband passed in February, 2008 and she adjusted very well. A few months later tho, she became involved with a man who was labeled "The Town Drunk" and was eventually given the ultimatum "leave the Boyfriend or resign your job". As she was receiving the attention that she had lacked for several years in her marriage, she chose to resign her job as Second in Command for the Pea Ridge, Arkansas Police Dept.The boyfriend became controlling and abusive and Cerilla decided she had made a mistake and chose to leave him. As he was driving her home to Bentonville from his house in Ozark, He stopped at the Bentonville Police Dept., went inside and told the Officers that he had an Ex Police Officer in his car that had a gun and was Suicidal! The officers RAN outside, saw Cerilla walking away and told her to stop and put her hands in the air! Cerilla complied and told the Officers that ALL she wanted was to go HOME! This HAD TO BE SO HUMILIATING to Cerilla! To have the Police search you, take away your weapon that has been been on your side for most of your adult life, and detain you until your Daughter came to pick you up, is the MOST DEGRADING and HUMILIATING thing that could be done to my sister!She disappeared the NEXT DAY! And since that day this case has grown cold. When my wife Lori and I, who live in another state, became aware that NOTHING was being done in Cerilla's case, we opened a Facebook page and received help from MANY people and HOPE can be spread to the families and friends of Missing Persons. Thank You so much for your support and help in raising the awareness of Missing and Exploited Children and Adults! Sincerely, Chuck and Lori Bolton PLEASE PLEASE help us find Cerilla. Thank You
