She was last heard from on July 20 and is described as 4’10 in height, weighing 120 pounds and having brown eyes and brown hair.

Her family told investigators that her disappearance is “strange” and her lack of contact is “unexpected.”

“It’s been so long now that I’ve talked to her or anything and she’s never went this long without talking to me, never,” Lisa Cloyd’s son Chris Barnett said.

Barnett said he hasn’t heard from her since the 20th and he and his wife are trying to hold it together for their children and his sister, Wendy.

“I ain’t been able to you know sleep or anything, I’m thinking about it all the time. Everything goes through my head, is she okay, where would she be, why ain’t she contacted me,” Barnett said. He said his mother Lisa doesn’t have a mean bone in her body and is a loving mother and grandmother.

The sheriff’s office released a second news release Monday afternoon saying that they are now searching for  Lisa Maria Cloyd’s husband — Curtis Cloyd, 50.

Sheriff Ed Graybeal said that Curtis Cloyd is currently a person of interest in the case.

According to the release, Curtis Cloyd is wanted for reckless endangerment because of an encounter at a home on the previous day that involved a handgun. Graybeal said Curtis Cloyd got away from investigators through a back door in the home.

When we asked Sheriff Graybeal if he believes Lisa is in danger he said, “right now we have to, until we find out something different we have to consider her in danger because we don’t know anything,” Graybeal said. Graybeal added that Curtis Cloyd has been arrested at least six times in the past, convicted of two domestic assaults involving Lisa Cloyd and he’s had two orders of protection served on him from his wife.

Graybeal said they do not know if Curtis Cloyd is involved in his wife’s disappearance but they want to talk to him.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Curtis Cloyd is asked to not approach him, but is asked to call the sheriff’s office’s Criminal Investigation Division at 788-1414, or call your local law enforcement agency.

Additionally, anyone with information about this case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at the same number, 788-1414.
