    WOODSTOCK, Ga. - A husband is desperate to find his wife, who disappeared more than a week ago.

    Woodstock police are searching for Robin Newton. She was last seen July 30 when she left to visit a friend.

    Newton was last seen driving in a green minivan.

    “This is just totally out of character for her," her husband Wayne Newton told Channel 2’s Justin Wilfon.

    Newton said he is concerned about her well-being. 

    "She told me she was going to help a friend, and she'd be at Lake Hartwell, and she might stay a night or two," he said. 


    Newton said the friend she was supposed to help said she never arrived.

    He called Woodstock police and began posting fliers around town.

    Wilfon also spoke with Robin’s cousin, Donna Moore.

    “I’m terrified. Terrified," Moore said.

    She said Robin would never intentionally leave her husband and 14-year-old son behind.

    “If you talk to anybody, close, distant, close friends, church members, anybody – they would tell you that she would never run of," Moore said.

    Woodstock police said they do not suspect foul play, but they are assisting in the search for Robin. She was last seen driving in a green Chrysler van with Georgia plate BME3631.

    Robin’s husband said he’s holding out hope that their family’s sometimes stressful life simply drove her away.

    “I’m hoping and praying that’s what’s wrong," Wayne said. “I just ask Robin if you’re out there somewhere, please call – let somebody know you’re OK. I’m sorry."

    If you see robin or that van, call Woodstock police at (770) 592-6000.
