CLAY COUNTY, Fla. — On Feb. 22 a kayaker found a body in the North fork of Black Creek.
Tonight, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office says it was the body of Lynda Robertson, 48, of Jacksonville.
Beulah Robertson, Lynda’s sister, spoke to Action News Jax Tuesday night.
“She was a giving, sweet, person,” said Beulah. “Just the fact that that happened to her, that hurts us more than anything.”
Beulah says she last spoke to Lynda on Feb. 10.
“She told me she was coming home, and then she said, ‘I love you,’ and I said, ‘I love you’ back,” said Beulah.
Beulah says she did not see Lynda come by, but her daughter did.
“My daughter said she came home that night, and she left back out, but I didn’t see her,” said Beulah.
Family reported her missing a few days after Feb. 10.
“Me and my sister was real close. When you don’t hear from your siblings after two or three days and you constantly calling them, and you know, if they’re not picking up, you know something is wrong,” said Beulah.
After the kayaker’s discovery, deputies turned to the community asking anyone who recognized a necklace found on her body to come forward.
Beulah says a family member made the connection.
“One of my niece’s cousin, she’s like a niece to us, she pulled up an old Facebook picture of her from like four years back, and that’s when we noticed the necklace,” said Beulah.
She says investigators found Lynda’s truck in Jacksonville before her body was identified.
Now, investigators, and family members, are turning to the community in their search for answers.
“If anybody knows what happened to my sister, please let us know,” said Beulah. “... We need to know what really happened to her.”
Deputies are asking anyone with information regarding Robertson, or her truck, to contact Det. David Vereen at (904) 264-6512.
