WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — It’s been exactly one year since Charlotte Lester was last seen.

The community held a vigil Tuesday night at Arnold’s Neck Waterfront Park to honor her.

“It’s been a tough year, probably the most challenging year for me and my family,” her brother Mark Lester said. “Time goes by very quick, and every day we think of her.”

Charlotte was last seen on May 16, 2022, in the Apponaug section of Warwick, specifically near Arnold’s Neck Drive and Staples Avenue.

Since then, friends, family, and law enforcement have been looking for her. Her dog was found wandering Elmwood Avenue alone in the days after she vanished.

Detectives later discovered Charlotte’s red pickup truck abandoned outside Kent Hospital, and a search party found a series of letters addressed to her in the woods near where her vehicle was found.

Charlotte is described as a white female who stands 5-foot-7 with a slim-to-medium build and brown eyes. It’s also possible she’s wearing a wig, according to police.

Anyone with any information on Lester’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Warwick Police Department at (401) 468-4200.
