BECKLEY - Raleigh County officials declared a woman who vanished in 1993 as dead.

The County Commission signed a petition Tuesday that presumes the death of Angela Cherice Gwinn Stephens. Commission President Dave Tolliver said West Virginia State Police have exhausted leads in the search for Stephens.

Stevens was last seen the morning of October 1, 1993 and was not reported as missing until nearly a year later, on September 12, 1994. Stephens' husband reportedly told police she dropped him off at his job in Beckley but she did not return to pick him up.
