Police seeking missing Charlestown woman return to area after body found in Unity woods

Officials investigating the disappearance of a Charlestown woman returned to the area early Saturday afternoon for a report of a female body found in the woods in nearby Unity.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young would not comment on possible new developments in the case, but confirmed the Attorney General's office and investigators with State Police Major Crime Unit returned to the area Saturday.

"We are back in the part of the ongoing and active investigation," Young said.

"It is likely we will have further information later today," she added. Young would not elaborate.

Investigators have been searching for Kelly Robarge, 42, of Charlestown, who was last seen late morning June 27.

Robarge has had no communications with family or friends since, arousing law enforcement authorities' concerns that she may have suffered serious injury or death.

Robarge's estranged husband, James Robarge, 43, of Rockingham, Vt. was arrested in Vermont Tuesday on unrelated motor vehicle charges after he called a local medical center to say he might hurt himself or others. He pleaded innocent to the charges in a Brattleboro, Vt. courtroom Wednesday. He is being held on $5,000 cash or surety bail.

Searchers had looked for Robarge since she disappeared with the exception of July 4. Their searches included rural wooded areas, roadways, waterways in Charlestown, Claremont and Unity. Searches also have been done in Vermont.
