    Maryland State Police divers will search Chesapeake Bay Sunday for any sign of Robin Pope.

    Police divers will return to the Chesapeake Bay again Tuesday to search for a missing Maryland woman.

    Robin Pope, 51, of Queen Anne's County, was reported missing by her estranged husband, Wayne Pope Jr., early Saturday.

    The Natural Resources Police divers will be joined by a Natural Resources Police boat equipped with sonar to scan the water from above. Ground teams will also be searching for evidence.


    Divers also searched the bay Sunday, but didn't find anything.

    Wayne Pope told authorities he last saw Robin on Friday night when she arrived at his home to retrieve some of her belongings.

    The couple had separated in December and had been living apart, with Robin staying at a home owned by a friend on Kent Island, Wayne Pope told authorities.

    He said he left their home in the 100 block of Beach Road of Stevensville shortly after his wife arrived, and returned around 2 a.m. to discover that both she and his Great Dane were gone.

    Robin Pope's her car remained in his driveway, and authorities found her keys, purse, credit cards and cash inside.

    The dog was later found dead near the home with trauma to its upper body. Authorities said Tuesday they have not yet determined a cause of death.

    An investigation by Maryland State Police, Maryland Natural Resources Police, and Queen Anne County Sheriff's deputies is ongoing. Anyone with information about Robin Pope is asked to contact Maryland State Police at (410) 758-1101.
