GREAT FALLS - The United States Park Police stopped searching for Becky M. McCleskey, 56, who was reported missing on Monday, Feb. 6.

“Right now we’re not actively searching the area for her,” Timothy Wallace, park police spokesperson, said on Friday, Feb. 10.

The park police spent three days searching the 800-acre, mostly forested Great Falls Virginia National Park by land and helicopter after McCleskey’s car was found parked in its north parking area on Monday. Her car entered the park at 4:36 p.m. that evening.

The park was closed for two hours the following morning because of the investigation.

At 7:38 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7, the Great Falls Park Facebook account posted a status informing the public that it was closed and warned visitors to call the visitor center before attempting to enter the park. By 9:47 a.m., the park posted a new status saying, “Great Falls Park is now back open!”
