Thomasville - The GBI won't say how much money is missing, but Special Agent in Charge, Ronnie Thompson did say, "It's kind of more wrong for someone to take that kind of money, but, unfortunately those kind of crimes happen."

The Red Cross is still operating and wants to make sure the public knows their donations will still be put to good use. Interim Director Pat Rentz says, "The main thing I want people to understand is that we're right on top of it and that we are good stewards of our money, and they can trust us, to not stop their donations. We need their donations to continue the services we provide."

The wiregrass chapter serves Thomas, Grady, Decatur and Seminole counties.
