Help find Tara

October 29, 2005

Ocilla - An urgent plea, from friends and family members of a missing South Georgia teacher: Help us find Tara. Thirty-year-old Tara Grinstead of Ocilla has been missing for a week now.

Friends last saw the 30-year-old last Saturday night at a beauty pageant in Fitzgerald. It wasn't until two days later that they became worried. Even though police do not suspect foul play, her family member's believe she may have been abducted by someone she knows.

Tara's about 5-feet 3-inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. There is now a $20,000 reward leading to the safe return of Tara or for information of her whereabouts.

A community wide search will take place Sunday in Ocilla from 2-5PM. Searchers with four-wheelers, horses and dogs are asked to come out and help, as well as walkers. If you would like to volunteer, call 229-468-9181 to sign up, or go to the Senior Citizens Center on East 4th Street tomorrow in Ocilla.
