Volunteers to continue search for missing teacher

November 9, 2005

Ocilla- By air, on horseback, on all-terrain vehicles and on foot. Search teams spent more than two weeks combing Irwin County.

"We've used hundreds of public safety personnel which we're very thankful for ," says Ocilla Police Chief Billy Hancock.

Hancock says law enforcers from 50 agencies and as far away as Florida donated their time and resources every day.

"The blanket coverage that we've done over the county is jut a first step, it was an obvious step," says Hancock. "We'll be continuing to do a search. Those searches will be based upon leads we may get."

"There are 1,200 barns, hay storage buildings, grain silos in the county that have not been searched, so there is still a lot of area to search," says Grinstead's sister Anita Gattis.

Grinstead's sister says she and her family appreciate all the help and relentless searches law enforcers and volunteers have conducted.

"I know a lot of law enforcement came down and did not even turn in their overtime that have been searching the past two weeks," Gattis says.

Now, she says she'll continue to use every effort and resource to look for and find her sister.

Chief Hancock urges anyone who has any information about the case to contact the Ocilla Police or GBI.
