Ocilla- She may not be home for Christmas, but Tara Grinstead remains in the thoughts of those who love her. More than 30 friends, relatives, and students braved the cold Thursday night at a special Christmas gathering for Tara Grinstead.
Students sang and ornaments were hung on a tree in Tara Grinstead's front yard. The police tape is a reminder that she's still missing. Her sister says Christmas holds a special place for Grinstead and her family. Students hope wherever Grinstead is, she would be proud of their celebration.
"She was baptized on Christmas eve in our church, so it's been a very meaningful holiday to our family," said Anita Gattis, Grinstead's Sister.
"I just decided that's just a very good Christmas song that everybody knows and I know she sang, she sang a lot and she likes Christmas and she likes winter," said Kayla Cleghorn, a Student who sang Silent Night.
Grinstead, an Irwin County High School history teacher, disappeared in October. Her sister says investigators are looking into several leads, but nothing she could talk about. Tara rented this home. The owners say they'll hold it for Grinstead and won't charge the family rent.
