Tara Grinstead's sister reacts to Streat outcome

March 12, 2006

Ocilla--Now that the search for Van Streat, Junior is over, the family of another well-known missing person's case is reacting to the outcome of that search.

The family of missing Irwin County teacher, Tara Grinstead, has been in contact with Streat's family.

Streat was last seen on February 15th. A preliminary autopsy confirmed Friday that a body found Thursday morning in northeast Ware County is, in fact, the missing 27-year-old son of a former state senator.

Right now, police still aren't sure how the young man died.

Anita Gattis, Grinstead's sister, is offering her condolences to the family.

"I can't imagine what they're having to deal with now. Because they were still in the process of just going through 'he's not here, what do we do?' Now they've got to deal with his death."

When Streat first went missing, Gattis offered to help the family search for the 27-year-old.
