Candlelight vigil held for Tara Grinstead

October 27, 2007

Ocilla -- A candlelight vigil was held in remembrance of Tara Grinstead. Though its been two years the light of hope flickers from Tara's family and friends.

"It has been two years. People have gotten on with their own lives, and we can understand that. But we just feel it's in our heart that we need to bring Tara home," said Co-Director of The Tara Center, Mandy Wells.

"People are hurting. People miss her, and they think of her everyday. And of course we won't rest until we have answers," said Steve Rodgers.

The situation difficult for all involved. "This has been a long stretch of grieving. This is not a grieving of death, but a loss, a missing, a injustice," said Tara's best friend, Maria Hulett.

They each promised to never stop looking.

"We had a tip a few weeks ago that we worked on for about a week, which turned up nothing. But we are still searching for Tara. We made a promise," said Wells.

They all want just one thing. "Mostly I just hope that someone can put an end to the mystery," said Rodgers.

"I hope someone will just come up and tell the truth," said Hulett. Answers that may finally bring them closure.

Anyone with information on where Tara Grinstead may be or what may have happened to her can call 1-800-567-TIPS.
