ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Right now, investigators are still trying to figure out what led to the disappearance of a 28-year old Lee County woman. Lee County Sheriff's Investigators and GBI agents worked through the night collecting evidence in the case of a possible kidnapping, and were back at the scene Thursday.

Police need your help finding 28-year old Christy Maria Jackson. The last time anyone spoke to Jackson was Wednesday afternoon around 4:00. She was at her Flat Ridge Ct. home speaking to her mom on the phone. She told her mother a white man, who had been driving a white Cadillac was standing outside her house. Then, the phone went dead.

"The Grandmother said her daughter was missing, the house had been ransacked and her daughter was missing, so that's about all we know," said neighbor Tammie Horton.

And police don't know much else. They say they are looking for anyone who matches the description of the man Jackson described to her mother. Horton lives in the house next to Jackson. She says she didn't see or hear anything suspicious.

"It's just very unusual." Horton says the subdivision where they live is typically quiet. "We're just shocked," she said.  "It's very quiet.  We didn't think anything like this would happen. It's just always been a quiet neighborhood."

And she's hoping her neighbor will return home soon. "I'm just hoping they'll find the girl and she's alright and everything."

Jackson lives in the home with her mother and children. Police tell us she and her husband are separated. Anyone with any information on Christy Maria Jackson is asked to contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 229-759-6012 or the GBI Tip Line at 1-800-597-TIPS (8477).
