ABC 24 NEWS, DYERSBURG, TN (abc24.com) - The TBI is stepping up efforts to find a missing Dyersburg woman Karen Swift who disappeared nearly two weeks ago. Now investigators are bringing in heavy duty equipment to help with the search. "As far as releasing that, we can't afford to do that. It'll jeopardize the investigation,” Sheriff Box tells abc24.com.
"I think every day we're closer, and we're not getting discouraged," says Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box. Dyer County investigators are holding out hope as they gather needed clues into the disappearance of Karen Swift. The only real clue so far, is Swift's car.
"There’s nothing to indicate a struggle. No blood," says the sheriff. The car was found about a mile from Swift's home. Detectives did find clothes inside. Those items were sent to the Tennessee State Crime Lab for review. Investigators are also looking over Swift's phone records.
Box did say one of the last people Karen Swift was in touch with before she disappeared was her teenage daughter. She sent a text message to her mom saying, “Mom come get me.” Authorities say Karen Swift picked up her daughter from a Halloween party. According to investigators, they arrived home between 1:30 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. Sunday, October 30th. Later that morning, Karen Swift was gone.
“It's really weird. We really worry," says neighbor Brad Fuller. Fuller has good reason to be worried. Theresa Gross, Holly Bobo, and now Karen Swift, are three West Tennessee women who vanished this year without a trace. “It's awfully weird," says Fuller. "Three women come up missing. No one's seen them, no one heard from them, and they vanished like they got picked up off the Earth." If you have any information about Karen Swift call the Dyer County Sheriff's Office at 731-285-2802.
