UPDATE III: Police reveal more details of investigation into dispatcher’s disappearance
Parker’s shift ends at 7 a.m. so she clocked out shortly after that, Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said. She was scheduled to be off Wednesday through Saturday, which is normal rotation for dispatchers, and she asked for Sunday off as well to work on moving into her new apartment.
Parker is going through a divorce with her husband Sam, a long-time sergeant with the LaFayette Police Department. She was planning to move into a townhouse near Lakeview Drive. She normally speaks with her family daily, but upon talking to her sister face to face in Fort Oglethorpe at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night, she said she would be busy moving to her new residence.
Authorities have not recovered Parker’s cell phone as has been reported, but they have used global positioning satellites to determine when and in what vicinity it was used last. Harris said he could not reveal that information during an ongoing investigation. Harris said phone records could play a major role in the investigation and could not release any phone-related specifics at this time.
If Theresa left, she didn’t leave in her vehicle. Her 1999 Toyota Forerunner was at her Cordell Road residence on Saturday where she and Sam lived in LaFayette. It was brought to the sheriff’s department for processing by a GBI crime scene specialist, which involves looking for fingerprints, hairs, fibers and other evidence “just like CSI (on TV),” Wilson said.

Family and friends gathered and held a vigil in the parking lot of a Canton Wal-Mart Sunday night to pray for Sue Ann Ray who has been missing for nearly five months.
A group of about 30 people gathered in the parking lot of a Canton Wal-Mart Sunday night to pray for a mother who has been missing for nearly five months. 26-year-old Sue Ann Ray disappeared in late August.
The group released balloons in to the air carrying information about Sue Ann Ray.
“Who knows where the balloons will pop?” Ray’s sister, Sandy Chasm, told WSB-TV. “It may land in the right people’s hands who saw someone parking this van here, who saw someone taking her wherever they took her.”
Ray’s 6-year-old daughter, Charity, lives with her godmother, Leslie Colley, who says the girl asks where her mother is.
“I don’t know the answer,”Colley said. “I just tell her that we’re trying to find her. I can’t tell her that she’s not coming back. I can’t tell her that she is coming back.”
Sue Ann Ray’s family has hired an private investigator and the reward for information to the where abouts of Sue Ann is up to $105,000. Sue Ann Ray’s estranged husband, Quinton Ray, is the last person to see her alive. The police are still not calling him a suspect. It has obviously taken its toll on the family as Sue Ann’s father made the following comment:
For Ray’s father, Danny Jenkins, not knowing has been difficult.
“If hell is any worse than this, I don’t know,” Jenkins said. “It’s tough not knowing where your little girl is, whether she’s laying out in the woods rotting, whether she went through a wood-chipper like I was told.”
Who was he told by?
It has been more than a month since the disappearance of Amanda Jones. Her friends and family gathered at the Hillsboro Civic Center, the last place Jones was seen to pray together for her safe return and collect money for her bills.
Jones’ father, Hubert Propst, said he would continue to pay for his daughter’s utilities, insurance and car payment until she returns home. The money will also go to support Jones’ 4-year-old daughter.
Jones was also nine months pregnant at the time of her disappearance.
“Sometimes you have to look out for people in your own backyard,” said Tammy Fadler, who won a $110 bid for a pair of Cardinal tickets. “We have given to Katrina victims, but you also have to look out for your neighbors.”
Nearly 300 items were available at the silent auction. Local businesses also donated 80 gift certificates to the event.
A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in Jones’ disappearance.
