Search for missing Cocke County woman continues

Cocke County authorities are investigating the recovery of items from an area on Phillips Hollow Road in the Bybee community.

Deputy Etan Keys says resident Maria George reported her dogs, over the weekend, brought home a T-shirt that was full of hair and had bones with it.

The officer says the recovered items included hair with a hair tie in it, leading investigators to suspect it is human hair.

Also collected was a VISA credit card which had expired in 2018.

George reported she had recently purchased the property and has lived there for approximately two months.
