Possible Leads In Missing Person Case
By Gavin Johnson, WCJB TV20 News
Most of the time when we tell you about someone disappearing with a man she met on an internet chat room, the victim is a teenager. But tonight, that person could be a 60-year old woman.
Dixie County Sheriff, Dewey Hatcher says investigators sent Judith Osteen's computer to the FDLE lab in Tallahassee. Because he says, Osteen spent a lot of time online and it looks like the person who abducted her was someone she may have been chatting with. And Hatcher hopes their investigation can lead to a break in the case. Because bad weather hampered any clues that may have been left at osteen's house. Hatcher says, "There were no tire tracks or foot tracks around the home. because it had been rained out." Hatcher also says there was also no sign of forced entry, Osteen may have let the man in.
Osteen's sister told deputies she saw Osteen leave with the man, and she didn't see a weapon. But Sheriff Hatcher still thinks Osteen went unwillingly. Because she left with no shoes and without her purse. If you have any information where Judith Osteen is call the Dixie County Sheriff's Office at 498-1231.
