Over the weekend the case of the missing Blairsville woman, Kristi Cornwell, aired on America’s Most Wanted and a tip phoned into the show led investigators to Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
The search itself left law enforcement with no leads to go on and the caller chose to remain anonymous. North Carolina Emergency Management said that they were also going to have cadaver dogs out today in the search.
I meant to post an update to my original entry but I might as well put it here. I mentioned in my first post on Kristi Cornwell that the whole phone call thing just didn’t seem right to me but police have ruled Cornwell’s boyfriend out as a suspect which leads me to believe that he had an alibi or that they did a trace on his location when she called him.
As I mentioned yesterday, the family is now offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to Kristi’s safe return and/or the arrest of the person or persons responsible for her disappearance.
Update – The search in NC ended around 6 last night and as far as law enforcement can tell the tip was bogus.
