Searches for Mook continue

Thursday, March 17, 2011

The search for missing teacher Shelley Mook continues with little success but much effort, Bedford County Sheriff Randall Boyce said Wednesday.

"I've had four or five people on it every day," Boyce said. "We're following tips when we get them. We need to just keep looking.

"We've just been searching and looking," Boyce said. "We've looked a place or two over in Rutherford County this week and found just a little bit that may help us, nothing concrete.

"We need to find her."

Cadaver dogs are continuing to be used in several places, the sheriff said.

Mook, a reading teacher at Harris Middle School, was last seen Feb. 28 as she dropped off her daughter at her ex-husband's house north of Shelbyville. Her car was found burned later that night near Murfreesboro.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery of Mook. Call the Bedford County Sheriff's Department, 684-3232, for more information.
