Bryce Tarter Missing - UPDATE: Found

Bryce Tarter, Missing since January 31, 2010. He is 19 years old, 6ft tall, 155lbs., Light brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen leaving Armstrong Atlantic driving a white 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab short bed, Maine license plate 944 7QD with a black grill guard and tinted windows. On the back drivers window he has an ATL Braves A and the passenger back window has an Atlanta Falcon symbol.

The Family knows: Bryce was at Georgia Southern at a party Saturday night, January 30th. He drove back to Armstrong Atlantic with some friends of his, who also had a dorm room. He did not live on campus, but was just hanging out with friends who did. We believe he was heading home, in Guyton. The route we believe he would take would be Highway 204 to Old River Road. There are other routes as well but this would have been the most logical.

He left in his White 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab Short Bed with either Maine or Georgia plates. He had two identifying stickers on his rear windows. On the passenger side was an ATL Braves "A" and on the drivers side was a Falcons symbol.

His cell phone had been dead since Saturday so we have not been able to track the cell phone. Sprint is one of the only carriers that can not track a cell phone once it is off. We are also unable to track the GPS. We are hoping that we are able to locate his truck tracking the vehicle alarm. His bank account has not been used since his disappearance.

Message from Bryce's Mom:
"I am relying on your prayers to help my family find the strength to make it through this search for Brycie. Please know how much your help and prayer mean to us." 

If you see him, or know ANYTHING, please call (910) 232-1687


UPDATE: On April 27, 2010, Bryce's truck and a body were discovered in a lake near the AASU campus. Police confirmed the next day that the body found inside was Bryce's.

Update: Robert Hall has been found.

Robert Hall Missing from Montague NJ:

Robert was last seen by his girlfriend leaving his place of business, Clove Road Deli, in Montague NJ. He said he was going to Shop Rite. He never made it there and has not been seen or heard from since. He drives a white 1983 Pontiac Fiero with NJ plate #WAM99M. It has a "Failed Inspection" sticker on it.

Robert is 48 years old, dark blonde hair, blue eyes.  He has a 2-inch scar on his forehead and a Scorpio tattoo on his right bicep. He may have been wearing a white t-shirt, a sweater, and blue jeans.

Sonya Lynn Bradley - Cold Case

Kentucky State Police Request Help Resolving Sonya Bradley's Disappearance

On Thursday October 10, 2002 Sonya Bradley (35 years old) was last seen at her apartment in Eddyville, Kentucky. Ms. Bradley left necessary medication behind and did not tell her young children where she was going. As of this date, the whereabouts of Ms. Bradley remain unknown. It is believed that foul play may have led to her disappearance. Extensive searches conducted have failed to reveal evidence of her disappearance.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Sonya Bradley contact: Det. Sgt. Sam Steger at 1-800-222-5555 or 270-856-3721 email him at

Beverly Miller never dreamed that her daughter would end up on a cold case list. But she hopes it will help solve the 2002 disappearance and presumed murder of Sonya Bradley. "I don't know what it's going to take to bring my child home, but I can't find peace until she is home".

Abducted Children Information

Conventional Photos Don't Aid The Search for a Missing Child!
ScienceDaily — People's ability to recognize abducted children is impaired when they view a photo of a smiling, clean child, but come into contact with the same child whose appearance is very different because he or she is upset, crying, disheveled or unkempt.

Two experiments were conducted to test the ability of adults to recognize children from photos. Over 150 adults were shown pictures of children that were either "cleaned up" as they would typically appear, in school photos, happy and clean, as well as a "dirtied up" picture, where the child looked dirty, tired, sad or angry. Results from the study show that recognition is best when the original appearance of the child matched the appearance when memory is later tested.

"If your child is abducted you need to supply law enforcement with a recent photo of your child, preferably not a school photo, but one taken around the house at play. One taken in their natural state, the way you normally see them on a daily basis".
