A quiet search for a Bradley county woman who went missing two years ago has gone public.
Family and friends of Marsha Brantley have sent out fliers asking for anyone with information to come forward, said Bradley County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bob Gault.
“Some of the family and friends have renewed the efforts,” he said.
Brantley was last seen in June 2009, but she wasn’t reported missing until November when a friend spoke to a local attorney, Gault said.
Steve Bebb, the 10th Judicial District Attorney, then reported the case to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, which opened an investigation, Gault said.
The sheriff’s office is now also involved in the search.
Anyone with information on Brantley is asked to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
