MIssing Newton
Tammy Lorraine Newton, 48, has not been seen since April 19, Candler County sheriffs Chief Deputy Melvin Ivey said.

    Candler County sheriff’s investigators are still seeking a missing Candler County woman with Bulloch County connections.
    Tammy Lorraine Newton, 48, has not been seen since April 19, Candler County sheriff’s Chief Deputy Melvin Ivey said.
    The last person to see her then said she was “supposed to go to her mother’s house in Louisville,” Ga. However, Newton’s mother has not seen her, Ivey said.
    Newton is described as a white female standing 5 feet 3 inches, weighing 130 pounds, with blue eyes and reddish brown hair.
    She might be driving a blue 1999 Mercury Tracer with Georgia tag 980XJR, Ivey said. Her direction of travel, other than she told a relative she was going to Louisville, is unknown.
    Ivey said Newton reportedly has several friends in Bulloch County, but as of Friday evening had not been able to contact anyone who had information regarding her whereabouts.
    As of Friday, there was no indication of foul play, he said.
    Anyone with information regarding Newton’s whereabouts is asked to contact Ivey at the Candler County Sheriff's Office at (912) 685-2568.
