Cleveland Co. Search For Missing Ga. Woman Called Off

Posted: 6:07 pm EDT August 24, 2009
KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. -- The search for a missing Georgia woman along a Cleveland County road was called off Monday evening.

Cadaver dogs went out Monday afternoon looking for Kristi Cornwell, 38, who disappeared from Blairsville, Ga., on Aug. 11. Police said she was abducted while talking to her boyfriend on her cell phone during a walk.

Investigators said they’d received a tip through “America’s Most Wanted” that Cornwell’s body could be found along Baltic Road near Kings Mountain.

They said although the tip seemed credible, they found no sign of Corwell after combing the area for several hours.

Cornwell's family is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to her safe return or the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for her disappearance.
