N.C. Search For Missing Woman Finds Nothing

BLAIRSVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A North Carolina search for a missing
Georgia woman has ended after no evidence of her was found there.

Searchers acting on a tip called in to the television show
"America's Most Wanted" began looking for 38-year-old Kristi
Cornwell of Blairsville on Sunday.

She disappeared from her hometown Aug. 11. Police said she was abducted while talking to her boyfriend on her cell phone during a walk.

U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Tyler Kellner said the search
concluded around 6 p.m. Monday after officials set up a grid and
used cadaver dogs to look for the woman.

Searchers looked in the area of Kings Mountain, N.C., near
Charlotte and almost 200 miles from Blairsville. Officers said a
caller to the TV show said the woman's body could be found there.

The case was profiled on the show Saturday night.
