Details of Disappearance

Moody was last seen in Ludowici, Georgia on December 4, 2007. That day, she left her job at C&S Construction and visited a friend. at Fort Stewart near Hinesville, Georgia at 4:00 p.m.

Afterwards, she visited another friend in Liberty County, Georgia, then the two women drove to Moody's mobile home at the end of on Smiley Road, a dirt road off Highway 196. Moody's friend helped her unload a dog pen she had just purchased at Anderson's Feed and Seed. She says Moody was behaving normally at the time. The friend left her between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m.

Moody has never been heard from again. Her uncle reported her missing on December 10. Nothing appeared to be amiss inside her home when police checked it. Her purse was inside the residence, and her car was parked undisturbed outside it, and her dogs were in the front yard. There was no indication of foul play at the scene. An extensive search of the local area turned up no indication of her whereabouts.

Moody's mother, stepfather and son lived in Florida at the time of her disappearance, but they came to Georgia to assist with the investigation. She was in the process of a divorce in 2007, and is described as an independent, self-reliant woman who enjoys country living.

It is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Due to the lack of evidence in her case, it is being investigated as a missing person rather than a crime.
