Authorities are continuing to search for a 31-year-old woman last seen leaving a home in Haralson County after what they called a domestic disagreement.

Jessica Victoria Earl, also known as Jessica Jones King, was last seen June 8 in a dispute with 36-year-old Jeffery Seth Odom, Haralson County sheriff’s office Chief Deputy Joel McSwain said in a statement Monday.

Odom is wanted on separate charges of drug possession, obstruction and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Officials warn that Odom has a history of violence and may be armed.

The confrontation took place at a residence on Little Circle near Tallapoosa, officials said. The sheriff’s office found a phone supposedly belonging to Earl in the woods nearby but have yet to recover any information from it.

The residence does not belong to Earl or Odom as both are reported to be staying with friends, officials said.

Earl appeared to be under the influence of drugs at the time of the dispute, McSwain said in the statement.

Authorities said they arrested two women who drove Odom to a home near Villa Rica last Thursday, helping him avoid arrest. Officials said the women provided potential leads about Odom’s location.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office at 770-646-2011.
