Missing Gwinnett woman’s car found in ravine

For the past two weeks, authorities have been searching for a Gwinnett County woman believed to be abducted after her car went over a ravine.

Tosha Herron’s family told Channel 2 Action News they think she got out of the wreck, was seriously injured and possibly abducted.

The 36-year-old mother of three was last seen Oct. 7 heading toward Blue Ridge.

Several days after Herron was reported missing, her father, Keith Reed, spotted her car 150 feet down a ravine near Blood Mountain, Channel 2 reported. Reed said he thinks his daughter got turned around on her way to Blue Ridge.

“I think she climbed out of that mountain,” Reed told the news station. “And I think somebody during the night on the side of a windy mountain road picked her up. Maybe it was a Good Samaritan, maybe it was somebody who meant her harm.”

Local and state authorities have searched extensively for Herron. Lumpkin County authorities said they aren’t yet sure what happened to Herron, but are following up on every lead.

The family received a tip that she may have been in Gainesville, Channel 2 reported, and will focus their search there.

“We are knocking down every door, crawling in every bush and we will find you, eventually,” sister Stacie Nelson said.
