    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Burnette was last seen about 06:00 a.m. at her residence in Harrison, Tennessee on September 17, 1996.

    She was in an estranged relationship with her husband, Donald Ray Burnette, when she was last seen on September 17, 1996. This case is still classified as a missing person but is being handled as a homicide investigation due to the violent history within the marriage.

    In October 1996, Paula Burnette's driver's license was found in the 9500 block of Harrison Bay Road, Harrison, Tennessee. Two months after she was last seen, her estranged husband, Donald Ray Burnette, took an Amsouth branch bank manager and her family hostage. After driving them around the countryside all night, he forced the woman to rob her own bank. A month later, Donald Ray Burnette and an accomplice, James Travis White, were arrested.

    In April 1997, Paula Burnette's purse/address book washed into a Chattanooga home's backyard in the Tyner community. In July 1997, authorities searched the old Savannah Valley Water Plant.

    Bumping for Paula, 19 years ago today she disappeared.

    Circumstances make it appear that she is no longer alive, but it is NEVER too late for justice to be pursued and for her to be found!
