    GA - Sonya Tukes, 22, Tennille, May 2004

    I can't find much "out there" about Sonya's disappearance, other than the linked account, which just came out in the "Middle Georgia Cold Cases" feature that Skyler Henry does on 41NBC. (That's a great feature, IMO -- just wish, in this case, a more definite date had been given.)

    Middle Georgia Cold Cases: The Phone Call

    Washington County sheriff’s investigators are looking for a woman who went missing almost 12 years ago. It’s a Middle Georgia Cold Case.

    Sonya Tukes was 22 years old at the time she disappeared from her sister’s home in Tennille....

    ...“She was a hard worker. She loved her child,” Sonya’s sister, Barbara, said....

    ...“She was about to go to bed. She said she got to get ready for work and I was like ok then. She went in one room and I went in my room,” Barbara mentioned....

    ...“When they woke up that morning, she was gone and there’s no answers, there’s no clues,” Capt. Trey Burgamy, an investigator with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, said.

    No note, no message of where she could be, nothing.

    “There was no signs of forced entry to the residence. The back door was just open when they woke up the next morning,” Burgamy pointed out.

    Sonya had a boyfriend. According to the sheriff’s office, they recently had a fight....

    ...They checked everything — they even got a hold of phone records. That’s when they got their first clue.

    Someone called Barbara’s house late that night. Sonya picked up the phone.

    Investigators traced the call to a pay phone on the outside of town at a service station.

    “My guess is when she got that phone call, she went out to talk, she was going to come back in, but never did come back in the house,” Barbara said....

    ...41NBC reached to Sonya’s then boyfriend for this story and did not hear back. The GBI is helping in this investigation.

    If you know what happened to Sonya Tukes, call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at (478) 552-4795.

    Decided to also link the station's "Middle Georgia Cold Case" feature compendium here (for now -- maybe I can find a more appropriate place to link it, also) for those who might like to look at other cases featured earlier in the series:

    Such a sad interview with the family. Hopefully they receive some tips from the story. I also couldn't find anything else regarding the case.

    Yes, the mother and sister really tugged at my heartstrings, too. I couldn't find anything else on this one either, JusticeWillBeServed.
