    GA - Sabrina Long, 19, Macon, 14 Aug 1991



    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/207dfga.html

    Missing since August 14, 1991 from Macon, Bibb County, Georgia.
    Classification: Involuntary


    Vital Statistics Date Of Birth: October 7, 1971
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 19 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'6; 127 lbs
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Dark brown hair; blue eyes.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Long was last seen at her stepfather's house in south Macon's Bloomfield area, where she was living, on August 14, 1991.
    Long was born in Memphis, Tennessee, but grew up in Macon.
    On August 13, 1991, Long worked her second shift job at Bibb Manufacturing. She got off work at 11 p.m. and stopped by her boyfriend's to trade cars - she'd been driving his Camaro because her truck was having problems. The boyfriend drove her home and left. Long phoned her mother between 12:30 AM and 1:30 AM. She said she was going to visit a neighbour.
    Long's stepfather returned home at approximately 3:00 AM. The lights were on inside and Long's truck was in the driveway, but Long wasn't there.
    Long's boyfriend arrived at her stepfather's home during the morning hours of August 15, looking for her. A call to Bibb Manufacturing revealed Sabrina hadn't called or shown up for work Wednesday. She also hadn't picked up her paycheck. Her work clothes from Tuesday were on the floor of her bedroom. Her purse and makeup were in the house. Her neighbor said that she never had plans to visit his house on August 14.
    Long's mother said that her daughter received several obscene phone calls prior to her disappearance. Long scheduled an interview with a local company during the summer of 1991 and was excited about the possibility of working there. Her mother said that Long learned an appointment had never been scheduled when she called to confirm the time shortly afterwards.
    There were rumors that Long had a secret boyfriend who lived near Lake Tobesofkee who might have picked her up. No evidence has been located to substansiate the rumors.
    Foul play is suspected.

    Does anyone have information on this case ? I looked but I can't find it here in the search. This is scary.

    Long's mother said that her daughter received numerous disturbing phone calls prior to her disappearance. Long scheduled an interview with a local company during the summer of 1991 and was excited about the possibility of working at the location. Her mother said that Long learned an appointment had never been scheduled when she called to confirm the time shortly afterwards. It is not clear if these events were connected to Long's case.
    An anonymous woman called Long's stepfather's residence in 1992 and claimed she was Long. The caller requested assistance, then terminated the message. Long's mother reviewed the answering machine tape and concluded that the individual was not her daughter. Long's stepfather said that he heard a rumor that Long had a secret boyfriend who resided in the Lake Tobesofkee, Georgia area in 1991. There was speculation that the man may have picked up Long from her home on the night of her disappearance, but no evidence has been located to determine if the man exists.

    Just bumping this up. Sabrina and her family lived a few streets over from my family.They moved into the neighborhood when I was in high school, her brother Jack is my age.

    I am always looking for updates to this case but never seem to find anything.

    I think about her often and wish they could find her and find out what happened to her. This August will be 17 years since she has been missing.

    I worked with Sabrina when she disappeared. At the time of her disappearance, the notices sounded as if everything was OK at home. For a time shortly before she disappeared, she worked at night when there were only four of us in the building.
    Several times, Sabrina mentioned that she would like to just leave. She said something about a younger sister she was worried about, if she did leave, though.
    I remember her telling me about a potential job and not hearing about it again.
    We worked for The Bibb Company: Bibb Manufacturing was a separate company with an office next to us.
    She once said that she responded to an ad about modeling; she seemed to aspire to be a model. She said that the guy "creeped her out." It was about a month before she vanished when she told me and it seemed as if this may have been some time a month or so previous. Then she mentioned that she was worried that something strange might happen. I remember immediately thinking that, by the way she led to it and she looked at me to see how it affected me, she was setting this up and she was going to run away. Shortly before that, Sabrina started wearing more revealing clothes and acted a bit more flirtatious.
    The police interviewed a bunch of people, but did not seem interested in questioning me.

    20th Anniversary



    Facebook Event | Facebook Page

    Like many young women, Sabrina Long had dreamed about her future. Her aunt, Janice Dowling, says Long wanted to be a model.

    "This is my favorite one," Dowling says, looking a a photograph of Long, lounging, wearing a button-down shirt and blue jean, her head tilted to the side. "Because it's her, the playful side of her."

    It's that memory Dowling hopes to keep alive. It has been 20 years since Long vanished from her stepfather's Bloomfield neighborhood home. The Bibb County 19-year-old had returned home after working a late shift at Bibb Manufacturing Company, Dowling says. Sabrina spoke her last words to her mother on August 14, 1991, they were, "I love you."

    Hi Janice,
    I'm sorry to say that Searching for Sabrina Leigh Long on facebook yields nothing. You might want to check on the page and see if somethings' wrong.
    I'm sure you already saw this comment, but someone who worked with Sabrina said that she was creeped out by a guy who wanted to photograph her and soon before she disappeared started acting more flirty and model-ly or something. Did police ever get tips about this photographer guy or search for him?
    Best of luck. My heart is with you <3

    Full story set to air tomorrow. Sabrina has been missing for 24 years now.

    Middle Georgia Cold Cases: Out of Thin Air

    Captain Jimmy Barbee says over the years people have called, but there's been no trace of Sabrina.

    "People have called in, saying she's in the woods here or in the woods there. Those things have checked out and nothing was found," Barbee says.

    Glad to see this is going to be covered again locally -- sure hope someone who watches knows something and will be moved to share that info.

    From your link, JusticeWillBeServed:

    ..."People have called in, saying she's in the woods here or in the woods there. Those things have checked out and nothing was found," Barbee says. ...
    Gosh, I hope those tips have REALLY been "checked out", and thoroughly -- with HRD dogs.

    Agreed, they don't seem to have any idea on what could have happened to her so one of the tips called in could be the right one.

    There was one confusing part from this story:

    Days, then months, then years went by -- no trace of the 19-year-old.

    Then Sabrina's mother got a call, could it be a clue?

    "The mother said a male had called and talked with her about Sabrina going to Geico for a job interview. The mother didn't know anything about it. He left a name, the mother called Geico and they didn't know who this man was saying he's not part of this organization at all," Barbee says.

    Another dead end.
    They said years went by before the mother received this call. Was he calling to say that at the time of her disappearance she was applying and this could be relevant? Or that she had recently applied and the person was following through to schedule something? I guess ultimately, it was probably someone playing a cruel joke.

    Also about the visit to a neighbor that night. Did she tell her boyfriend that she had this plan or did she tell him that she was going to sleep? I wonder if she told any close friends (or anyone) that she was meeting someone else for whatever reason. I'm assuming by now they would have spoken up about it but who knows. If she was asking her mom to call her back, she clearly had some reservations on what she was going to do that night.
