Major break in the case of missing Georgia teacher

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says a news conference has been scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the Irwin County courthouse to discuss the disappearance of Tara Grinstead.

22, 2005, just a few weeks before her 31st birthday, Grinstead disappeared after attending the local Sweet Potato Festival in Ocilla, Georgia, 165 miles south of Atlanta.

The case has stumped authorities for more than a decade. Upon investigation, police found her cellphone charging in her bedroom, her auto parked outside, unlocked, and no signs of a struggle aside from a broken bedroom lamp.

Witnesses last saw Grinstead at a beauty pageant, then at a co-worker's barbecue before she went home.

Middle East, India push up global arms trade to highest levels
French arms export deliveries may increase soon because of a series of major contracts signed in the past five years. Imports were also largely on the decline in Latin America, with only Mexico increasing its demand.

The GBI said the case has "never gone cold". Though they have received many tips over the years, none led to credible information.

The GBI says the investigation is still active and the search for Grinstead's remains continues.

Ryan Alexander Duke was arrested Wednesday for Grinstead's murder, and GBI is confident he is responsible for Grinstead's disappearance, GBI officials said. Investigators also credited an unidentified member of the public with providing new details about the killing that tied Duke to the murder.

In an interview in 2016, Channel 2 Action News interviewed a man who started a podcast about the case.
