Debora Moody has been missing for over five years. She was last seen at her mobile home on Smiley Street off of Highway 196 in Ludowici on the evening of December 4, 2007.
Debora was an employee at C & S Construction and was working on the morning she went missing. Later that day at approximately 3:45PM she went to visit a friend at Fort Stewart in Hinesville, GA and after that she went to pick-up another friend in Liberty County and the two went back to Debora’s home.
According to the friend, Debora was acting normal and nothing seemed amiss. She stayed at her home for roughly 2 hours before heading home. Shortly after, Debora seemingly vanished.
Less than a week later, on December 10, 2007, after failing to get in touch with her, a relative contacted Long County Sheriff’s Office and filed a missing persons report.
When police searched her home they found her purse in her house, her car sitting in the driveway and her dog on a leash in the front yard. There was no indication of foul play. Surprisingly, she didn’t take her purse and her dog in the front yard indicated she was planning to come back soon.
Family members including Debora’s parents and (grown) son lived in Florida not too far from the Georgia Border. They spent alot of time in Georgia assisting in the investigation and searching. They claim she was in the process of a divorce and described her as an independent woman who enjoyed the country life. They say it is very uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning and believe something happened to her.
Due to the lack of evidence her case is being listed as a missing person rather than a crime.
Some reports spell her first name as “Deborah” however, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spells her name as “Debora”. According to the GBOI website, she could be going by her middle name, Gail.
Her case is listed on America’s Most Wanted with the latest airing on February 23, 2008. Her episode is posted on AMW but is currently unavailable.
She will be turning 48 in several weeks.
