Missing Dekalb Co. mom with local ties is located

By Staff
DEKALB COUNTY - A missing Atlanta woman with Gainesville ties has been located, but questions remain a week after her mysterious disappearance.

According to family members, police say Wyteria Henderson-Jackson's uncle reported that the mother of eight came to his home in Athens on Friday, asking for gas money.

Authorities said Wyteria Jackson was last seen Sept. 15 and made a 9-1-1 call days later, telling police that she was locked in the trunk of a car.

A number of classmates have circulated Facebook posts about the 46 year old, who apparently graduated with the Gainesville High School class of 1985.

Police said Jackson, who works for Turner Broadcasting in Atlanta, was last seen a week ago Saturday when she left home to go to a baby shower. She apparently called work twice last week to say she was not coming in.
