SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - Signal Mountain mother of two, Gail Palmgren, has been missing for two and a half weeks.
Palmgren's family says they're getting little cooperation from police. They organized a search party at the Walmart at the foot of Signal Mountain Monday.
"The more people you hit, the better your chances are," said Gail Palmgren's friend, Maria Gallivan, placing a flyer on a car parked outside Walmart.
Friends from as far as New York are teaming up with local people who don't know Gail Palmgren, but saw her story on Channel 3.
The group spent Monday handing out 10,000 flyers and wondering why Gail's husband, Matthew, hasn't offered to lend a hand.
"It seems like we are the only ones doing anything to help," said Gallivan, who flew from New York to help find Gail, "I hear from Matt briefly, but I don't know what he is doing, if he is doing something, we don't know what it is he is doing because it's not being shared."
Channel 3 visited the Palmgren's address again Monday. Matthew Palmgren was not home.
His attorney, Bryan Hoss, tells Channel 3 Matthew Palmgren has hired a private investigator to look for Gail, and is busy taking care of the couple's children.
