Collegedale Police release Hunt 911 tape

Posted: Updated:

Collegedale, TN (WRCB) - More than a week after a massive search for Suzanne Hunt, Collegedale Police released the 911 call she made to investigators once she found out she was considered missing.

She made that call Sunday.

Hunt, who was reported missing from the campus of Southern Adventist University June 15th, made the call from Apison, TN where she tells Cpl. Mike Kepner she went on a hike and decided not to come back.

Police say her disappearance didn't warrant foul play, but seemed suspicious because of how she went missing.

On the call Kepner says investigators needed to know if Hunt was truly ok.

Kepner even went on to ask a series of personal questions to make sure it was indeed Hunt on the phone.

He eventually convinced her to meet with an officer, even though her plan was to continue on her hike.

According to Police Chief Brian Hickman, the entire search costs anywhere from one to two thousand dollars.

We wanted to know what made this situation different from other missing person cases and why there was search a massive search, but Hickman has not yet responded.

We will continue to follow this story.
