SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, HAMILTON COUNTY (Times Free Press) - Detectives began to search the home of a missing 44-year-old Signal Mountain woman Thursday night after her husband recently granted them permission to search the couple's properties.
Hamilton County Sheriff's Office and Signal Mountain Police Department investigators entered the residence at 40 Ridgerock Drive in hopes of finding clues of where Gail Palmgren may be.
Palmgren, 44, was last seen April 30. No one has heard from her since.
Janice Atkinson, public information officer for the sheriff's office, said investigators conducted the search at night so they could use an alternative light source to check for body fluids, such as blood, throughout the residence.
