SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, HAMILTON COUNTY(WRCB) - Missing Signal Mountain mom, Gail Palmgren, is being highlighted in a nationwide missing persons tour.

The Community United Effort Center for Missing Persons, or CUE, made a stop on Signal Mountain Saturday. The organization is traveling across country as part of its eighth annual missing persons tour.

In September, Channel 3 reported CUE joining the search, after Gail's sister requested the organization help look for clues.

The group, founded by Monica Caison, will be working closely with law enforcement to plan searches.

Saturday, detectives from Signal Mountain Police Department and Hamilton County Sheriff's Office were present for the rally. It's the first time law enforcement has attended a community meeting for Gail Palmgren.

Monica Caison says her organization will be able to provide funding and special technology to aid law enforcement in the search. Detectives tell Channel 3 they are open to the CUE Center and its resources.

Caison believes there are clues in Gail's disappearance and she's ready to find them.

"People don't just vanish," she told Channel 3, "when we get cases like this, there's a vehicle missing, there's a person missing, there's information missing, and there's items missing, then we need to make a special effort to find something, to prove where she actually may have been."

Caison says there are currently 127 people missing in Tennessee, and her experience leads her to believe someone knows where Gail Palmgren is.

"Every community holds the key to a missing person," said Caison, "someone say something, maybe even that they are sitting back and saying it's probably nothing. Call it in, get it checked out, bring it to someone's attention."

Caison and her team will return to Signal Mountain after the nationwide tour to begin looking for Gail.

Hamilton County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Janice Atkinson tells Channel 3 an aerial search for Gail and her Jeep will be held in the coming weeks.

Gail Palmgren was last seen April 30th leaving her Signal Mountain home. She was driving a maroon Jeep Rubicon with an Alabama tag: "EAZY ST".
