Please continue to pray for the safe return of Cheryl who has been missing since this past Saturday, December 1, 2007. We know Cheryl from Fire school and this is very tragic.

Latest news report:
As of this morning, there was no new information on the search for the 46-year-old Wakulla County woman who has been missing since the weekend, according to Sgt. Rob Reisinger of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators are disclosing few details about the disappearance of Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, a 5-foot-4 woman with brown hair and brown eyes.

Dunlap was last seen about 9 a.m. Saturday in her Crawfordville home, according to Maj. Maurice Langston, spokesman for the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office — which Tuesday handed the case over to the Leon office.

Her car, which friends described Tuesday as a white Toyota Camry, was found Monday on the shoulder of U.S. Highway 319.

It was parked on the southbound shoulder just before the Wakulla County line. It had one flat tire.

Missing Person

I just got the following email from the alumni coordinator of the Bible school I went to:
Please pray!

Dear Grads,

Cheryl Dunlap, a FIRE grad from the class of Fall 2002, has been missing since Saturday morning, December 1st. She didn't show up to teach Sunday school or for work on Monday morning. This is very unlike Cheryl and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance seem to indicate foul play. The police are involved. Please take some time to pray for supernatural protection for Cheryl and her safe return home.
Here is a link to some news coverage:
Cheryl's son Jake is out and on assignment with the military. Because of this, he has not yet been contacted. Pray that he would be able to draw near to God once he's been informed of the situation.

Please pray! You can check the FIRE community website under the prayer request link for updates or to post questions/comments.
