Possible Evidence Discovered In Missing Bride-To-Be Case

Evidence in the Jennifer Wilbanks case may have been found along the jogging route the missing bride-to-be was known to run. Workers at a doctor's office in Duluth saw large clumps of hair that appeared to have been pulled from a scalp in an area next to a retention pond behind the office. The office park where the hair was found is in an area where the 32-year-old Wilbanks is known to have run.

Wilbanks disappeared just days before she is to be married and police now consider it a criminal investigation. Her fiance, John Mason, said Wilbanks left home Tuesday night to go jogging. When she did not return in a couple of hours he began looking for her and then notified police. Office worker Tanjar Anderson saw the dark brown hair, the same color as the description of Wilbanks, and called police. Anderson says police collected the hair and then later 20 to 30 officers combed the property, the retention pond and a wooded area behind the doctor's office.

Wilbanks is described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall, about 123 pounds, with shoulder-length dark brown hair. Police say she was wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue sweat pants when she went out. Mason says when his fiance left to go jogging, she left with just a radio and the clothes she had on - her cell phone, credit cards, pocket book, money, keys to her car and her diamond engagement ring were all at home. Mason's father, Claude Mason, is a former Duluth mayor and municipal judge. The FBI and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation also are involved in the case.
