Beth Twitty will join the many volunteers this weekend to search for the missing Georgia teacher, Tara Grinstead.
Beth Twitty, the grieving mother of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, will join the search this weekend for Tara Grinstead, the 30-year-old school teacher and former beauty queen who vanished more than a month and a half ago after a local pageant.
Beth Twitty approached Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch and asked if she could help volunteer and search for Tara. Tim Miller is putting together a massive search effort where he is looking to get 500 volunteers and search over fifteen mile radius around Ocilla beginning Saturday. Beth Twitty said that she felt an obligation to help others because of the outpouring of help that she has received.
Twitty, who has become an icon to some and a bane to others for her dogged search for her own daughter, told Miller that she felt an obligation to participate in the search for Tara because of the support she has received.
“She said she wanted to be helpful for a couple of reasons,” Miller told Crime Library. “She said, ‘so many people have helped me in Natalee’s case, I want to be able to start helping other people’.”
