Finding Bad Links
LDS Girl missing nearly 5 months

Summarized by Gerry Spencer

For Smiths, birthday no celebration
Redding CA Record Searchlight 6Jan99
By Candace L. Brown: Record Searchlight assistant city editor

This article gives an update on 17 year-old Central Valley High School student Tera Smith, a member of the LDS Church, missing nearly 5 months now. "Hard Copy" and "America's Most Wanted" have aired Tera's story and detectives believe that the right tip to finding Tera could come in at any time. The Anonymous Tip phone number is 243-2319 and Sheriff's Department of Missing Persons hot line number is 245-6142.

A poem that Terry Smith, and LDS Bishop, wrote about his daughter's disappearance was set to music and recorded. Copies may be purchased at the family owned Oasis Fun Center on Cascade Boulevard in north Redding. The proceeds fund a scholarship in Tera's name.

The article also relates how the Smith family has emotionally dealt with celebrating the holiday season and Tera's birthday and includes a poem that Tera penned shortly before her disappearance.
