Brookhaven, GA, March 10, 2016 – The Post Reports – According to a WSBTV report, Brookhaven Police are seeking another interview with the man believed to be the last person who saw Janet Sue Miller, a missing 78-year old Brookhaven woman. Miller, who suffers from dementia, went missing on Christmas Eve after she attended service at Brookhaven Baptist Church.
Doug Smith, a member of Miller’s church, allegedly gave her a ride, and later picked her up from the Cherokee Plaza Kroger.
Drew Findling, Smith’s attorney, told Channel 2 that Police have already searched his client’s property, his vehicle, and gave authorities all the information he has. While Smith has not been named a suspect or person of interest, Police are wanting to speak with him again and say he has declined.
Miller’s family has hired private investigator, Rick Chambers, who told Channel 2’s Liz Artz, “He’s a door that’s open that needs to be closed before this investigation can move forward.”
Family members are asking that Smith cooperate and offer up any information he may have, as it could be very helpful in finding their loved one.
In January, Brookhaven Police Chief Gary Yandura outlined some of the efforts to locate Miller. Despite Police and community efforts, Ms. Miller has still not been located.
Some of the search efforts for Ms. Miller, according to the Chief, have included:
- Aerial search by the DeKalb County Helicopter
- A pond was drained
- Another pond was searched
- Several grid searches – one with a command post set up at her last seen location
- Search dogs and cadaver dogs have searched
- Flyers have been distributed at local shelters
- Area hospitals have been notified
- Media alerts
Ms. Miller was last seen wearing glasses, an unknown color long dress, and black shoes. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 90 pounds with long, gray hair and blue eyes.
Brookhaven Police is asking anyone with any information about Ms. Miller to call the Brookhaven Police Department at 404-637-0600.
