#MISSING: Julie Smith, 48 - Covington, GEORGIA (her car was found abandoned along Georgia Highway 124 west of Jefferson with engine still running)

Numerous law enforcement officers searched areas of Jackson County Thursday and Friday without finding any trace of a Covington woman whose car was found abandoned along Georgia Highway 124 west of Jefferson.
A search is still under way for 48-year-old Julie Smith, described as a white woman, about 5 feet, 3 inches tall, 200 pounds, with blond hair and green eyes.
The search is concentrated in a wooded area near where the car was found.
"It's thick in the woods, but they've had a helicopter up and K-9 dogs out last night and again today," Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum said. "We don't know if she was picked up."
The search began Thursday shortly after 4 p.m. when a resident of Georgia Highway 124 called to report a Toyota Camry was blocking her driveway and the motor was still running, according to Mangum.
The vehicle appeared to have recent damage, including a missing rear tire, and a search revealed clothing under a vehicle parked at a nearby home, according to the sheriff.
Deputies found information regarding the missing woman and called one of her friend's in Covington, who provided her cell phone number.
Deputies pinged the phone and found it along the roadside near the Beef O' Brady Restaurant and Kroger in Jefferson.
Among those responding to the search included the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia State Patrol Aviation Section, Georgia Department of Corrections K-9 Unit, Georgia Department of Natural Resources K-9 Team and other local agencies.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
