Thursday, May 01, 2014

Christopher Blake said he picked up a woman he knows only as Monica and took her to a motel in Dalton.

When he awoke the next morning, Monica was gone along with his Rolex watch and wallet.

He took Chattanooga Police to a couple of spots where he was told that she stayed. But there was no sign of her at a house on Windsor Street or another on Rawlings Street.

He is missing Ghostkids, Madea and one more.

Donald Brown said he was at work at Coca-Cola on Amnicola Highway when he got a call on his cellphone.
