Where is Natalie Jones: Family of missing Georgia woman desperate for answers
The family of a Georgia woman who vanished in early July is begging for answers about what has happened to their loved one.
Young mom, Natalie Pearl Jones disappeared on July 5th. Jones, age 27, was last seen in Opelika, Alabama near River Chase Drive. Jones had driven from Heard County, Georgia to Jackson’s Gap, Alabama to celebrate the Fourth of July with friends.
Since Jones’ disappearance, her family has not stopped searching for her. They have tried to retrace Jones’ steps on the day she disappeared. “What we’ve done as a family is just hours on the road, driving the route she may have taken, going down dirty roads in Franklin. We’ve just done a lot of driving.”
Bishop told News 3, the Heard County Sheriff’s Department is leading the investigation not the GBI.
“They are not the lead on this case, and the reason why she’s on the GBI missing persons list because we as a family requested for her to be added to that list.”
Jones has a very distinctive car, a hot pink four door Chevrolet Cavalier with a blue stripe. The car’s Georgia license plate number is RVE6177.

The family of a Georgia mom who mysteriously vanished over the Fourth of July weekend are desperate for answers and for her safe return.
Natalie Jones, 28, of Grantville, was last seen on July 4 as she drove away from a friend’s home in Opelika, Alabama, between 10:20 p.m. and 11 p.m. According to her sister, Jessica Bishop, someone sent a text from Natalie’s phone around at around 12:52 a.m. on July 5. It’s the last known message from her Jones’ phone.
“I made it,” the text read.
Bishop told CrimeOnline that her sister was at a Fourth of July party with several friends at home off of Riverchase Drive in Opelika, but none of the friends knew where Jones planned to drive to after she left.
Police reportedly tried to access additional information from Jones’ cellphone, but Bishop said there was “minimal activity” available because Jones used a texting app.
Jones’ phone last pinged “from a south tower in Ephesus near Franklin, Georgia,” at 4:40 a.m. on July 5, according to Bishop. Since then, the phone has been turned off, something Bishop previously said was out of character for her sister.
Bishop added that Jones would never willingly leave her children, two sons, ages 11 and 4, and was in good spirits and “hopeful for the future.”
Family members are now pushing for additional assistance; they’ve requested the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to take over the case.
The Georgia State Patrol aviation team conducted an aerial and ground search in Franklin County last Wednesday but found no evidence. Authorities also searched a lake in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, according to Bishop, but found nothing.
