xx Family Keeps Memory Of Missing Daughter Alive
« Reply #15 on: Apr 28th, 2006, 8:59pm »

Saturday will be the three year anniversary of the mysterious disappearance of Tabitha Tuders, and her family is keeping her memory alive.


The East Nashville girl vanished on the way to her bus stop before school, three years ago, and she has never been found.

Friday night, there will be a candle light vigil for Tabitha at Bailey middle school beginning at 7:30. Then, Saturday, there will be a prayer walk at 8:00 in the morning.

Friends and family members will walk the route from the Tuders home to Tabitha's bus stop.

xx Families of Missing Find Each Other
« Reply #17 on: Jun 1st, 2006, 04:45am »

Thursday’s “Without a Trace” featured a familiar face. The show displayed a photo of 2-year-old Analyce Guerra, a Smyrna toddler who disappeared without a trace last month.


Coincidentally, Thursday was National Missing Children's Day. On this day, families of the missing found ways to support each other through a new organization.

Thursday, Analyce's case received national attention, and the families of other missing children received some local help.

Family members of the missing met at the Metro Police precinct. They've formed an alliance to offer support to families and to help find children, including Analyce.

Little Analyce Guerra disappeared more than a month ago. The harsh reality of the situation has just started to hit the family. Her 4-year-old sister sometimes wakes up crying.

“She'll grab my cell phone and say: ‘Hi, Ana. What are you doing? When are you coming home?’” the mother of the missing toddler, Eva Guerra said.

Their mother Eva has printed new missing signs.

“You can see her birthmark on this one,” Guerra said.

She has even posted a handwritten letter to the person who has her little girl.

“I pray the Lord touches your heart, and you bring her back home,” Guerra said.

That same prayer has echoed for years by families in Middle Tennessee. They're from different cities but share similar stories of loved ones gone missing.

Tabitha Tuders disappeared on her way to a bus stop three years ago.

“They're going through the same stuff we're going through. They’re like us,” said the father of missing teen, Bo Tuders.

A mother and daughter, Jennifer and Adrianna Wix, vanished in 2004.

“We would never have met, and now we're friends. We belong to a club nobody wants to belong to,” daughter and granddaughter of the missing women Kathy Holloway said.

“I remember being in Wal-Marts and other stores and seeing those photos of missing teenagers and think: ‘I can't imagine what those families are going through.’ Now I know,” Guerra said.

Eva Guerra plans to be part of the Tennessee Alliance for the Families of the Missing.

The group is new to Tennessee, but pledges to do whatever it takes to offer support to families and aid in the searches.

For more information on the Tennessee Alliance for the Families of the Missing, click here.

Also, tune into the “CBS Early Show” Friday morning. The show will feature a special segment on Analyce's disappearance.

xx Local Family Still Searching For Missing Daughter
« Reply #18 on: Jan 19th, 2007, 06:58am »

The case of boys discovered in Missouri after being abducted ended the way that all families of missing children hope it would end for them.

The family of Tabitha Tuders is one of those families.

The Tuders family is very happy for those families and glad the boys came home safely. It also gives them hope that one day Tabitha will come home as well.

"I love her to death. I talk about her everyday. There's not a day goes by that we don't talk about her," Tabitha's mother Debra Tuders said. "When I lost her a part of me went with her."

Tabitha was 13 when she disappeared nearly four years ago. She has walked only a few blocks from her east Nashville home to the bus stop, but she never made it to school that day and hasn't been seen since.

"Until she's found we're going to keep it up there," Tudors said. "I love her and I always will and I won't never give up on her and I hope that she knows I won't ever give up on her cause I'm not."

For years her family has continued the fight to find her, even keeping a banner outside of their home with her information.

"We got to keep the faith and we're going to find her. That will be the happiest day of my life," Tuders said.

Their faith renewed this week after learning two young Missouri boys abducted by a predator were found. One of the young men had been missing for four years.

"It gave us a lot of hope that we could find her. It up lifted our spirits just way, way up there," Tabitha's parents Beaw and Brenda Tuders said.

Debra still keeps Tabitha's room just as it was the day she left for school, hopeful that one day her daughter will be back again.

"We're not giving up hope we're going to hope and pray every day that we get her back," Tuders said.

Tabitha's case is a prime example of why parents need to be on the look out.

To help kids stay safe, parents should tell their kids to try to not walk to the bus stop alone, and to never get into a car with a stranger.

The Tuders said they plan to continue their volunteer work to help other families search for their missing loved ones. They said helping others helps in their healing process.

xx "4 Years Since East Nashville Teen Disappeared, No
« Reply #19 on: May 8th, 2007, 4:22pm »

Sunday marks the 4 year anniversary since an east Nashville girl disappeared.

Sunday night family members and friends remembered Tabitha Tuders at a candlelight vigil.

Tuders went missing from her bus stop in east Nashville on her way to school in 2003. Four years later, the family still doesn't have any answers.

Missing children's organizations from all over the United States came to Nashville to help search for Tabitha.

One of the volunteers who came, from out of state was the father of Shawn Hornbeck. Hornbeck was found in Missouri earlier this year nearly four years after his disappearance.

VALLEY GRANDE -- Mary Kay Nichols felt for the grieving couple on the television and took their story to heart. She didn't want her daughter kidnapped like their girl had been.

So she decided to sit down with 10-year-old Hannah right then and warn her about strangers.

Their heart-to-heart talk paid off. Two months ago, Hannah knew that she needed to scream and head toward home when a man tried to grab her near a school bus stop.

Joe Earl "Puddin'" Edwards, 52, now stands charged with enticing a child for immoral purposes and is in the Dallas County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

Edwards lived within a few miles of the Nichols house in Dallas County. He once served a year in jail after pleading guilty to first-degree sexual abuse involving another 10-year-old girl.

"(Edwards) told police that he was going to ask Hannah for a date," Nichols said. "They asked him what his definition of a date was and he said he was going to have sex with her."

Hannah told authorities that just before 7 a.m. one day in August as she waited for the school bus to pick her up, a man drove up and waved at her to join him. When the man got out of his car and ran toward her, Hannah said she raced back to her house screaming "Mama! Mama!"

Nichols heard her daughter's cries for help. As she rushed to help the child, she said the man ran back to his car and drove off.

Using Hannah's description of the car, Deputy Barry Hood stopped Edwards, who was later arrested.

Nichols firmly believes the story of Debra and Bob Tuder, that grieving couple on the television, helped save her Hannah. She decided to call the producers of the program, "Maury," and thank them.

"I just wanted to express my appreciation for the show about Tabitha (Tuber)," Nichols said. When she called, she and Hannah were asked to be on the show to talk about their experience.

They agreed. Their segment will be seen on the syndicated program hosted by Maury Povich at 5 p.m. Wednesday on WNCF-TV.

During taping of the program a few weeks ago, Nichols told Povich she believed Edwards had been stalking her daughter. The Tuders made a surprise appearance during the taping and sat with Nichols and Hannah for a few minutes.

"I'm just amazed that our story helped (Hannah) get away and that she listened to what her mother said," Debra Tuder told Povich.

Nichols said the Tuders' story spurred her to action.

"I told Hannah to run away, scream and fight anybody who might try to harm her," said Nichols. "I reminded her again of that only a week or so before it happened to her."

Mary Kay and husband Jeremy have a 4-year-old daughter too. As soon as Kaylee is old enough, they will teach her to do the same things that helped her older sister avoid possible harm, they said.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said Monday afternoon that Edwards may plead guilty to the enticement charge. Jackson also will seek a harsher penalty than the one meted out to Edwards a decade ago.

"We have declared war on child molesters in Dallas County and have sent a lot of them to prison," Jackson said. "(Edwards) has given a statement which makes it pretty clear what he was trying to do to that little girl."
