SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Authorities are searching for a missing Bedford County teacher who moved from Shelbyville to Murfreesboro last week.
Harris Middle School teacher Shelley Mook was last seen leaving the school around 3 p.m. Monday.
Though cell phone records, Detective Sgt. Brian Crews said they believe she then went to her ex-husband's house in Bedford County to drop off their daughter.
Mook was supposed to meet a maintenance man at her new apartment on Monday afternoon, according to the landlord, but never showed up.
Her car, a white, late model Pontiac Grand Prix was found burned out in Murfreesboro Monday night.
In a statement released Thursday morning, Harris Middle School Principal Bill Pietkiewicz said, "Shelley Mook is an excellent member of the Harris Middle School faculty and well-liked by students and staff. She is in her second year of teaching and is helping to sponsor our student council. Our thoughts and prayers are focused on her safe return."
Anyone with information on Mook's whereabouts is urged to call Shelbyville police at 931-684-5811.
