Georgia Smith was reported missing from her son's Champlin home on June 30, 1999, around 6:30 P.M. At the time of her disappearance she was driving a 1984 blue, 4-door Mercedes with Wisconsin license plate number TXP401, on Interstate 90. She was supposed to go to her cabin in Minong, Wisconsin, but never arrived. She was expected to travel through the cities of Cambridge, Minnesota, and Siren and Spooner, Wisconsin.
Although she is a Wisconsin resident, Smith spends most of the year at the home of her second-oldest son, returning to her lake cabin every week or so. She was looking forward to the weekend, when four of her children and their families would meet at her cabin for July 4th.
Smith has no history of disappearing, but does have some short-term memory problems. Her family was not aware she was missing until three days after she had left to drive to her cabin. She spent much of the summer there by herself and could be hard to reach. It was only when family members came for the July 4th weekend that they discovered she was missing.
Smith is described as shy. She doesn't smoke, drink or gamble and has no close friends. She is very independent. Authorities have found no signs of foul play nor any evidence of Smith at her cabin. Her credit card and bank accounts have remained inactive. Her car has never been located.
