Authorities hope new pictures will generate leads | News
Tampa, Florida - Investigators with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office have released more recent pictures in the case of a missing endangered adult.
Authorities are still trying to figure out what happened to 62-year-old Doris Carter.
They are hoping the current photos will help jog someone's memory if they happened to see Carter and her partner of two years, 38-year-old Kelly Moriarty, around the time they disappeared in December.
Carter and Moriarty were last seen at Carter's house in Plant City on December 16th. Moriarty's abandoned car was found in Manatee County four days later.
Her severed leg then washed ashore in St. Petersburg on December 27th.
Investigators with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office believe Moriarty is dead, but still don't know what happened to Carter. They are following leads and talking to anyone who had contact with the two women during that December time period.
"It's on track. The investigation is moving forward. Of course we'd like to move it a lot faster, but that's all going to depend on information that comes in from the public and from our detectives just out there beating bushes and digging," said Det. Larry McKinnon.
If you have any information that can help, you're asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
