Family, Friends Search For Missing Teacher

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WCNC) -- Family and friends went door to door Sunday looking for any clues that could help them find a missing teacher in Charlotte.

Relatives remain hopeful something good will happen, but it's been a week since anyone has seen or heard from Bianca Tanner.

Investigators went back to Tanner's apartment on Druid Circle Friday morning. She recently moved in with her boyfriend but was still a teacher at Reedy Fork Elementary School in Greensboro.

Neighbors say police and K-9's scoured the backyard and woods behind the house just like they did Thursday, but it doesn't appear they found anything.

"They were back there watching the house and stuff," said neighbor Jackie Harrison.

Tanner's boyfriend reported her missing Sunday after the couple argued, police say.

Harrison says she didn't hear the fight or see Tanner leave.

"We don't have a lot of trouble over here, so I feel safe personally, but I'm leery about someone going missing."

A different neighbor says the argument was loud and over quickly. That neighbor didn't see Tanner either.

Now, Tanner's picture is on a missing person flyer. Relatives handed it out to neighbors. It's also in local store windows. The hope is someone knows or saw something.

Police say there's been no activity on Tanner's cell phone or bank accounts.

Family and friends knocked on doors and handed out fliers to every neighbor near Druid Circle on Sunday.

"It's been a very difficult time, just not knowing where she's at or if she's OK," Cerise Richardson said. "But we have been coming together and standing by our belief…that God is going to bring her home."
