Family leads search party for missing Columbus woman as friends track social media

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Concerned friends and family members are doing their part to find a missing woman.

"Our friends have come together," Janet King said, "... to help me find my daughter."

A group, King said, with one common link - their love for 37-year-old Erin Collier. 

King and her daughter Sarah, Erin's sister, have been leading the search to find Collier, ever since she was last seen on Friday, March 16, the day she stopped by her mother's house.

The search for Collier continues on Facebook and social media. A group of her friends created a page, "Info on Erin Collier," for people to gather information on where she could be.

"These people have been chasing down tips, leads, asking folks, begging for tips and for somebody to come forward," King said. "Because somebody knows something."

This same group, took time Tuesday afternoon to cover the streets that Collier normally visits, forming a search party to find her.

The group's search covered all corners of Bibb City, stretching along the Chattahoochee River, as the men and women looked under every rock and manhole, looking for a sign Collier was there.

Both the mother and sister said Erin wouldn't disappear so suddenly if something wasn't wrong.

"She's a creature of habit," Sarah King said,  "and this ain't her. This is not something that she does."

"Every person standing in this yard right now knows that my daughter would not stay away from any of us," Janet King said.

As for how the Kings felt about this show of support from Erin's friends, they said they were grateful from the bottom of their hearts.

"There's no kind of appreciation I can show them, that would amount to how I feel about it," King said.

Collier is described as 5'3, 130 pounds with a prominent black rose tattoo on her right wrist. The public is urged to contact Columbus police with any tips or information.

Collier's family also said they're offering a $3,000 reward for any information that will help find her.
