Missing Mississippi fugitive found Thursday in Longview

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A woman reported missing seven months ago in Mississippi has been found in Longview, and she's headed back in handcuffs.

Linda Gale Reed, 66, reported missing April 30 after her GMC Envoy was found in a wooded area on Interstate 55 near the south Crystal Springs exit. Surveillance video showed Reed at a Walmart in Hazlehurst the previous day, Mississippi authorities told television station WAPT.

Her purse, cellphone and keys were found inside the vehicle, which was not damaged. A $10,000 reward had been offered in her disappearance.

On Oct. 14, however, Copiah County Sheriff Harold Jones told the station that Reed was suspected of embezzling more than $20,000 two years ago from Moore's Fabrications, a place she worked since 1999.

According to WAPT, she was working in Longview as a bookkeeper. Gregg County sheriff's deputies arrested her at about 7:30 Thursday morning. She has since been transported back to Mississippi. According to online jail records, Reed was living in an apartment in the 600 block of Timberline Drive in Longview's Greggton area.
