Missing Teacher's Family, Friends Come to Search for Her


by Brent Frazier

Shelbyville, TENN. - Nearly one week to the day since Shelley Mook was last seen, her mother, her brother, and her best friend are in middle Tennessee to help maintain the momentum of the search for their missing loved one.

"She loves teaching, and she loves being with her daughter,"  said Debbie Sikora, Shelley's mother from Pennsylvania.

Everyone agrees, Shelley Mook, an 8th grade teacher at Harris Middle School, would never leave her daughter, Lilly, 6, this long with no contact.

"She's an amazing mother who loves her daughter more than anything else," said Patrick Jones, Shelley's brother, also from Pennsylvania.

The family is in town to ignite the search for Shelley, 24, and to plan the Sunday night vigil that more than 100 people attended, on the steps of the Bedford County Courthouse.

Shelley Mook's Pontiac Grand Prix, burned beyond recognition, was located last Monday night in rural Rutherford County. The divorced mother of one had also just recently relocated to an apartment in Murfreesboro, her family said. Shelbyville Police detectives have officially handed over the case to the Bedford County sheriff, who's working the case as a missing person.

Family and friends are also offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Shelley Mook's safe return.
