NASHVILLE, Tenn. - After three women were found in a Cleveland home after they disappeared a decade ago, the family of Tabitha Tuders is hopeful for her return.

Like the women in Cleveland, Tuders has also been missing for ten years, so this is the kind of news that gives her mother, Debra Tuders, hope.

"It makes our hope a whole lot stronger and our faith a whole lot stronger because you never know Tabitha might be right around the corner like they were," said Debra Tuders.

Her 13-year-old daughter disappeared the morning of April 29th, 2003. Tabitha left that morning to catch a school bus just a couple of blocks from her home. She never made it to the bus.

"Maybe she is close. Maybe someone did take her and have her close and that's what we're hoping for you know of course," said Tuders.

Investigators said what happened in Cleveland also helps with their search. Gary Kemper leads Metro's Cold Case unit and the division that searches for missing persons.

"We're hoping like everybody else when this information comes from Cleveland, Ohio that people might start noticing and might see something and call in and give us some information that we can follow up on," said Kemper.

He said the department still gets tips in the Tuders case and that even the smallest tip may lead to something big.

Tuders is just one of several missing people in Nashville. You can find some of them on the Metro Police Department's Missing Persons' Archive by clicking here.
