Maranda Page Curtis, 15, who's birth name is Sara Michelle Ragsdale, went missing from her Summertown home in the Railroad Bed Pike area Thursday, November 22. 

NewsChannel 5 went to Columbia, Tennesee to meet with Melisha Ragsdale, her birth mother. But when the NC5 crew arrived at the home, her sister, Mary Ragsdale, was in handcuffs.

Officers on scene told us that Mary was seen on surveillance video from a local business with Maranda.
But Mary has been telling police that she hasn't spoken to the teen in months. Officers told NewsChannel5 that the video is enough evidence for them to have probable cause and arrest Mary for misleading police. 

Melisha says she has six kids but was forced to give them up for adoption.

Maranda is still missing.  She was described as having blonde hair, hazel eyes, and being 5' tall and 160lbs. Anyone with  information on her whereabouts was asked to call 762-3626 or 762-0450.
