The SCSO reported Columbiana teen Haleigh Green missing on July 7, and said Green was last seen in the area of Egg and Butter Road in Columbiana on July 6 at about 9:30 a.m. Green allegedly did not attend her classes at Lawson State Community College on July 6 or 7.

According to a post on the Help Find Haleigh page, Green drives a 2003 red Ford Mustang.

On the afternoon of July 11, the SCSO issued a photo of a Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck, and asked for the public’s help in locating the driver for questioning in the missing person case. At about 6:30 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office announced it had located the owner of the pickup with the help of a message to the office’s Facebook page.

“A message received on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page led investigators to the location of the owner, who was cooperative and helpful,” read an SCSO release. “However, there are no new updates in the investigation at this time.”

Many Columbiana residents have banded together to assist in the search for Green, and held a prayer rally at Shelby County High School on July 8.
