South Georgia police search for missing Cobb County couple

ATLANTA (AP) — Police in south Georgia are searching for a Marietta couple who went missing after going to purchase a car from a seller they contacted online.

Telfair County Sheriff Chris Steverson said the Georgia State Patrol’s aviation unit has joined local officials searching Telfair and Wheeler counties for Bud and June Runion.

The couple drove to McRae on Thursday to meet someone who responded to an ad Bud Runion placed on Craigslist seeking a 1966 Mustang. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that family members became concerned when the couple did not return for a family function and did not answer their cell phone.

Police say the phone number the Runions called traces back to a disposable cell phone. A missing person’s report has been filed with Cobb County police.
