Where is Tiffany Michelle Whitton?

     On March 7, 2011, 25-year-old Tiffany Michelle Whitton, a resident of Marietta, Georgia within the Atlanta metropolitan region, showed up in Dalton, Georgia with two other women and a man named Matthew Stone. That night, Tiffany, Tracy Chambers, Casey Renee Cantrell, and Matthew Stone broke into a woman's house and terrorized her with a tire iron. The victim managed to lock herself into the bathroom and call 911. Before fleeing the dwelling, Tiffany and her crew stole the woman's purse that had been lying on the couch. It contained $60.

     When questioned by detectives, Tiffany claimed the owner of the purse owed her money. She and her friends had gone to the house to collect what was hers. Investigators suspected that the victim and the four intruders had been in a drug deal. Tiffany, a user of illicit drugs, had paid the woman for pills, and when the supplier didn't deliver the goods, Tiffany and her friends raided the house to get her money back.

     A prosecutor charged Tiffany and her accomplices with armed robbery, burglary, and possession and use of drug-related objects. Following her guilty plea, the judge gave Tiffany a probated sentence.

     Tiffany, a former Hooter's waitress in Kennesaw, a suburban community north of Atlanta, disappeared on September 13, 2013. The mother of a 6-year-old daughter was last seen at two in the morning in the parking lot of a Walmart store not far from her home in Marietta, Georgia. Since that night she has not made contact with family members or friends. She was last seen with her boyfriend, Ashley Caudle. (A few weeks after Tiffany Whitton's disappearance, police arrested Caudle in a meth raid at his mother's house where he lived.)

     The missing woman's mother created a Facebook page called "Find Tiffany Whitton."

     On February 20, 2014, Marietta police officer David Baldwin, in referring to the multi-tattooed, five-foot-two-inch, 100-pound Whitton, said, "What really worries us is that she literally vanished without a trace."

     In July 2014, detectives executed a search warrant at Caudle's mother's house in Marietta where workman dug up her back yard looking for Tiffany Whitton's remains. The searchers came up empty handed.

     So, what could have happened to Tiffany Whitton? She could have run off to start a new life. However, because of her daughter, that didn't seem likely. It was also unlikely that some abductor was holding her captive. If dead, she could have killed herself in some remote location, or accidentally overdosed on drugs. If none of these events took place, someone may have murdered her. As a drug abuser, Tiffany rubbed shoulders with unsavory and dangerous people. Did she fail to pay a drug dealer? Did her criminal associates come to believe that she was a snitch?

     If Tiffany Whitton was murdered, her case will not move forward until someone who knows something about her disappearance calls the police, or someone stumbles upon her body. Finding a person who is dead is a lot more difficult than finding someone who is alive. Moreover, where do you even begin to look for a corpse?

     As of August 2016, Whitton's whereabouts remain unknown. There have been no arrests in the case.

    1. The "tragic update" is completely false. I wish I knew who this person is who decided to start such a rumor. It was very upsetting to our family. If that person would like to be man enough or woman enough to come forward and offer some meaningful evidence, I'm certain the police would like to have it -- I know I would!

  3. I don't believe the comment by anonymous...I've been following this very closely. There is no source to back up that comment.

  5. Confirmed with the family that Anonymous's comment is NOT true. I don't understand why someone would post something like that so haphazardly.

  6. Maybe anonymous is trying to tell info since Ashley was arrested the same day as his comment. I think the cops should look at Ashles brother, Jonathan Bailey as he is the one Ashley goes to when he's in trouble. Ashley was released from prison not long before the disappearance and is a very dangerous institutionalized drug addict. Also hee was back in a relationship pretty quick after the disappearance. He got back with his baby momma gin....one of them knows what happened. Ashley definitely knows.

    2. If you didn't hear it from her family don't post stupid things. Some people still have hope that their loved one is out there. Either way I just want closure for the family. She was a sweet and kind woman, and no matter which way it goes it's not fair or right for her or her family in what they are having to go through on a daily basis. Please keep your comments encouraging, and just let them know that your thoughts and prayers are with them and we hope they get answers.
