The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) said on Friday investigators now believe Bonny Cooner was a victim of foul play and did not disappear on her own. They also said they believe those closest to Cooner may know information that is significant to finding her.
For miles in Franklin County, people have hung signs asking for leads in the disappearance of Cooner.
"Everybody is really worried where she's at or where she could be," said Christy McKenzie, a resident.
Cooner, 33, lives in Canon with her fiance, Brent Shubert, and her 12-year-old son. Shubert said he met the love of his life three years ago. CBS Atlanta's Katie Brace spoke with Shubert on Thursday when Cooner was still considered a missing person.
"I didn't think anything could happen. I was planning on spending the rest of my life with her, still do," said Shubert.
Shubert said last Monday Cooner was home with her son who was having a friend over for a sleepover. He said he was at work when he received a text from Cooner saying supper was in the microwave. Shubert said when he got home late that night he went to bed and did not see Cooner.
When he woke up Tuesday Shubert said Cooner was nowhere to be found and he called her family. Her sister called the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
"She's (Cooner) been emotional - highs and lows the past several weeks," said Shubert.
Officers said Cooner's car was still at the house. Her son is now staying with Cooner's family.
"Just wondering what happened or where she's at, there's been a lot of people looking at me to give answers and I can't," said Shubert.
The Franklin County Sheriff's Office brought in the GBI this week. Both agencies have interviewed Cooner's friends, family and acquaintances to figure out her habits. GBI investigators have also searched Cooner's computer, cell phone records and house.
On Friday, investigators said they had discovered significant forensic evidence that they are examining.
Volunteers have also searched the area and found nothing.
