“The Lincoln vehicle behind me actually belonged to that person. The vehicle was found abandoned at this location. We have not located her,” Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance said.
Police also questioned Jessica Hewitt’s husband, Hobbie Hewitt, about her being missing. Relatives say the two were recently separated.

“He got some knowledge, I believe, that the vehicle was down here. All we know was he was down here. We’re not prepared to draw any conclusions past that. That’s why we’re talking to him right now,” Chief Vance said.
