Marty’s disappearance shook the core of his family. He was a devoted father and grandfather. He was the type of man to speak to his children every day if he was able to, so the fact that more than a year has gone by and there has been no word from Marty, his children know something bad must have happened to him.If anyone has any information regarding Mart Teague’s disappearance, please call the Statesville Police Department Violent Crimes Unit at 704-878-3535.You can follow Marty's case on Facebook at Missing Marty Dean Teague.This episode was co-researched and written by Marissa Jones and Erika Gwynn.

Being a "strict" single mom myself, however of a 19 y.o. young man, what I can definitely comment on is the fact children, regardless being over the age of 18 or not, will do what they want and find a way to do it. If you're going to victim shame this mom as if she didn't do enough or on her comments about what her daughter was engaged in, you're delusional yourself as to what you may have done as a teenager that YOUR parents disagreed with but you felt you could handle. Bottom line is Corinna had made her own choices but was ready to come home WHICH her mom was opening her home for Corinna to do so. What Corinna didn't do was ask to be abused, harmed, and/or murdered in the process of the choices she was making. These children do NOT have the frontal cortex developed to really comprehend what dangers they are getting themselves into. They are shown the sexy, glamorous side of things to them.. meaning money and material things. Not safety, security, and a way out whenever they want it. So before you blame the mom for her way of portraying her ordeal with losing a child, be more empathetic and remember you were once a teenager and your parents weren't as aware of everything you did either.

if the mom's story is true (I realized he was missing within 5-10 minutes), wouldn't the family friend be a suspect immediately, not the baby wondered off and we can't find him.

All these comments attacking this poor mother who has done nothing wrong. I don’t think they even understand the words they’re hearing. She’s missing her child and she gets attacked too... poor, poor woman. Good parenting is setting boundaries with consequences - the mother did that before Corinne got trafficked and everyone’s commenting like she did that after. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I hope she is found. Mental illness or a mental break is very plausible. A friend from HS lost her twin sister in an auto accident . It of course devastated her and several years later into adulthood she vanished after living a life of drugs, etc. She was presumed dead or just plain living as a drug addict but was finally seen living among the homeless. An old friend went to find her and saw this woman. He confronted her. She was reclusive and homeless yet, did not deny her name. She didn’t want to be bothered. Unfortunately, this “friend” did not call authorities. She has been seen on and off among the homeless for years. It’s very sad.

did the police look into the park ranger or whoever it was that claimed to have seen Mark with the little girl? He knew him and he was the only person who saw this mystery girl? Sounds weird to me.
