Search along Eno River for missing Durham woman, man

DURHAM, NC (WTVD) -- Two women have searched Durham County by foot and car. They spent Wednesday evening focusing their efforts on a wooded area along the Eno River. They're trying to find Tierra Mann, a 35-year-old mom who vanished just before Christmas.

"Each day that pass, it's getting harder for (the) children," said Mann's sister Shadea Mann-Mayo. "We've been taking it day by day."

The family isn't sure whether foul play could be to blame.

Mann and the father of one of her children, 70-year-old Carl Adams, disappeared December 19.

Her relatives are watching over her children, while also praying and searching.

"I'm very grateful and I thank God for my family because we've all been in this together. It's been hard on all of us," Mann-Mayo said.
