Haralson County, Georgia, woman considered missing/endangered, suspect wanted

A task force in Haralson County, Georgia, has been put together in hopes of finding a missing woman who may be with a male companion, who is believed to be eluding police.

Authorities say Jessica Victoria Earl, also known as Jessica Jones King, was last seen June 8 when she was involved in a domestic situation with Jeffery Seth Odom. The pair was then seen walking away from a residence on Little Circle near Tallapoosa, Ga.

Jessica is a white female, weighs around 120 pounds and is 5’5″ and she is considered to be in danger.

Jeffery is 6’1″ and weighs 170 pounds. Police say he is eluding law enforcement due to theft by receiving stolen property, has a felony warrant and two bench warrants for drug possession and obstruction and possession of firearm by a convicted felon. He is known to possess a firearm and is considered dangerous.

On Monday, Chief Deputy Joel McSwain of the Haralson Sherriff’s Office released a lengthy statement that reads:

The Haralson County Sheriff’s Office is currently searching for a missing/endangered person, Jessica Victoria Earl, AKA Jessica Jones King a white female, DOB 10/16/1986 who is 5’5 and weighs around 120 lbs.

Jessica was last seen in a domestic situation with Jeffery Seth Odom, W/M DOB 6/10/1982 who is 6’1 and weighs around 170 lbs.

According to sources, neither Ms. Earl nor Odom have a place of residence and have both been staying with friends. Odom is also eluding Law Enforcement due to a Theft by Receiving Stolen Property – Felony warrant as well as two bench warrants for felonies that include Drug Possession, Obstruction and Possession of Firearm by Convicted Felon. Odom has an extensive criminal history that includes Obstruction type charges as well as violent offenses. He is known to possess a firearm so he should be considered dangerous.

According to sources, Earl seemed to be under the influence of drugs and after a confrontation between the two of them, left walking away from a residence on Little Circle in the western part of Haralson County near Tallapoosa, Ga.

“This being said, we understand that Ms. Earl is a human being with an obviously caring family who are seeking answers to the whereabouts and well-being of their loved one, and to this, we sympathize with them all”, said McSwain. “A telephone believed to belong to Ms. Earl was found in a wooded area not far from the residence she walked away from and at this time, with the assistance of the Paulding Haralson Drug Task Force, we are attempting to recover information contained in it and hope that provides information to assist in our search.”

McSwain further said, “Last week, a task force was formed including investigators, the warrant/fugitive team, and top administrators of the Sheriff’s Office have searched extensively for both Earl and Odom with the emphasis being finding Ms. Earl, who we are very concerned about at this time. We would like to thank the Paulding Haralson Drug Task Force along with the GBI whose support have been invaluable while we continue to investigate this around the clock. These searches have included wooded areas of possible hide-out locations as well as over 15 residences, some multiple times, and other areas in Haralson, Polk and Carroll Counties.”

During those searches, two wanted persons (unrelated to this case) were taken into custody and others have provided possible leads to the whereabouts of Ms. Earl and Odom. Two other subjects were arrested and charged with Hindering Apprehension in this case. The two subjects, Tyla Toliver, 31 year old white female from Tallapoosa, GA and Candy Chandler, 40 year old white female from Villa Rica, GA were charged due to them picking up Odom on Thursday, June 21, 2018 and taking him to a residence near Villa Rica for the night knowing he was being sought by Law Enforcement.

“We continue to receive sightings of Ms. Earl and Odom and we are investigating each and every tip that comes in. We continue to urge the public to call if they have any tips, information or sightings that can assist in the investigation, “McSwain said.

“Finally, we understand that people are eager for information in this case and we respect this, but we are not at liberty to divulge all of the Intel and information that we have received and are following up on, “said McSwain. “We also realize the negative comments and criticism placed on social media about the investigation but the citizens of Haralson County can rest assured that the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office is, as always, committed to the professional standards that Sheriff Mixon demands. Our goal is to find Ms. Earl and return her to her family along with apprehending Odom with the safety of the public in mind.”

“To the citizens of Haralson County and to the family of Ms. Earl, please feel confident that we are making every effort to find both Ms. Jessica Earl and Jeffery Seth Odom.”
