Community coming together to provide Christmas for children of missing mother

Posted: Updated:

The Cullman County community is coming together to provide Christmas for the three children of Tabitha Franklin, who disappeared August 13, 2009.

Family members say she disappeared after he ex-boyfriend picked her up from a friend's house.

Saturday, December 15th at Smith Lake Park, there will be three Christmas trees representing the three years the children have spent without their mother.

"She was always there for Christmas and birthdays, but she's not there anymore," said Dawson Franklin, Franklin's oldest son.

The last trace of Franklin was when a Walker County dive team uncovered articles of Franklin's clothing in Smith Lake.

"We will find Tabitha and we will find out what happened to her," said family friend Ken Moore. "We will search until I draw my last breath."

The Christmas event begins at 2 pm. Donations can be dropped off at Dodge City Town Hall.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. If you have any information, contact the Cullman County Sheriff's Office.
