Person Who Took Kristi Cornwell Might Have Tried to Snatch Another Woman

At the scene of the kidnapping, police have also discovered signs of a struggle. Some of Cornwell's belongings turned up along Jones Creek Road, a rural road in north Georgia.

Richard Cornwell said his sister's boyfriend was not considered a suspect or a person of interest in the case.

Last year, another woman, Meredith Emerson, disappeared in the same area of northern Georgia. She was found murdered. Her killer was caught and put behind bars.

But the people combing the countryside for Cornwell say they can't believe this is happening again. "We're in a rural community, you wouldn't think it would be like this," said one man who lives in the area.

Friends and family started a "Pray for Kristi Cody Cornwell" group on Facebook. There are more than 9,000 members so far.

Anyone with information can call the Union County Sheriff's office at (706) 439-6038, or the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at (800) 597-8477.

ABC News' Chris Strathmann, Joshua Gaynor and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
