Fourth Week of Investigation into 12-Year-Old Maria Gomez-Perez’s Disappearance: No New Leads
Missing: Maria Gomez-Perez

Today, June 27th, marks the fourth week of the investigation into the disappearance of Maria Gomez-Perez, a 12-year-old girl from Gainesville, who was last seen at her home on Wednesday, May 29. Maria was reported missing the following day.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office has yet to determine Maria’s whereabouts but remains vigilant in the search for her. Despite the extensive investigation, there have been no significant breakthroughs.

The reward fund for Maria’s safe return remains at $50,000, thanks to generous donations from private citizens. The announcement of the increased reward on June 19 prompted dozens of additional tips, but none have led to viable information about Maria’s location.

Investigators have followed promising leads across multiple states, including South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Illinois, and Maryland, but none of these leads have brought them closer to finding Maria.

The search for Maria involves cooperation with several local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The FBI, Homeland Security, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), and numerous other agencies are playing integral roles in the investigation.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office emphasizes its commitment to bringing Maria home safely. They acknowledge the community’s frustration with the lack of answers but assure the public that they are not giving up hope. They continue to seek key information that could lead to Maria’s discovery.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) tip line remains open at 770-503-3232, and tips can also be sent via email to intelrequest@hallcounty.org. Anonymous tips are accepted, and 911 remains available for urgent information. The Sheriff’s Office urges anyone with information to come forward to aid in the search for Maria.
