Missing Teacher's Husband Skips Town after Questioning

MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - As the search continues for a missing Germantown mother, police are now looking for her estranged husband as well. Investigators believe Christopher Jones has skipped town.

When Heather Jones, a teacher at Frayser Elementary, didn't show up for work Tuesday, police were alerted. Her car was at her house but her purse, keys and cell phone were missing.

Police have expanded their search to several different wooded areas around the woman's home after finding nothing inside her husband's townhome.

Wednesday night around 9 p.m., residents of the Westminister Townhomes in Germantown knew exactly why police were there.

"I'm not surprised, all I can say is he's a very strange neighbor," said one neighbor.

Another neighbor added, "Undercover cars come up, then the police car, then the forensic van."

None of the neighbors wanted to be identified.

Tuesday, police interrogated Christopher Jones, the husband of missing school teacher, Heather Jones. By the time they executed a search warrant on Wednesday, the home was cleared out.

According to Germantown police, they found nothing. It appears Jones has skipped town. He turned the electricity off and left two car seats behind.

"I never trusted him. He was a very odd person. I didn't know about anything until yesterday when someone told me what happened. Doesn't sound good."

Police won't call Jones a suspect, but neighbors will.

"Yeah, I don't want to judge anybody or anything but yeah, there's just a lot of odd things that happened before."

Friends say Heather filed for divorce early this year after she caught her husband cheating on her. She also filed for an order of protection from him after she filed for divorce.

The couple has two children who are safe with family.
