In their search for a missing former corrections official and an inmate facing murder charges, authorities announced a key discovery Friday: they located the car they previously believed the pair was traveling in.  The car had been in a Tennessee tow lot for about a week, after local officials found it abandoned in the woods and without any identifying information last Friday -- the same day the pair went missing -- and had it towed. It means the two drove roughly two hours north to Williamson County, Tennessee, after disappearing from a county jail in Florence, Alabama, Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said during a Friday news conference.

"We know now where the car is, we know what direction they went," the sheriff said. "We're trying to canvass the area for any witnesses, also trying to research, see if any stolen vehicles were reported in that area during that time." Authorities believe the vehicle may have had mechanical problems which prompted the abrupt stop in the area. But the sheriff said investigators don't yet know if the pair stole another vehicle, or got a ride with someone else and where they may have headed. "We're sort of back to square one," he said. "After Friday afternoon, when they abandoned that car, which direction they went from there, we don't know." Vicky White, 56, and Casey White, 38, have now been missing for more than a week. The two, who officials say may have had a romantic relationship, are not related.
