Recent evidence brought to light in a missing persons case could give investigators a new lead. 

Peggy McGuire, 28, went missing in McIntosh County during the holiday season but just this week, OSBI released new documents revealing evidence discovered at her home and property.

OSBI combed through McGuire’s home, where her children and their father still live, as well as 80 acres surrounding the residence. Records show investigators took swabs of blood-like stains on the couch and back porch.

Investigators also took samples of stains found in the bucket of a front loading tractor and discovered a leather glove in the father’s, Thomas McIntosh, truck that had red stains.

So far, no criminal charges have been filed; OSBI is continuing to test the samples.

In the meantime, Peggy’s friends and family are growing impatient.

“I know OSBI is working, but out in the public eye it seems like nothing is being done,” said Tina Bradford, Peggy’s friend.

The documents also reveal that OSBI recovered phone records, Facebook information and financial statements to aid in the investigation.
