The Richmond County Sheriff's office needs your help in locating twin sisters. They've been missing for more than twenty years.

Authorities are re-releasing Dannette and Jeannette Millbrooks photos. The Millbrooks twins were 15 when they went missing. "I remember the day they left," said Shanta Sturgis.

It's a day that haunts Sturgis 23 years later. Sturgis never saw her two sisters Dannette and Jeannette Millbrooks. "When they left out the door, I asked them could I go? they told me no and it wasn't any of my business where they were going. they left and never heard anything since," she said.

The Sturgis Family went door to door passing out fliers. She says her sisters received little to no media attention.
Richmond County Investigators traced the Millbrooks Sisters last steps from the their home at 1813 Cooney Circle, to Mills street. The girls foot steps vanished after being seen on Picquet Avenue.

"My mom got so discouraged that she stopped calling and asking deputies questions. She got tired of them saying, it was closed and nothing we can do," she said.

Sheriff Roundtree is giving it another look. "We pretty much had to start from scratch. This is beyond a cold case. It was no case at all," said Sheriff Roundtree.

The Sheriff says there was no real investigation 20 years ago that produced any evidence that the sisters were dead or alive. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has released photos of what the Millbrooks women might look like now.

"I'm just hoping that someone has information on where they are. If they're alive maybe they could see themselves and give us a call, " she said.

A sisters bond that no amount of time away will break. If you know anything about the Millbrooks Twins whereabouts call the RCSO at (706) 821-1000.
