A full month has passed since 31-year-old Brittany Ann Miller was reported missing in nearby DeKalb County, Tennessee. The search for Miller was spearheaded by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department, where Sheriff Patrick Ray said deputies have searched by ground, air, and on Center Hill Lake. However, there have been no signs or clues in locating her.  An investigator of the District Attorney General’s Office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are assisting in the case

Sheriff Ray told media that Murfreesboro Police, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office and the THP have all aided in the search for Miller. The Sheriff stated, “Since the missing person report came in July 4, we have done grid searches around her property where she lives and also other property around there. The grid searches are conducted using officers on-foot and in all-terrain vehicles. The Smithville-DeKalb County Rescue Squad has been instrumental in helping us do that. We also had cadaver and tracking dogs from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department and Murfreesboro Police Department come down and we had StormPoint Emergency Response deploy a drone to do an aerial search. The Tennessee Highway Patrol also did fly over helicopter searches and the Rescue Squad even conducted water searches using sonar around boat ramps and other locations on the lake.”


According to Sheriff Ray, Miller was last seen on July 4th around 4:00 p.m. at her home on Hurricane Ridge Road in Smithville, TN. At the time of her disappearance, she was reportedly wearing a black t-shirt that possibly had “DCHS Tigers” on the front. She was also wearing black knee length shorts and black tennis shoes with black “no show” socks. Miller is described as being a white female who stands at 5-foot 4-inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. She has blue eyes and dark brown shoulder length hair. She also wears black framed glasses and has a tattoo of “Adam” across her forearm and “Tyler” on her right ankle.

The case is still OPEN and on-going. If anyone has information as to Miller’s whereabouts, please give central dispatch a call at 615-215-3000 or phone the sheriff’s department’s crime tip line at 615-464-6400. Miller has been listed with the National Crime Information Center as a missing person.
