Hunt County and CUE continue search for Carrie Mae Parker

Quinlan woman Carrie Mae Parker has been missing since 1991 and the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office and the organization, Community United Effort (CUE), are furthering their investigation.

The North Carolina based non-profit agency has been working closely with Hunt County Investigators and recently used trained cadaver dogs to search for and detect human remains around the properties linked to Carrie Mae Parker in the Waco Bay Estate subdivision just south of West Tawakoni.

Hunt County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Haines said that he plans to provide further details on any and all potential findings from the recent investigation in the coming days. 

On Oct. 13, a candlelight vigil was held for the Hunt County Missing Six. Carrie Mae Parker was one of the six who was recognized during the vigil that was used to raise awareness and maintain interest in her missing persons case.
