Friends and family of a missing 31-year-old mother from Indiana, last seen in Georgia, plan to hold an organized search this Friday.

The volunteer-organized solicitation comes two weeks after a missing person’s report said she was last seen in Indiana and about 20 days after her family last saw her in Georgia.

Who filed the missing person’s report for Ciera Breland?

Ciera (Locklair) Breland was reported missing by her husband, Xavier Breland Jr., 37. The missing person’s report filed with the Carmel Police Department indicates that Ciera left her home in the Brookstone Park subdivision in Carmel, Indiana shortly after 10 p.m. to walk to the nearest store. She was apparently wearing a black top and purple shorts in the mid to high 20s that night.

Family members said police told them she never got there and there was no surveillance video of her entering the store. They are also concerned because his home phone, work phone and a cell phone were all left with his ID card, credit cards and the couple’s five-month-old son. Family members said she had the Burner’s phone to contact them in case of an emergency.

It would take another five days before police identified her husband, Xavier Breland Jr., 37, as a person of interest in her disappearance and arrested her on an unrelated warrant in Coweta County, Georgia. He has not been charged in connection with her disappearance.

Was Ciera Breland last seen in Georgia?

On February 19, Ciera and her husband traveled to Georgia to see family members. Ciera stayed with her father in Cleveland, Georgia that night. They say the next day she left to go to her husband’s mother’s house about 45 miles southwest of Johns Creek, Georgia. Metropolitan Atlanta has become the focus of family members who believe this was Ciera’s last honorable sighting.

Family members said there was little to no evidence that Ciera returned to Indiana when her husband drove home. That’s why Johns Creek became the focus of their efforts to find her.

The Johns Creek Police Department worked with the Carmel Police Department in Indiana as well as the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the FBI on the case.

What are we doing in Ciera Breland’s research?

Volunteers gather at the Johns Creek Police Department Friday at 10 a.m. to survey the area. They’ll ask people and businesses if they’ve seen Ciera, Xavier, or the car they drove to Georgia in.

Family members are hoping someone saw the vehicle within a week of February 20 and will come forward to tell investigators when and where it happened. The couple were driving a white 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan bearing the Georgia RMB 5869 tag. A frame from FSU Law School surrounds the license plate.

Ciera is described by police as 5ft tall and weighing around 120lbs with blonde hair.

What happened to Ciera Breland’s 5-month-old son?

Ciera Breland gave birth to her son in October. She had filed for maternity leave with the Georgia courts in August, with her leave due to begin in November.

Ciera and Xavier, the father of her child, would end up moving to a house just outside Indianapolis earlier this year.

When Xavier was arrested in Indiana on the outstanding Coweta County warrant, sources told FOX 5 News the child was placed with state officials.

On Tuesday, family officials said Ciera’s parents were finally able to take custody of the baby and are trying to get him back to Georgia.
