Police Worried About a Missing Local Woman

Local authorities are expanding their search for a Springfield woman who's been missing for more than a week and a half.

Bay County sheriff's investigators joined with Springfield police in the search for 43-year-old Tanya Farmer, also known as Tanya Langston.

She was last seen on July 17th at her apartment off Transmitter Road.

Farmer worked at the Lynn Haven McDonalds restaurant, and was wearing her blue McDonald's uniform.

Family members assured authorities this is very unusual behavior for Farmer. Authorities are concerned because they believe Farmer may have been involved in a drug transaction at the time of her disappearance.

They've been using tracking dogs to search the area around Farmer's apartment and a wooded area off of Tram Road.

If you have any information about Tanya Farmer please call the Bay County sheriff's office at 747-4700 or CrimeStoppers at 785-TIPS.
