GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — A crowdfunding page has been set up to raise money to help in the search for a missing Guilford County Schools teacher.

Bianca Richardson Tanner, 31, was last seen in Charlotte on June 8. Police are now investigating her case as a homicide.

The crowdfunding page at GoFundMe.com is seeking to raise $10,000.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department also is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

“The family would like to add to that amount in the hopes that someone will come forward with additional information about Bianca’s whereabouts,” a statement on website reads.

So far, $1,635 has been raised.

Tanner was hired by Guilford County Schools in 2004 and was working at Reedy Fork Elementary School at the time of her disappearance. She had recently gotten an apartment with her boyfriend in Charlotte.

According to a search warrant, Tanner’s 3-year-old son told police that her boyfriend, Angelo Smith, had abused her.

    How about they just lock up the boyfriend, ex husband, girlfriend, other boyfriend, etc etc…..not rocket science that someone close did this to her, so lock them all up until someone cracks. Solution solved!

    Truth be told, it seems like the police are sitting on this investigation. Even if he deleted stuff off of his phone, the police can get his phone records showing all texts and calls and hers as well, I don’t understand what’s taking so long. And where in the world is he? He apparently guilty to be deleting stuff and hiring a lawyer, they need to lock him up!!!! And where was the son when she so called left crying? How did he get the ex husbsnd phonr number to call him to pick the son up? Something in the pot is not clean!!!

    I guess I’m an idiot but it seems if the POS boyfriend were to be taken into custody, that might help the cops get the truth by giving him a taste of his own medicine – beat the sh*t out of him
