Mother: Lynch Warned Something Might Happen to Her

It's been a week today since Swainsboro beautician Cindy Lynch was reported missing. And as you can imagine, this has been a tough time for her family. But now it seems to be getting worse with many rumors and accusations flying around on who may be responsible

Today we spoke with Cindy's mother and her husband, who say it's bad enough that there is no new information on Cindy's whereabouts a week into the investigation, but the horrible rumors flying around just make it worse. As investigators continue their search, her disappearance is now tearing her family in two.

"I want to find my wife," said Chet Lynch, who has been married to Cindy for the last three years. He calls his wife a beautiful, sweet woman with a good heart.

Today he and his family waited for any new information. Just a short distance away, Cindy's family stood apart from Chet worrying, wondering about what may have happened.

"She was afraid that there was something going on," Cindy's mother, Joyce Toulson, said.

Toulson says just days before her disappearance, Cindy told her something bad could happen to her. "'I just feel like something is going to happen,'" Toulson quoted Cindy as saying. "She said, 'I'm telling you, if something happens to me you need to call authorities and get help.'"

Chet Lynch worries it's those words being said on both national and local television that may insinuate he had something to do with it.

"It's an unfortunate situation, that they chose that, it's not what Cindy would've wanted," he said. "Cindy would want us to remain united together."

But Cindy's mother says she is just following the instructions her missing daughter gave her, less than 24 hours before her disappearance: "'if anything happens to me, ya'll better be doing something.'"

We spoke with Thunderbolt police this afternoon and they say this case is still being handled as a missing persons case, and there are no suspects at this time.
