"This morning, a friend went back to the house to check on her and couldn't get inside so they called us [The Columbia County Sheriff's Office] and we gained entry," Morris added.
Investigators say her vehicle was in the garage but she couldn't be found.
Authorities spent much of the morning into the afternoon looking for clues at Deghelder's home off Wichita and Great Falls.
NewsChannel 6 learned that a cell phone was recovered from the Ivey Falls home. The phone is being taken to a crime lab in Atlanta for processing.
Later Thursday evening, NewsChannel 6 learned that some information was pulled from the phone and is now being analyzed.
Officials are reviewing some info on cellphone. Keep in mind, the technology to look into phones and other devices exist right in Columbia County at @CCSO_GA. But certain phones require another level of technology to gain access to info. #CSRA #GaNews @WJBF. https://t.co/GjugHHp81k— Shawn Cabbagestalk (@CabbageTV) July 26, 2018
Meanwhile, surveillance videos from nearby neighbors are also being reviewed, according to Morris. On Friday, NewsChannel 6 asked about what was seen on camera, Morris declined to say what was possibly found.
Also on Friday, authorities moved and towed away the car that was in Deghelder's garage. NewsChannel 6 was the only station on the scene at the time. Investigators were also seen moving items from the home to a truck parked in the driveway.
"It's a fairly quiet neighborhood. The Columbia County Sheriff's Department does an amazing job out here patrolling the area," Dickson added.
Deghelder moved into the neighborhood less than a year ago, mostly keeping to herself, according to neighbors.
She's 5'6", weighing approximately 140 pounds.
If you have any information on her location, please call the Sheriff's Office at 706-541-2800.
"Hopefully she will be found safe and there's no foul play involved," Dickson added.
