CHARLOTTE, NC — The search for a missing North Carolina teacher has expanded into Virginia.

Charlotte police said they are now investigating Bianca Tannner’s disappearance as a homicide.

The 31-year-old, who was first reported missing by her boyfriend last Sunday, moved from Greensboro to Charlotte last month.

Former Richmond Police Chief Rodney Monroe, now the chief of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police force, has publicly said some witnesses have not been telling the truth, and is asking for more people with information to come forward.

“I just don’t want to sit on this one,” Monroe told WBTV. “Cause I just don’t feel in talking to investigators involved – we just don’t feel this is a simple missing person case.”

CBS 6 News is working to find out where in Virginia police are looking.
