Ford changed body styles of their F-150’s to this, or a very similar body style, in 2005.

Is the one described by someone that was seen in her yard sat night and sun morning a Dodge Ram?? I didn’t think we had a specific make on that one just that It’s been described I thought as having deep chrome wheels and I can’t remember specifics but even recently someone asked if one of the friends in the group had a truck matching this description . Could the one spotted at her house and the one that got pulled over be 2 different trucks??

Ocilla was saturated with black trucks that weekend. But Bo had a white truck.........

He was so adamant that is was HIS WHITE truck that was used. Makes me wonder why? I really hope we finally get an answer about the dispatch logs during Ryan's trial. To give Payne such a run around when he tried to get them and then to have it redacted once he did get a copy is truly mysterious to me...especially added to the bunk orchard search and the drug testing of a potential witness. Were all 3 of these things done by Irwin County Sheriff's Office?

*10/23* 12:00 am - A woman that lived a couple blocks down from Tara’s house on Paulk Street was backing out of her driveway and had to slam on brakes to avoid hitting a black truck that speeding down the street coming from the direction of Tara’s house. She described the truck as being an older model, black ford truck. (Dr. Godwin UAV episode 5 The Black Truck) 5:00-6:00 pm - Moshay and his friend were riding their bikes near Tara’s and saw a black truck parked in her yard. There was a white male inside the truck and according to Dr. Godwin this person made a nasty comment to one or both boys. Payne tracked down Moshay’s friend and asked him if the man said anything to them and he said the guy in truck did not say anything to him but he may have said something to Moshay. The friend described the truck as a "little black Ford Ranger" with "deep chrome wheels that sort of stood up, like street tires". When Payne asked what time they saw it, the friend said "it was late afternoon, the sun was going down but it was still daylight". Moshay was Tara’s neighbor at t he time. Payne was not able to interview him. (Dr. Godwin UAV episode 5 The Black Truck; Payne Lindsey UAV episode 10 George Harrison) 7:30 pm - Another woman that lived close to Tara (according to Dr. Godwin you could see Tara’s driveway from her porch) sees a black truck parked in the driveway (Dr. Godwin UAV episode 5 The Black Truck) 8:00-10:00 pm - A man from the Tifton area was visiting one of Tara’s neighbors and saw a black truck in Tara’s yard. There was a white male inside that appeared to be in his late 20’s to early 30’s. He made a nasty remark to the witness. The truck was described as a black late 90’s model truck. (Dr. Godwin UAV episode 5 The Black Truck) *10/24* 6:00 am - The husband of the woman that spotted the black truck in Tara’s driveway at 7:30 the evening before, saw a black truck at Tara’s house again when he left to go get a gallon of milk from the store. (Dr. Godwin UAV episode 5 The Black Truck)

I copied and pasted that from a timeline I started way back and it doesn't include the info from the woman that claimed Tara's car was not under her carport at 1:30 am. Sorry @maisey, I just read back over the comments and saw where you mentioned it.

@southga thanks that’s great. They can’t all be wrong about seeing a black truck.. do you think there’s one or two? One being HDs.. if only Mioshay or his friend could identify that male.

All them sightings that is Sunday arvo right ? What i dont understand is why the heck would people hang round there all day thats just asking for trouble or they were watching to see when something was noticed so as the others could organise and plan the hiding of the body 😔 Also didnt tara have a lunch she failed to show for on the sunday did that person go round to her house to see why she didnt show ?

It's just mind blowing! A few months ago I was talking to a lady who lived in her neighborhood, and I mean CLOSE.... She said that she and her husband were working on something in their yard on some project that had a deadline.??.. maybe in a shed or whatever, but she said she knows Tara's car was there and never saw any truck of any color.. not that she had any reason to just stand there and stare at her house, but she said they were both in and out of the house all through the night. Maybe I can reconnect with her and ask a few more questions

I saw a post saying that someone noticed Taras car was missing at one point late sat night there are also the talks of a joy ride ! this case is crazy and you cant write anything off and far from it being factual this place does have a way of exposing and bringing to light things certain people would like to dissapear

I did anyone else map the address from ep 7 "111 apricot st"? The streetview photo from 2008 shows a black 1990's looking truck with deep chrome wheels. This was where Bennie Merritt lived. Photo from Streetview: [Blktruck](//muut.com/u/upandvanished/s2/:upandvanished:EYj4:blktruck.png.jpg)

Either Bo or Ryan drove a black 1990s model single cab truck. By all accounts, this was an older looking smaller size pickup. This pic shows a newer mode full size F150. I’d say this is not the truck that was seen at and around Taras
