CARMEL — The Federal Bureau of Investigation offices in Indianapolis and Atlanta are assisting local police in their investigation into the disappearance of a Carmel woman.

It comes a day after Carmel police named the husband of Ciera Breland (Locklair), 31, as a person of interest in her disappearance.

Carmel police say they were put in touch with police in Johns Creek, Georgia while investigating.

Johns Creek police Lt. Debra Kalish told WRTV Breland and her 37-year-old husband were in the city and its surrounding area visiting family right before she went missing.

Kalish said Breland's husband reported her missing to Carmel police on Feb. 26, a day after she was last seen between 10-11 p.m. in the 14400 block of Baldwin Lane in Carmel, which is near the intersection of Ditch road and 146th Street.

She was last seen wearing a black top and purple shorts.
