SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — Investigators searched the Cordova home of a missing woman who was last seen two months ago.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said Monday morning investigators were looking for clues at the Starcross Avenue home of Taquila Hayes.

Hayes, 41, disappeared after she clocked out from her job as a nurse at Methodist Hospital on May 21.

According to a missing person’s report, her husband said the last time he saw his wife was the first week of June. He said she came by for her son’s birthday, then left without giving any information about where she was going and leaving her cell phone and car behind.

Her husband then went on to tell detectives he went through his wife’s phone and discovered she had multiple affairs with different men she met on the internet.

“We want to make sure we don’t leave any stones unturned. So bringing in a set of eyes like the TBI with their expertise, you know, is a benefit to us,” Sheriff’s Office Capt. Anthony Buckner said.

Hayes’ sister told WREG she thinks detectives are moving in the right direction, but her mother said she feared the worst.

“To be honest with you, with all that has transpired, I don’t believe my daughter is living,” Hayes’ mother Roberta Nutall said. “That’s a hard thing to say. It’s killing me on the inside, but I just don’t believe my daughter is with us anymore.”

The sheriff’s office is asking for anyone with information about the disappearance to contact 901-222-5600.
