A Fox News legal program this week is scheduled to take another look at the case of an Irwin County teacher who's been missing for seven years.

The "Justice With Judge Jeanine" show is scheduled to feature the search for Tara Grinstead.

That's according to Gary Rothwell, a retired GBI agent who investigated the case for years.

Grinstead lived in Ocilla and disappeared without a trace in October 2005.

Her body has never been found, and no one's been charged in the case.

Rothwell said he went to NY last Saturday for an interview on-set for "Justice with Judge Jeanine."

The episode airs this Saturday night at 9 p.m., and Rothwell says the Grinstead segment will last about 15 minutes.

Also interviewed by satellite, he said, was Tara's mother, Connie Grinstead.

Mark Furhman, best known as a Los Angelese police detective who investigated the OJ Simpson murder case, and a forensic pathologist, also discuss Grinstead's disappearance.

Rothwell, who retired earlier this year as special agent in charge of the GBI's Perry office, says there are no new developments in the Grinstead case. The Judge Jeannine segment he said, will just "keep it in the news."

Grinstead was 31 years old, a high school teacher, and local beauty queen.

In March 2011, divers searched Reedy Creek in Irwin County for evidence in the Grinstead case, but apparently found nothing.
