Linda Gale Reed indicted for embezzlement

HAZLEHURST, Miss. —

Linda Gale Reed will be arraigned Friday before Copiah County Circuit Judge Lamar Pickard on three counts of embezzlement.
 
Reed was served with an indictment June 7 at the county jail. The court hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday in Hazlehurst.
 
The 65-year-old Reed was reported missing in April of 2012. Her status changed from missing to wanted for embezzlement on Oct. 15, 2012.
 
Authorities say Reed allegedly embezzled $20,000 from her Mississippi employer, Moore's Fabrications. She had worked for the company since 1999. They say an accountant found the money missing from petty cash fund.
 
Her family searched for her for nearly five months before she was found in Longview, Texas. She was working as a bookkeeper under her own name.
