  • Details of Disappearance
    Tersak called her cousin in Garner one June night in 2009 and told her she was driving from Asheville with her young son for a visit. Her husband said he remembers his wife speaking to her cousin on the phone, but then caught a ride with a woman named “Jen” the next day. He said the Clayton address she gave for him to pick her up the day before Father’s Day was bogus. He saw her briefly several months later, but then she disappeared permanently. Terry Tersak’s family and friends say that months before the Tersaks moved to Asheville from Benson, Terry’s grandmother died and left her $36,000. They say she paid $12,000 to purchase a 2002 Chevy Blazer. She left her car behind.

    Tersak was so estranged from her family that nearly two years passed before her father and brother filed a missing person’s report with the Asheville Police Department in late May 2011. There’s been no activity with her credit card, the Social Security Administration, bank accounts, her credit history and driver’s license since she disappeared.
