PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The investigation into a missing Perry County woman has led to a person of interest, and that man is now in custody. 

Sheriff Mitch Nobles said Hugo Hugger was taken into custody just before 1:30 p.m. in the Little Creek Community of Perry County. He said a tip was called in to his department and officers followed the lead.

He is being held currently on the parole violation and will be questioned as part of the investigation of Glin Street.

Previous information

Street, 46, was last seen at her residence on Forrest Lake Road, in Perry County, Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 around 7 a.m. She was reported missing Feb. 22 to Perry County authorities.

Hugger, 58, of Perry County was named as a person of interest in the case, according to Perry County Sheriff Mitch Nobles.

"Her boyfriend Hugo Hugger, was the last person to see her at the house on Forrest Lake Road and now we aren't able to locate him," said Nobles.

Hugger was out on parole from the Mississippi Department of Corrections after being convicted of a 1982 capital murder that occurred in the Little Creek community of Perry County. Hugger also had a warrant for a parole violation from MDOC.

"Hugger cooperated with us at the start, and he was the one that reported her missing with one of her (Streets) family members," said Nobles. "After a few days, Hugger stopped cooperating and now we can't locate him."

Nobles said his department and multiple surrounding county agencies have exhausted all resources in the search.

"We have had so much help, from four-wheeler searches, to men on foot, to multiple agencies and K9 searches, and we have had zero leads and nothing turn up," said Nobles. "We need to locate Hugger as part of the investigation."

Street is described as small build, roughly 5 feet, 120 pounds with long dreads.

"We just want to locate her, for the family and so we can close this case, we want to give them closure and be sure they have all their questions answered," said Nobles.

If anyone makes contact or knows her whereabouts please contact Perry County Sheriff's Office or Perry County Crimestoppers.
