A new photo has been released of missing Martin County mother Tricia Todd.

It was taken at a Publix on Tuesday night April 26 and tweeted by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators say it is the last known photo of Todd before she disappeared.

Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said investigators have not found any signs of a crime in connection with the case. But he said Todd's phone and wallet are gone.

The sheriff's office has received tips from as far away as California and sightings but they have not led to any significant information.

"As of this moment we have forensically examined Tricia’s car, we have forensically examined her home, we have forensically examined her former husband’s car and there is not one scintilla of evidence of a crime,” Sheriff Snyder said.

Snyder also indicated that there was a previous report of a domestic violence incident between Tricia and her ex-husband, but said there were no arrests in that case. While her ex-husband was the last to report seeing her before she disappeared, investigators say he has cooperated fully with the investigation.

Snyder also indicated that Tricia might have been going through some emotional issues based on some of her social media activity.

Court records indicate Tricia's mother will be in court Tuesday morning to ask a judge for temporary custody of Tricia's daughter.

A prayer vigil was held for Todd on Sunday night in Hobe Sound.

Todd was reported missing Wednesday after she didn’t show up to pick up her child that morning.

Authorities and volunteers have been searching on the ground and in the air.
