The Maury County Sheriff’s Department launched its first-ever cold case unit in late 2023, dedicated to bringing justice to victims of unsolved investigations.

The newly formed unit brings a wealth of knowledge and was strategically made up of retired law enforcement, former forensic examiners, and criminal justice majors.

The missing person case of Amber Cates, who was 16 years old at the time of her disappearance, is just one of the cases the unit will work.

Lt. Roscoe Voss is the lead investigator on Amber’s case. He said his team has several cold cases they work on from time to time, but Amber’s is their main focus at this time.

The cold case unit has made a lot of progress since its inception at the end of 2023.

Anyone with information on the Cates case or any case is asked to contact Lt. Voss at 931-375-6601 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
