ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Hoping to stir up new interest—and new clues—the FBI today announced a $20,000 reward for information concerning Amanda Jones.
Hannah Jones was just 4 years old when her mother vanished in 2005.
“All I want is for my mom to come home,” she told the crowds.
Bertha Probst, Hannah’s grandmother and the missing woman’s mother, pleaded for somebody to step forward.
“I know there’s someone out there that knows something that can at least give this child some closure,” she said.
Amanda Jones was nine months pregnant when she disappeared in Hillsboro nine years ago next week.
Lieutenant Doc Coombs says they haven’t given up solving the case.
“We’ve been investigating all leads, and it’s just kind of like we’re chipping away,” he said.
WATCH Amanda’s daughter, Hannah, and Amanda’s parents make an emotional plea at the press conference:
