$10,000 Reward for Information About Missing Plano Woman

In a recent blog post, our firm detailed the case of the missing Plano woman that has not been seen since September 2. Nearly 40 days since the woman has gone missing, Crime Stoppers has increased the reward for information leading to an arrest for her disappearance. The reward has been doubled due to the efforts of anonymous donors.

Case of the Missing Plano Woman

The woman was last seen at the Shops at Legacy in Plano, after leaving the apartment of a friend just before 4 a.m. Surveillance footage showed the woman with a friend walking from the apartment to a nearby parking garage, but turning around before she reached her vehicle. She was reported missing four days later after she had failed to show up for work and had no contact with friends or family. Police discovered her car still in the parking garage with no evidence of foul play in the area.

Purpose of Rewards for Information in Criminal Cases

Law enforcement will often use rewards as incentive for those with information to reveal what they know. These tips can reveal the identity of the caller or remain anonymous, as long as the provided information leads to an increase in knowledge in connection with a crime. For the case of the missing Plano woman, nearly 200 have called in with tips but none have led to any new information in the case.

Oftentimes, however, the lure of money is not enough for someone with information regarding the crime to come forward and implicate a friend, family member, or themselves. In order to claim the reward, a person also must identify themselves to law enforcement, which may place them in an uncomfortable situation and not woth the financial benefit.

While there is no proof that a crime has been committed, law enforcement are treating the disappearance as a criminal matter. If you or someone you know has any information concerning the disappearance of the missing Plano woman, report the information to authorities. If revealing this information may expose you to trouble with the law, get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side immediately.
