JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of anyone responsible for the disappearance of a 29-year-old Joplin woman.
Sarah Burton, a mother of two young children, has been missing since she was last seen at a home in northwest Joplin on July 16, 2018.
Joplin police Capt. Larry Swinehart said the reward, announced Wednesday, might prompt some new leads in the case.
He said no major leads have come in to investigators recently.
The Joplin Globe reports police have been spreading the word that they are willing to pay for good information but the FBI reward is a significant increase from what police have been able to offer.
