BURTON (WJRT) (1/3/2019) - The reward for information leading to a woman missing for more than two years has been doubled.
Teresa Towne-Woolard, a mother of two, was last seen on Dec. 11, 2016. Crime Stoppers is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to her thanks to a special donation to the organization.
The reward had been $2,500 until an outside donor stepped forward recently with an additional $2,500.
Det. Don Schreiber of the Burton Police Department. said Woolard was last seen leaving her home at Kings Lane Apartments with an unknown person, heading toward Fenton and Hemphill roads.
He said initially there wasn't much to go on because Woolard lived a private life, but he's not giving up on the investigation. Several more tips have come in over the past two years and he immediately investigates them.
The lead detective on the case recently was able to get information from her cell phone that provides a few more clues, but no definitive idea of where Woolard is.
Her phone last pinged in the area of Kearsley High School around Carpenter and Coldwater roads. It also pinged in Frankenmuth, Lapeer and Davison in the weeks and months after she disappeared.
Anyone with information about where Woolard may be is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL. Callers can remain anonymous.
