The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for solid information that can help solve the case of Tabitha Tuders. Crime Stoppers is offering an additional $1,000 reward.
Tabitha vanished while walking to her school bus stop in 2003.
On Friday, eight teams of FBI agents, Metro police and agents with the Center for Missing and Exploited Children were busy going door-to-door asking neighbors questions in hopes of generating new leads in the case. The investigators said they decided to take this action after a recommendation from the CMEC.
"(Our purpose today is) to re-canvass and recreate the neighborhood near the time of her disappearance. It's our hope and goal that maybe somebody still in the neighborhood will remember something that they haven't passed onto us before," said Metro police Capt. Marlene Pardue.
Some of the questions that investigators are asking people in the neighborhood include: "Did anyone move out of the neighborhood at the time of Tabitha's disappearance?" "Has anyone in the area tried to commit suicide?"
A candlelight vigil was held Thursday night for Tabitha at Bailey Middle School, where she attended classes.
