It was the Fourth of July 13 years ago, in 1999, when Brooke Henson disappeared from her family, and they don't want people to stop looking for her.
Travelers Rest police said they've been on this case from the beginning. They had many leads at first, but they never found her.
In 2007, Henson's case was back in the public eye. America's Most Wanted unveiled that another woman, Esther Reed, stole Henson's identity.
"The family's thinking, OK, we found her! She's alive!" said family friend Tammy Welch, of the that time, "but then once the picture of the girl was produced, it was not Brooke."
Family and friends are not giving up. Welch said they're now offering a reward. She said an anonymous donor, who grew up in Traveler's Rest, put up $5,000 and now family and friends are adding more. They hope to generate new leads that Travelers Rest police need to move this case forward.
