SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City police are breathing new life into the cold case of a pregnant woman who vanished in 2002.

Investigators said Wednesday they’ve reopened the case of Aletha Jo Williams based on new information. They’re asking friends and acquaintances for more tips, and are offering a cash award that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Williams was 25 years old and six months pregnant when family members reported her missing in May 2002.

Police say she was last seen March 6, 2002, when she dropped off her belongings at a relative’s house and promised to return.

Williams is described as a black woman about 5 feet 3 inches tall and 140 pounds, with the name “Shawn” tattooed on her wrist.
