The family of a missing 19-year-old East Baltimore woman is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts.
In the meantime, they resumed their search.
Yesterday, 15 to 20 family members and friends of Melissa Watkins searched the woods and neighborhoods near where police on Wednesday found the car she was using when she disappeared Monday. Watkins, of the 5000 block of Denview Ave., failed to return home after buying a full-length leather coat at a store in Mondawmin Mall in northwest Baltimore.
The beige 1982 Ford Escort that belonged to Watkins' mother, was found between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday near Frankford Avenue and Force Road, police said. Police examined it for fingerprints and other clues.
