Reward Increases for Information on Missing Sykesville Woman

Nearly a year after Joey Lynn Offutt disappeared, her family is hoping more reward money will lead to more information on her whereabouts.

Offut has been missing since July 12 of last year, the day the remains of an infant were found in her burned-out Sykesville home. The remains of the infant hadn't been positively identified until recently. Offutt's nephew, Jason Hungerford, says police told the family within the last couple months that the body is Offutt's 6-week-old son. A cause of death has not been determined.

The family plans to increase the reward money for information leading to Offut's whereabouts from $10,000 to $15,000.
