WILSON — The family of Molly Miller has opened the Operation Find Molly account at American National Bank in Wilson in an attempt to gather donations to increase a reward for information leading to finding the missing teenager.
Miller has been missing since July 8 and was last seen in the company of Colt Haynes. Paula Fielder, who is a cousin of Miller's parents Melissa and Kevin Anderson, says donations will be used for the reward. The reward was initially $1,500, and was increased to $10,000 following a meeting with law enforcement agencies tasked with locating Miller.
"We went over the status of the case and where we are now," said OSBI agent David Seals. "We tried to address concerns from the family and took leads to follow up on."
The meeting took place Tuesday at the Carter County Sheriff's Department.
"We had representatives from the different agencies involved in the search," said Deputy Danny King. "We briefed the family and discussed the direction of the investigation."
Fielder says the family is also raising money through fundraisers. Those interested in making a donation should call ANB at (580) 668-2341.
