The family of Shawnta Larae Pankey, a 25-year-old from Grangeville, Idaho, who went missing in April, is offering a $3,500 for information leading to her recovery, alive or dead, according to a press release from the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office.

If foul play was involved in her disappearance, the family is offering another $3,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, according to the press release.

The family requests all tips be sent to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office, not to the Pankey family. The sheriff’s office can be reached at 208-983-1100, or by email to Detective Jerry Johnson at Private messages are also welcome to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Pankey was reportedly last seen on foot near Pine Bar along the Salmon River around 10 a.m. April 15.

The sheriff’s office announced at the time that it was seeking information about a man and a dog in a green pickup with Utah plates and a camper that was at Pine Bar the weekend of April 14 and 15.

Pankey is a white female, 5-foot-4, 135 pounds, with long red curly hair and brown eyes, according to the sheriff’s office. She was last seen wearing a blue and green tank top, blue jeans, pink cowboy boots and possibly carrying a brown leather purse.

Pankey has no cell phone or vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.
