More On The Alabama Woman’s Disappearance, According TO CNN
The latest update on Russell’s disappearance comes only days after she contacted the police last Thursday night and reported spotting a toddler walking alone on the side of I-459 South around mile marker 11, according to a press release from the police. Police claimed at the time that she stopped to check on the toddler and contacted a family member before officials arrived, but the member lost contact with the Alabama woman.
A recent update stated that a “single witness” said that they had “possibly” seen a male of light complexion standing outside the Alabama woman’s car. Her car was eventually found by the authorities prior to the witness’ report but found no sign of her or the toddler she was reporting.
At the time, authorities disclosed a $20,000 prize from a donor who preferred to remain anonymous. A $5,000 reward was given by Crime Stoppers to anyone who could provide any relevant information regarding the disappearance of the Alabama woman.
