Family offering $20K reward in disappearance of Wisconsin mother
(FOX 9) - The family of a Wisconsin mother who has been missing since for more than a month is offering a $20,000 reward for information that helps bring her home.
The reward was originally $10,000, but has since been doubled after a close family friend contributed another $10,000, the family said.
The family of 33-year-old Ashley Miller Carlson has also hired a private investigator to look into the case. The mother from western Wisconsin was last seen on September 24 east of Hinckley, Minnesota. Since then police, family, friends, and members of the community have searched for Carlson but with no results.
