FBI raises reward in Nashville cold case to $50,000

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The FBI has doubled the reward for information leading an arrest in the disappearance of a Nashville girl 13 years ago.

Tabitha Tudors was 13 years old when she left home sometime after 7:30 a.m. on April 29, 2003, to catch a school bus at a nearby intersection. She did not board the bus and did not attend school.

Nashville Police announced Friday the FBI is now offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information on her disappearance.

Nashville Police and the FBI have jointly investigated hundreds of leads over the past 13 years.

Anyone with information about Tabitha's disappearance is asked contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463, the Homicide-Cold Case Unit at 615-862-7329, or the FBI at 1-800-225-5324.

Callers can remain anonymous and still qualify for a reward.
