Friends and family of Lael Grant have increased the amount of a reward being offered in connection with her search. They’re now offering $5,000 for anyone who can lead them to her location.

See the Facebook site created to help find Grant.

The 33-year-old mother of two went missing from Sitka about two weeks ago. Her family last reported seeing her on Oct. 14. Authorities say she was spotted at the SeaMart grocery store a day or two later. Her car was found on the Nelson Logging Road on Oct. 20.

Authorities have suspended a widespread ground search. But Sitka police Lt. Barry Allen says the investigation is still going strong. Police are following up on leads and teams are conducting smaller, more focused searches as necessary.

Anyone with information is urged to call Sitka police at (907) 747-3245.
