Reward Now $17,000 In Case Of Missing Elderly Woman

A reward is now $17,000 for information in the disappearance of an 81-year-old Las Vegas woman who's been missing for more than six weeks.

Meadow Gold Dairy added $10,000 to the $5,000 posted by Parsons'
family and Heritage United Methodist Church, and $2,000 contributed by Crime Stoppers of Nevada.

Police say they found no signs of forced entry at Parsons' southeast Las Vegas home, and her van was left in the driveway when she disappeared Aug. 30.

Parson's identification was found about a week later at a casino not far from her house.

A man who used her ATM card at the casino was one of several people questioned.

He told police he found Parsons' purse in a trash bin.
