A STARTLING discovery has emerged after a mother of two went missing seven months ago, family members say.
Relatives of Cristi Ruso, 31, said bags containing her clothes were found by the side of the road a few months after her disappearance, according to CBS6.
Ruso, a mother of two from Texas, was last seen in Buna on October 21, 2021 at 4pm.
Her clothes were found in mid-December about four miles south of the city where she was last seen.
So far this is the only lead and nothing has been sighted since her disappearance.
“You don’t give up hope,” Debbie Wilson, Ruso’s aunt, told 12 News last month.
Ruso’s family and friends, with the help of the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office, have organized many searches.
“I am waiting for a call. She called me every week and that hadn’t happened in six months.”
First, a $500 reward was offered for any tips that would lead to Ruso’s discovery.
Now, with help from community donations, the reward is $11,000.
“I’m just blown away by how this community has come together,” said another aunt, Debora Williams.
“And the money raised as a reward leads to you knowing, finding Cristi, appreciating all people and hopefully getting answers from our law enforcement soon.”
Jasper County Assemblyman Scotty Duncan is still encouraging anyone with information to come forward after seven months.
“We’re following every lead,” Duncan told 12 News.
“Any kind of credible information anyone might have, contact the sheriff. We turn every stone and do everything we can.”
Ruso is described as a white female who is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds.
She has brown hair, brown eyes and a light complexion.
Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is asked to contact the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office at 409-384-5417.
