SYKESVILLE, JEFFERSON COUNTY - Saturday marks seven years since Joey Lynn Offutt was last seen. Her family though, still has not given up hope of finding her.
On July 12, 2007 Offutt’s house in Sykesville caught fire; inside, her six-week-old son and no sign of Joey. Four days later, her car turned up outside her old apartment in State College.
State Police said the investigation into what happened to Offutt is still very an on-going one, and they've had leads recently, that unfortunately turned into nothing.
Joey's nephew Jason Hungerford said that it's nice to know that people are still thinking of Joey.
"We get emails all the time from people saying I just read her story or I just saw her story on the Disappeared show and I was very touched. And that's nice to hear that people are thinking about us and thinking about her."

Offutt’s family is still offering a $25,000 reward for any information that leads to some answers. You can click here for all the details.
