CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The FBI is marking the 15th anniversary of the disappearance of a North Carolina girl by offering a reward for information in her case.

A statement from the Charlotte office on Monday said a $25,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the disappearance of Asha Degree.

According to the FBI, its agents and employees, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office investigators, and State Bureau of Investigation agents are re-examining the case. Authorities are re-interviewing witnesses and following new leads.

Asha’s family last saw her asleep in her bedroom around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2000. She was seen walking along N.C. 18 in Cleveland County about 90 minutes later. Her book bag was found buried in Burke County more than a year later.
