MONTGOMERY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police officials say DNA evidence found in a teenager’s car could shed new light on her disappearance.

Brianna Maitland disappeared in 2004 after leaving her job at the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery. The 17-year-old girl’s car was found the next day at a nearby abandoned farmhouse.

Police have said there’s no evidence that Maitland left the area willingly and they believe she was a victim of foul play.

Maj. Glenn Hall tells WCAX-TV (https://bit.ly/1pymCcn ) DNA could connect a suspect or person who was with Maitland that night.

Loose change, a water bottle and an unsmoked cigarette were found around her car. Two uncashed paychecks were inside.

Reward money totaling $20,000 runs out this year and is set to be donated to charities for missing kids next year.
