LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The investigation for a Pine Belt teenager is still active 20 years after her disappearance.

Angela Freeman went missing on September 10, 1993. She was last seen at the Pizza Hut in Petal, and her car was later found near the Mahned Bridge in Perry County.

"It's been a long journey," says Angela's mother Deborah Freeman. "We still miss her. Like yesterday, you know, but it's been 20 years."

One of the investigating officers in this cold case is Captain Rusty Keyes with the University of Southern Mississippi Police Department.

"This is a very active case," says Keyes. "We know what Angela's activities were that night, and we're pretty confident on where we are in the case as far as the suspect as well."

Even with the developments of the case, Angela's family says that 20 years is too long to not know more.

"I wish that if anybody knows anything that they would come forth, and let's get this solved," says Deborah Freeman. "Any little detail that they might think of, it may help us."

The family says there is a $12,000 reward set for anyone who can help in solving this case.
