GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Donovan Cowart was last seen in January.  He was first reported missing in March.  Now, almost a year since anybody has seen the Lucedale man, a $2,500 reward is being offered to help find him.

George County authorities held a news conference to update people on the Cowart case.  They have tips the 26-year-old father of two was in Mobile County last winter.  But, nobody knows where he is now.  Nobody is sure who he was with back then.  And nobody can say for certain Cowart is still alive.

His older sister is Wendy Keel.  She tells WLOX News all she wants is to find her brother.  She's offering the $2,500 reward because she wants to know where he is, or where his body is.

Christina Garcia attended the news conference in George County, and she talked exclusively with Cowart's older sister.  You'll hear her plea on WLOX News at 10:00.
