The family of Shawnta L. Pankey is offering a reward for information leading to her recovery, according to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office.

The family, who offered $3,500 for information “leading to the recovery of Shawnta, alive or deceased,” asked that all tips and information be given to the sheriff’s office rather than the family itself.

“Additionally, if foul play was involved, an additional reward of $3,500 is offered by the family for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible,” the press release stated.

Pankey was last seen at about 10 a.m. April 15 when she and her boyfriend were camped at Pine Bar along the Salmon River south of Cottonwood, according to the Lewiston Tribune. The boyfriend said the couple had an argument and Pankey left the area on foot. 

She was reported missing the next day by her mother after she failed to pick up her child, the newspaper reported.

Tips and information can be given to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office at 208-983-1100, to Detective Jerry Johnson at jjohnson@idahocounty.org or you can send a private message to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Facebook page.
