On Tuesday, Chitwood said they are in need of more volunteers for their search and those who can volunteer drones to search from above.

“The key is to get people out here to be extra eyes out there in the community because they feel she’s still some place not too far,” Chitwood said.

Hunter Kinnett and Jackson Maddox got to the family’s command center outside the Walmart parking lot on Tuesday morning. They have been looking for Hollingsworth for three days now.

“We’ve been from anywhere to Lake Nona to downtown and we’ve just been trying to cover ground at this point,” Maddox said.

The Belle Isle Police Department is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to answers in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
