ORLANDO, Fla. – The family of a missing Belle Isle woman made a plea Tuesday for space agencies to provide satellite imagery as the search continues for Stephanie Hollingsworth.
There’s a $10,000 reward for information leading to Hollingsworth, who was last seen Sept. 25 at a Walmart shopping center at 5991 S. Goldenrod Road in Orlando.
Hollingsworth’s husband, Scott, and other family members held a news conference, along with Bill Moore, a retired Orlando police detective, who shared details about emerging technologies they want to use to help find Stephanie Hollingsworth’s 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe.
Moore said they’re seeking help from NASA, SpaceX, L3Harris Technologies, Microsoft, Amazon and Geospatial Enthusiasts.
“We can get lucky to have a satellite passing overhead to capture her either walking to the car or the car leaving that parking space,” Moore said. “The family requests the assistance of any corporation or individual to search stored satellite imagery collected on September 25th for the purpose of locating Stephanie Hollingsworth’s light pewter metallic (champagne color) 2000 Chevrolet four-door Tahoe."

“It’s been a while since we’ve had any new information and that’s going to change," Scott Hollingsworth said. “I think we are going to find a lot of stuff. We have a lot of faith and hope.”
Scott Hollingsworth said no one wants answers about his wife’s disappearance more than him.
“There’s no answers and that’s the scariest thing about this," Hollingsworth said.
Hollingsworth, a wife and mother of three, was reported missing the same day she was captured on surveillance video in the store.
“It’s just amazing that we have no idea at this point what happened,” Scott Hollingsworth said earlier.
Anyone who has seen Stephanie Hollingsworth or knows her whereabouts is asked to call the Belle Isle Police Department or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
