MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – It’s been six months since an elderly woman from Raleigh disappeared. Now, the family of Pandora Duckett has increased the reward for information from $10,000 dollars to $15,000.
85-year-old Pandora Duckett went missing from her home on Rosswood early the morning of January 28, 2019.
Pandora’s son is still holding out hope she’s alive.
“It’s almost as if she disappeared out of thin air and you know that’s not the case,” said Kim Duckett.
Law enforcement, family, and friends continue to wonder what happened to the 85-year-old. It’s still a mystery six months after she vanished near her home in north Raleigh.
“Hopefully, uh, this will spark more interest in the case.”
Pandora’s son, Kim Duckett, says with the help of family and friends, the reward money being offered to help get answers has been increased from $10,000 to $15,000.
He’s hoping that much money will jog someone’s memory.
“Hopefully this $15,000 will have someone going back in their minds and come up with a small detail,” said Kim Duckett.
There have been possible sightings of the 85-year-old Duckett. A woman claimed to have picked her up the morning she disappeared. She said she dropped Pandora off at a convenience store. Duckett told the woman she lived nearby, but turns out, it was the wrong house.
“You don’t want to look at it as closure. You want results and sometimes you’re afraid of the result you might get,” said Kim Duckett.
He describes his mother as a loving and caring person who would never intentionally leave her family. He prays for answers and says he will never give up looking for his mom until she’s found.
“The not knowing is definitely the hardest part of all this.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police immediately.
