Akia's family deserves a lot of credit for this latest development. They've been pushing for answers and media attention. They know that if they don't keep Akia's story out there, chances are it will be forgotten. Hopefully, this reward will prompt someone to come forward with information that will help investigators find the now 23-year-old mom and bring her home to her family.
