Missing Mother’s Family Increases Reward

Seven months after vanishing, the family of missing mother Anya Wilmott, still desperate for answers and hoping to figure out what happened to the single mother, is now doubling the amount of the reward money being offered to anyone with information.

Antoinette Newton, the mother of the missing woman, told the Bahama Journal recently that the family has increased the reward money from $2,000 to $4,000.

Mrs. Newton admitted that with seven months now gone by since the family last saw Wilmott, their hope that she is alive has begun to fade; however, she still wants to know what happened to her daughter and she wants to see whoever is responsible punished.

“We are dealing with this in the only way we know how to,” Mrs. Newton said. “We [the family] just want to know what happened to Anya and where exactly is she.”

Wilmott, 23, was last seen on November 22, 2011 at the Lil Feet Academy in Pinewood Gardens – the preschool that Wilmott’s two daughters attend.

She was expected to meet her mother that morning in downtown but she never showed up and neither did she call to explain what happened.

Since her disappearance last November, several reports have surfaced alleging that Wilmott’s disappearance was as a result of her alleged involvement in criminal activity; her family vehemently denies these claims.

Wilmott’s family is also disappointed in the police for what they feel is a lack of cooperation.

Mrs. Newton said that she has received very little information from police and she suggested that the formal investigation into Wilmott’s disappearance may have already ended.

“That is why we, as Anya’s family continue to do our own searching,” she said. “We still drive around and hand out fliers and ask people to keep an eye out for her.

“We just would like to have some closure and anyone who is able to help us get that, we are very grateful for.”

Wilmott is described as being of slim build, approximately five feet, eight inches tall; she is brown complexion and black shoulder length hair.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact police at 911, 919; Central Detective Unit at 502-9910 or 502-9991.
