GAINESVILLE, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Authorities in Alachua County are still searching a pregnant woman who went missing in February.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office said that they are offering a reward of $8,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of anyone responsible for the disappearance of 23-year-old Jasmine Robinson.
Jasmine was about six to seven months pregnant when she was last seen by family members on February 18th, 2019. She is still considered missing and endangered. The search for her remains active. She is also expected to give birth soon.
“Detectives have and continue to gather significant technical and forensic evidence,” said Lieutenant Brett Rhodenizer, Public Information Officer for the Sheriff’s Office. “We also know that there is key information that only certain people can provide, and this unique reward opportunity just may encourage them to do the right thing for Jasmine and her child. We know she left her home in Archer with someone, and there is someone who knows who that is.”

This is the first time that the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with the Florida Sheriff’s Association Criminal Apprehension Assistance Program and CrimeStoppers, has been able to offer a reward in a local missing person's case. Reward funding is authorized for payment when the information provided to law enforcement leads to an arrest. Criminal activity also must have kept Jasmine from returning home for the reward money to be available.
