Three months before Jennifer Wilkerson disappeared, NewsChannel 11 interviewed her for a story we were working on about cigarettes and taxes. She was employed at Nothin Butt Smokes at that time.
Three months later, on July 13, 2004, Wilkerson was reported missing and authorities investigated it as an abduction.
Nine days later, the Lubbock Sheriffs Department asked the community for help with a two day massive ground search. Close to 200 volunteers helped, but nothing was found.
Also, flyers of the missing woman were posted all over the community. Then in December, sheriff's investigators got a tip and searched a piece of private property in Northwest Lubbock. Again, no evidence was found.
We also know the search took authorities to Hobbs, New Mexico, her hometown, but could not find anything. For weeks, NewsChannel 11 have been expecting the Sheriff's office to search a location for Wilkerson's body.
