Officials: ‘Still a Chance for Closure’ on Dail Dinwiddie Disappearance
Almost 20 years after the disappearance of Dail Dinwiddie, officials and family are hoping an age-progression photo will spark new clues.
An age-progression photo developed by Photoshop experts shows what Dail Dinwiddie would look like at 43, 20 years after she went missing in Five Points.
Dinwiddie was last seen at Jungle Jim's after a U2 concert in 1992, Columbia police said in a press conference.
The age-progressed image compares photos from Dinwiddie's family to compile common aging trends that she might have followed. The photo will be disseminated over social media and through local news outlets.
Since the night of her disappearance, nobody has had any contact with Dinwiddie. While the investigation has turned up thousands of unsuccessful tips, her family and investigators remain optimistic that she could return home safe.
"I'm not willing to say Dail is deceased until you give me proof," said Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott also announced that the sheriff's office is offering a $20,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the return of Dail Dinwiddie.
