Nearly $4,000 has been donated to the Jacque Sue Waller reward fund set up mid-June as incentive for someone with information on the woman's June 1 disappearance to come forward.

Waller's parents, Stan and Ruby Rawson, confirmed the reward Wednesday after the information was posted Tuesday on the "Find Jacque S Waller" Facebook page. The family said they'll give the money to anyone with information that leads them directly to their daughter.

Jacque Waller was last seen in Jackson by her estranged husband Clay Waller at his temporary residence on Woodland Drive. Her vehicle, a blue Honda Pilot, was found on Interstate 55 near the Fruitland exit. The Cape Girardeau/Bollinger County Major Case Squad has said it suspects foul play in her disappearance.

Clay Waller was named a person of interest, although not a suspect, in his wife's disappearance, because he was the last person to see her.

Waller's sister, Cheryl Brenneke, said the family is frustrated the person responsible for her disappearance is still "just walking around."

"We just want to find her. We're just sick of it," she said. "We just want to put an end to it."

The Jackson Police Department is investigating leads, although chief James Humphreys had no new information in the case Wednesday. The department has been waiting for weeks for results of evidence that was sent to a state crime lab.

Due to ground searches led by members of the community, many of them Waller's friends, additional leads have been generated. None has led authorities to Waller or substantial evidence to determine what happened to the mother of triplets. There is no evidence a crime was committed, according to police.

Police are still trying to determine Waller's whereabouts following her visit to Clay Waller's home. Waller, in his only interview with the major case squad, told police she left his home on foot angry, due to disagreement about a pending divorce. He left but returned a few hours later to find her vehicle gone. He's since stopped cooperating with police, according to detectives.

Police encourage residents with information to contact the Jackson Police Department at 243-3151.
