Two months have passed since Janet Hamner seemingly disappeared without a trace, and it’s taking a toll on her family members.

Hamner, 59, was last seen around the morning of Aug. 11 at Moe’s Travel Plaza on U.S. Highway 82 West at the Pickens County line. Family, volunteers and law enforcement have conducted extensive searches in the area and still have no idea where she could be.

Genia Deason said thoughts of her aunt are always at the forefront of her mind.

“Everywhere we go, we’re looking to see if maybe we see her,” she said. “You check everyone out. And two months later, we still have no answers. No Aunt Janet. Still, nothing.”

The family has offered a $6,000 reward for information.

Deason said they have received several tips from people that led to dead ends. She’s grateful people cared enough to contact her.

“I still want to encourage anyone who knows anything to come forward,” she said. “To them, it may seem small, but to us it could be huge. It could be exactly what we need to get her back home.”

Member of the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office’s civilian posse has searched the area surrounding the truck stop on foot, while law enforcement agents have searched a wider area. Family members have gone to areas where Deason has lived and is familiar with.

Deason’s mother died when she and her sister were young. She said Hamner stepped in and helped them with their beauty walks, hair, makeup and school shopping.

“She was the fun aunt,” she said.

Hamner was living with her mother, who is almost 80. Deason said her grandmother recently made the comment that the days without her daughter seem to be getting longer.

“People don’t just disappear,” Deason said. “Someone knows something. We just need that person to come forward.”
