CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A renewed effort is underway to catch the killer of a 10-year-old girl who has been missing for more than two decades.

Starting Monday, people throughout Northeast Ohio will be reminded of Amy Mihaljevic's name and face as local FBI continue to hunt down her killer.

The FBI has placed billboards along major arteries in Cleveland, Akron and in areas near Columbus, seeking tips and information to help solve the murder case of the young girl from Bay Village.

It was in October 1989 that Mihaljevic was kidnapped from the Bay Square Shopping Center in Bay Village after being lured there by an unknown man. Four months later, her body was found in Ashland County.

Investigators have interviewed several people of interest and covered thousands of leads over the years, but there has still been no arrest.

In addition to the billboards, the FBI has also sent the details of the case both nationally and internationally through a national criminal information system.

A $25,000 reward is now being offered to anyone with information that will lead to an arrest and conviction in the cold case murder mystery.

The FBI also said the placement of the billboards could also expand to even more municipalities until the case is solved.
