    Two weeks ago, a Lubbock teen disappeared from her home. Now the FBI and Texas Rangers have joined the search for Joanna Rogers.

    Tuesday morning an FBI agent interviewed Joanna's mother for about an hour and a half. Also new, the Carole Sund Foundation offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the safe return of Joanna

    sure is strange that this young lady went missing during the night. I feel like she had planned on going out of the house when the parents went on to sleep. hopefully she will show up ok, I think she is a runaway. remember christa rolinger that run away and was missing for about 2 months or so. lets all keep our prayers strong for this family and for the safe return of the child.

    I don't see her as being a runaway because she did not take her debit card, shoes, clothes, or cell phone. I think it is disgusting that the police waited for 2 days to declare Joanne a missing person. She is only a junior in high school and was supposedly a very good and reliable girl. The ten mile area search was only done this past weekend and foul play is suspected. I have no idea if they still believe that she left the home of her own free will or not, and hopefully the local yokals will let people know if there is some nut running around abducting girls.

    After two days with hundreds of volunteers, the search for missing Lubbock teen Joanna Rogers continues. Few clues were found, but authorities say much ground was covered, and leads keep coming in everyday.

    16 year-old Joanna Rogers has been missing for almost three weeks. But this weekend, hundreds gathered to assist in her search.

    Her name is Shadow. A Siberian Husky trained to search out the missing - alive or dead. "What we're doing is eliminating places," said Captain Bill Drewell of the Lubbock Sheriff's Department.

    On Wednesday, Shadow was helping the sheriff's department search through cars at a towing yard. "What we're doing is going to some of the areas that we didn't get to search over the weekend," said Drewell.

    Missing Endangered Child: Joanna Kathryn Rogers

    Dear friends and family,
    Kelly and I are networking the case of a missing child from Lubbock, Texas. Joanna Kathryn Rogers was last seen at her parents house on May the 4th. She has no history of running away and a national alert was sounded as soon as it was discovered she was missing. Police DO believe foul play is involved in her disappearance.

    We need your help.
    Please visit Joanna's website at www.bringjohome.info and take a good look at her. Do you think you recognize Joanna? If so please contact the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office at 1-806-775-1601 or 1-806-775-1604
    Additional photos of Joanna may be found here, http://members.cox.net/bringjohome/photo.html

    Please download her flyer and place in local businesses and anywhere you deem appropriate. Your flyer might be the one someone recognizes and can bring her home again.

    I live in the area and all news accounts that I have seen say that Joanna was placed on the national missing persons list two days after her mother discovered her gone. The Texas Rangers and FBI are on the case, and I know they are very good at what they do. I've seen some other locals, one who knows her, posting on the internet that Joanna is an honors student and has very good grades. The high school she attends is an honors school offering advanced placement, and her father is a private investigator. I wonder if Joanna could have sneaked outside to smoke a cigarette and some nut abducted her. Last year we had a prowler around our home. My daughter who was 18 would go outside very late to smoke a cigarette, and I thought there might be some connection. Thank God for a neighbors dog barking or my daughter could have been hurt or abducted. My daughter would never go anywhere, not even in the yard, without a phone with her though, and that puzzles me about this case.

    txvicki, Please keep us posted on news involving Joanna. It's possible she ran away, but that shouldn't be assumed because she might have been abducted. It's better to error on the side of caution when no history of running away exist.

    I'm not hearing any news about Joanna. There's hardly anything being said except that they have no leads. Surely there's more though, but I've not heard a thing about whether there was anything on the computers or phone records, and if her bed had been slept in or if any clothes or pajamas were missing that she could have had on.

    I have been following Joanna's case but there is no news on it in the national media compared to Brooke Wilberger. I really hope they find her alive. So many missing young women. It's so sad and scary.

    June 4th Lubbock Avalanche Journal reports that authorities are still waiting for phone and communications records to assist in their search. I'm not sure what communications records are, if it's computer or what. Joanna's mother also states that she has no complaints with the way the case is being handled. Still no leads are being reported.

    Joanna Rogers flyers have been posted to several websites and organizations. The family has several friends working to make sure she is posted everywhere. There are a couple of websites just for Joanna. The Lubbock County Sheriff Department is working hard on the case,and has had several tips but none of them have panned out to be good Leads. They can't release any information as they find it, until the case is solved and Joanna is found.

    We will continue to search for Joanna until she is found, and try to keep this story alive. She is on the Projectjason website

    http://www.projectjason.org/faces.html

    and the organization is taking with them her information/flyer on their missing person tour, which will cross several states. We hope and pray she will come home or someone will call and let us know where she can be found.

    Please continue to keep this family in your prayers, each day that goes by is harder and harder for them.

    I'm very curious to know if the FBI and Texas Rangers are still involved. I read an update yesterday that said the "trail began and ended at Joanna's home", meaning that there are no leads. Even if no one had said that a stranger could have abducted her, there seems to be so many young women of student age that just disappear lately.

    I do know the FBI is still working the case. Yes it is very sad that so many young woman are missing. If anyone runs across a website that does not have Joanna's flyer posted, please let me know.

    Thanks

    Update on www.bringjohome.info still no leads. Polygraphs of family, co workers, boyfriend done. Phone and computer records show no evidence. Joanne's bank account remains untouched.

    Joanna's family has asked area farmers and others to check their land, old wells, buildings, abandoned cars, etc for any signs of a body. The family says that they want to find Joanna and bring her home. I'm updating because I live in the area and I am checking daily for updates.

    txsvicki,

    How extensive a search was done for Joanna? I haven't seen a lot of information about searches.

    The authorities did the initial search and a few weeks after the disappearance , the public responded and I believe a search was done in a 10 mile radius around her home area. We haven't been given just a whole lot of information about the investigation, but the Sheriff's department has stated that there are no leads. Joanna's dad is a private investigator, and the family is reported to be attending a conference for investigators to try and find more help or advice about what more they can do.
