FBI investigators make plea for information in Rachel Cooke case
"I think it's somewhat ironic that yesterday was the 17th anniversary of the missing of Rachel Cooke up in Williamson County. We continue to look for Rachel. We work as hard we did here with San Antonio Police as we do with the Williamson County Sheriff's Office to try to find Rachel who's been gone so long," said FBI Agent Chris Combs.
On January 10, 2002, Cooke went on a jog, never to be seen again. She was visiting her parents Georgetown home on a college break at the time.
Since then, police have made some developments in the case. In April of last year, deputies followed a tip that led to an old white Trans Am. It matches the description of a strange car seen in the Georgetown neighborhood the same morning Rachel went missing. In September, FBI investigators found possible evidence of blood in that car.
And just last month, the sheriff's office followed a tip leading them to a field along SH 130 and Hwy 971. Officials declined to say whether anything of interest was found.
