FENTON, MI (WNEM) -

UPDATE: Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Randa Jawhari.

Crime Stoppers held a media alert on July 9, 2015 at the Fenton Chamber of Commerce.

Randa Jawhari's mother, and five sisters attended the event along with Crime Stoppers and police officials.

TV5's previous coverage of Randa Jawhari is below.


Randa Jawhari's whereabouts is a mystery that haunts her family more and more each day, especially now that those days have turned to months and now years.

Randa Jawhari

Description: Randa Jawhari was 42 when she went missing. It is believed she was wearing nothing but a blue robe when she disappeared.

Last seen: At her apartment on Feb. 11, 2009.

If you have any information regarding this case call 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

"It's very hard for the mind and the heart to grasp. For one, I may never see my sister again. I really don't have, I don't know, the hope that I have is fading, but the hope I do have is the truth with Randa," said Naheda Jawhari, Randa Jawhari's sister.

It's been more than six years since the then 42-year-old Fenton woman vanished without a trace on Feb. 11, 2009. Police don't know if Randa walked away or if there was potentially foul play.

"Randa never went anywhere without telling us. She didn't do anything without telling us," Naheda Jawhari said.

In fact, Naheda Jawhari said her sister would talk to her and their parents several times a day. Randa Jawhari had bipolar disorder, she couldn't drive, and it's believed she vanished wearing nothing but a blue robe, while leaving everything else at her apartment. Naheda Jawhari said that has her fearing the worst.

"Was she in pain? Did she suffer? Those are the things that's really hard. That's what's very difficult," Naheda Jawhari said.

But she hopes one day, her family will finally get the closure they need. And that closure can only come when they find out what happened to Randa Jawhari.

"I know whatever the truth is still going to sting, but we'll deal with it when that happens, but it's necessary, it's necessary to know how to deal with it," Naheda Jawhari said.

The family hopes somebody will have the courage to speak up if they know something. If you have any tips that could help police solve this case, you're encouraged to call Fenton police or leave anonymous tips with Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-SPEAK UP.
