Twenty-year-old Julie Popovich disappeared August 11th from Ledo’s Bar on North High Street, as reported by channel 10 WBNS in Ohio.
Columbus Police are convinced that whatever happened to a missing woman, she did not go willingly.
Twenty-year-old Julie Popovich disappeared August 11th from Ledo’s Bar on North High Street. Her friends said that she left the bar around 1 a.m. Thursday with a man they did not recognize.
Police have ruled out the possibility that Popovich simply took off on her own and want to talk with anyone who saw her that night.
Julie Popovich is 5’10″ or 5’11″ — I’ve seen both heights in various descriptions, a slender 104 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 614-645-TIPS.
Update: From The Advocate, the reward for information leading to her whereabouts has been increased to $50,000.
Authorities have increased the reward for information that may help find a missing Reynoldsburg woman.
“When we started out, we were considering this a voluntary missing,” said Sgt. Greg Estep, of Columbus police missing persons unit. “Based on some leads we’ve developed, we’re now moving that up … foul play is a possibility now.”
“We have a person of interest that we’re looking at,” Estep said.
Central Ohio Crime Stoppers said that thanks to an anonymous out-of-town donor, the reward for information leading to her whereabouts has been increased to $50,000.
The donor also gave money to increase the reward for information about the Natalee Holloway case.
