Vigil Held For Missing Columbia Teen

COLUMBIA, Tenn – The family of a Maury County teen who went missing 9 years ago held a vigil in honor of her this weekend.

16-year-old Amber Cates went missing in Columbia back in 2004.

Since then, her half-sister Brenda James has been doing everything she can to keep Amber's name out in the public, even paying to put her face on billboards and tractor trailers across the south.

Because of that, tips have continually come in, but so far they've led nowhere.

Brenda said despite not knowing whether Amber is alive or dead, she hopes the vigil will help get the word out about her disappearance and eventually lead to an answer about her whereabouts.

"I hope someone sees her and calls, and that whoever knows something comes out and speaks up," said James.

There is a $25,000 reward for information about what happened to Amber.

If you have a tip you can call Crime Stoppers at 931-381-4900.
