Virginia State Police are working to keep the abduction case of Alicia Showalter Reynolds fresh in people's minds. VSP issued a statement on Tuesday that it is still actively pursuing the Reynolds' disappearance and murder.
On March 2, 1996, Reynolds was last seen alive on Route 29 in Culpeper County. She was on her way to Charlottesville, where she was a graduate student at the University of Virginia.

Showalter's remains were found two months later in a field in Lignum. As news spread about the abduction, several other women came forward and said they encountered the same man on Route 29 in Culpeper County.
