ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Family members and volunteers helping in the search for a missing Belle Isle mother held a news conference Tuesday to ask companies and the public for help obtaining satellite imagery to help in their search.
Stephanie Hollingsworth, 50, a mother of three, was last seen on video at the Walmart on Goldenrod Road before she disappeared Sept. 25.
Retired Orlando police Detective Bill Moore, who is helping the family in their search, said Tuesday that he hopes big corporations or members of the public who have access to satellite imagery will help track Hollingsworth down.
“I reached out to NASA, I reached out to Amazon, Microsoft,” Moore said. “I’ve written them emails requesting their assistance in this matter and they have the coordinates they need to start.”
Police said they are still looking for a 2000 champagne-colored Chevy Tahoe with Florida tag number Y50XUR that Hollingsworth may have been driving at the time of her disappearance.
Moore said the vehicle’s custom rims and rain guards on the windows should help distinguish it from others. He said if anyone spots the SUV, they are asked not to approach it and to call police and report the sighting on findsteph.com.
“If something has happened to Stephanie, we don’t want any evidence to be destroyed that might be on the ground or on the vehicle,” Moore said.
Anyone who sees Hollingsworth is asked to notify Belle Isle police by calling the Orange County Sheriff’s Office at 407-836-4357 or 911.
There is a $10,000 reward for anyone who can help locate Hollingsworth.
