PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - The investigation into the disappearance of a Pine Bluff honor student is getting new life as investigators reopen the case.
THV's Stefanie Bryant talked with Ashley Blackstone today who has been following the case of Cleashindra Hall and talks about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.
Cleashindra Hall, was last seen at the home and office of Dr. Larry Amos at 5309 Faucett Rd. in Pine Bluff on May 9, 1994. Clea, as her family called her, worked as a part time clerk for Amos. She was 18 at the time of her disappearance.
Some thought Clea may have tried to walk home and was abducted. She only lived a half mile away from her job.
Investigators are searching Amos' home and property for new clues into the teen's disappearance. Lt. Bob Rawlinson with Pine Bluff police says Amos has been renovating his home for 20 years. Also he says he owns three homes on Faucett Rd.
In 2009, THV's Ashley Blackstone spoke with Clea's mother, Laurell Hall, for one of our Cold Case segments. During that interview, Laurell said, "You know when I look at her picture, I see her as the little girl up there. I don't see her as being an adult, 33-years-old. I don't see that."
We also spoke with Lt. Rowland Dorman who worked on the case at the time. There was a person of interest, but police never identified them. However, police said in 2009 that Amos was not a person of interest. One area of his home was initially searched when Clea first disappeared.
Laurell Hall spoke today in light of the new leads in her daughter's case.
