Higher reward being offered for information in Zoe Campos disappearance

LUBBOCK, Texas -

More than three years ago, investigators say then 18-year-old Zoe Campos completely disappeared. 

The last time anyone heard from her was in a text message at 2 am in November 2013.

Crown Point Health Suites donated $1,000 to CrimeLine to look into Zoe Campos' case.

The reward for information related to Zoe's case has reached new totals of $11,000.

Lubbock Police Detective Adam Freeman said, "Everybody's got a price tag. There is a certain dollar amount that everybody will do anything for and hopefully this will help towards that, not really sure if it's going to, but at least it's a step in the right direction to help out,"

"I receive tips daily, but many are not valid," Freeman said.

Zoe's mother Melinda Campos said, "I'm just hoping someone will finally come up and talk and say something. I've always said we are not looking for you we are looking for her and I don't care what your background is, I don't care, just give me some answers, just help me find her."

The mystery surrounding Zoe's disappearance eludes investigators and torments her family. 

"This one is unique simply in the fact that there is no evidence that can positively say Zoe is deceased and there is no evidence to positively say she was kidnapped, but on the same token there is nothing to say positively she is alive," Freeman said. "It's one of those, she literally vanished into thin air."

Freeman took the case a year and a half ago.

"Zoe's case is really important because this is not one of those where I believe she voluntarily disappeared," Freeman said. "I believe she was put in danger, she was  murdered, she was taken against her will. I don't think this was just up and walk away and leave everything. We've got to keep her face out there just to show that we are still working on it."

Freeman hasn't stopped looking for Zoe. 

"We were looking a Zoe's picture and my mom had made a comment and she had said this is her baby and Detective Freeman also said this is my baby now," Campos said. "He's really working at finding answers for me and that's what I need, that's what we need."
"Somebody eventually is going to come forward and say something, because somebody knows," Freeman said. "There is always somebody that knows something."

If you have any information on the case you are asked to call CrimeLine at 741-1000.
