BATH COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — It's been five years since Norma Jo Brown was reported missing from Bath County.

Now her family thinks about the things she's missed, like birthdays and holidays.

"My youngest wasn't even a full year old when she went missing," said Brown's cousin, Miranda Alsapt, "and my oldest, he can't remember her."

Plus there are daily reminders of her, said cousin Tina Johnson.

"It hits me at the randomist times," she said. "Songs come on the radio all the time. It's just different, random times that she'll pop in my mind."

The cousins said they haven't heard an update in Brown's case for years, but they haven't given up searching for answers.

"We all know she's probably gone for good," Alsapt said. "She deserves to come home, even if it is in a box, just so we can have closure and lay her to

Alsapt said she heard that Brown was last seen in Salt Lick with a man who's now serving a prison sentence for second degree manslaughter and tampering with physical evidence in a separate case. She hopes someone will come forward with information about Brown.

"For anybody worried about being a snitch out there, you're hurting our entire family and she deserves to be home," she said. "So please just give us what you know."

The family has started a gofundme to collect money for a reward for information in the case, click here to donate.
