JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Nearly five months and still no sign of them.

Larry and Sandara Blanton disappeared last September, and police say they still have no any idea what happened to them.

Family members of the missing couple tell Mountain news they are offering a reward and praying for any information.

Signs are posted throughout Johnson County pleading for information about the disappearance of Larry and Sandara Blanton.

"Sometimes we get lucky. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer, but the sheriff's office is still working on it," said Johnson County Deputy David Pridemore.

But there have still been no answers and no signs of them anywhere.

Family members say as more time goes by more questions go unanswered.

"What could have happened to them? What their last thoughts were. Was there anything that we could have done, anything to prevent this? Should we have seen it coming?" said Sandara's sister Lois Fraley.

They say they will do whatever it takes, including offer a $10,000 reward to help find their loved ones.

"Sometimes the investigation may take a year, but we will pursue it until we come up with something," said Deputy Pridemore.

Investigators say even though there has not been any sign of the Blantons in five months they are not giving up hope, and the family says they hope issuing the reward will help bring any information to the surface.

"Help us find Sandy and Larry. It's been a long time, and we'd like to bring them home," said Fraley.

The Blantons' son Willie and his girlfriend Amanda are both still considered persons of interest in the case. They are both in jail on other charges.

Anyone with information should call the Johnson County Sheriff's Office.
