ONEIDA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) –
A $20,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest regarding the disappearance of Tammy Mahoney.
The FBI says “recent events” have led to new information in the case. They hope the reward will propel someone to come forward with information.
Mahoney was last seen in Oneida on May 8, 1981, hitchhiking along State Route 46. She was picked up and taken to a party on the Oneida Nation.
The Oneida Nation Police announced on Thursday that they will be matching the FBI’s $20,000 reward– both agencies will be offering a $20,000 reward.
Despite the age of the case, police have been actively working it.
In June of 2016, investigators conducted a new search of a property off Chestnut Ridge Road in the Town of Sullivan. Not long after, the search was ruled inconclusive.
Mahoney, a Long Island native, was attending college in Morrisville when she disappeared.
She has not been seen since, and her body has ever been located.
Mahoney was 20 at the time of her disappearance.
If you have any information on the case, you can contact the Utica FBI office at 315-731-1781.
