Carrie Olson is still missing

Three billboards, all with Carrie Olson's image, have gone up in the Quad Cities area, with hopes that someone will come forward with information leading to her return. The 29-year-old was last seen on December 28, 2013, wearing a gray Iowa Hawkeyes sweatshirt with a black hood. The last confirmed sighting of her was at a Rock Island 7-Eleven, where she was seen getting gas in her car.

The next time her car was seen, a friend of Carrie's Tim McVay, was at that same gas station, on the same security camera, filling the car with gas again, just over 15 hours later. But Carrie was not in the car. McVay claims he had arranged to borrow the car to drive himself and a girlfriend to the airport in Minneapolis, where they then boarded a plane for Las Vegas. When they returned a few days later, they turned the car in to authorities.

It's so odd, that Carrie would lend her car to her friend, for a few days, and make no other arrangements for travel, right? She still had to work and probably needed her car for other things. And is it just a strange coincidence that the day she lends out her car is the last day that anyone saw her? It seems like there's something fishy in Tim McVay's story, though he has not been named a suspect in Carrie's disappearance.

There is a $12,000 reward for information leading to Carrie's whereabouts. With her being gone for nearly 3 months, it's possible, yet unlikely, that there will be any good news.
