Montgomery, Vermont - September 24, 2009

Authorities were in Franklin County Thursday, again searching for evidence in connection with the baffling disappearance of teenager Brianna Maitland.

Vt. State police and Fish and Wildlife wardens once again renewed the search around a barn on Route 118 in Montgomery where Brianna Maitland's car was found on March 20, 2004. The 17-year-old was last seen the day before as she left her waitress job at the Black Lantern Inn a mile and half away.

Police suspect she was the victim of foul play.

"We have old leads that we work on. We have new leads that we follow up on and this search is just a part of the overall ongoing investigation. And we tend to search areas sometimes that we searched already and sometimes we'll search new areas and there may not be reasons for that but we like to be thorough and make sure that we haven't overlooked anything," Vt. State Police Det. Sgt. Matt Birmingham said. "We're looking for any evidence that will help us answer the questions that we have as to what happened to Ms. Maitland 5 years ago. And that's what we're out here doing. The state police will continue to devote resources to try to answer those questions."

Brianna Maitland's family is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to her location and $10,000 more for information that leads to the arrest of the person responsible for her disappearance.
