AMERICAN FORK, Utah, March 6, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A $5,000 reward has been offered for information on the whereabouts of Jerika Alvey Binks, missing from American Fork since Feb. 18.

Binks’ family, along with Fast Gas Convenience Stores, is offering the cash reward for successful help in finding her or for details that lead to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved with her disappearance, according to information from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.

Binks, 24, was last seen at about 9 a.m. in the area of 300 N. 1100 E. (North Utah County Boulevard) in American Fork. She had been staying at a residential treatment center.

Police believe she may have gone for a run that morning. Since she left, there has been no activity from her phone or on her bank account. Binks left all her belongings behind except for her phone, including her wallet and ID, the UCSO statement said.

A family and volunteer search of the area last weekend failed to turn up any leads. Members of the Utah County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue team also spent last week using air assets and ground crews, including K-9s, searching those areas, without success.

Binks is described as white, 5 feet 4 inches, 120 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. Foul play has not been ruled out.
