Indianapolis - A mother is asking for help to solve the four-year-old case of her missing son, so she can have closure.
Neatrice Billingsley is hoping a reward and a personal plea will lead to her son.
"I go to sleep, 'Where is my child? Where is my child? What happened to him?,' you know," Billingsley said.
Her son, 20-year-old Jason Ellis, was last seen at an apartment on Willow Tree Lane on December 3, 2006.
"In that apartment complex, I find it hard to believe nobody seen or heard anything," Billingsley said. "Unfortunately, we live in a cold, callous, calculating world. People don't seem to care about people."
Detective C. Gold got the cold case in 2008.
"I interviewed a great number of people, I traveled the bigger portion of northern Indiana and into Chicago. Some people of interest have come up, but to make a long story short, I am no further along here in 2010-2011 than I was when I first got the case or even 2006, when this case first came to light," Det. Gold said.
"I am appealing to the people of this city," Billingsley said. "I simply want to know what happened to my son and where is his remains."
Ellis was 6'1" tall, weighing 160 pounds. It is hoped a new, $1,000 reward will lead to information that solves the case.
"It's easier if you have your child taken from you and you have them laid to rest, because you have that closure. I have none," Billingsley said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS. Any information will be anonymous.
