The reward for information on a woman missing since 1985 in Guadalupe County just increased.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is now offering $6,000 for any information on the 1985 disappearance of Kathleen Laura Attwood Ranft, of Guadalupe County if the tip is received before the next featured Texas Ranger cold case is announced.

A $3,000 reward for information leading to an arrest is usually offered on all cases on the Texas Rangers? Cold Case website.

Ranft, 29, of Seguin, was reported missing on April 5, 1985, after she failed to show up for work at a local tire service business. Her employer contacted the Guadalupe County Sheriff?s Office, who initiated an investigation into her disappearance. Ranft?s vehicle was later located at a local nightclub.

Detectives have determined Ranft was the victim of foul play, likely a homicide. Several leads have developed over the years, but her body has not been found.

The Texas Rangers are assisting the Guadalupe County Sheriff?s Office with this investigation. Those with information about Ranft?s disappearance are encouraged to come forward and help bring closure to her family.

To be eligible for cash rewards tipsters MUST provide information to authorities by calling the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477). All tips are anonymous. Individuals can also submit information through the Texas Rangers? Cold Case website or by phone to the Missing Persons Hotline at 1-800-346-3243.
