Relatives hold birthday vigil for missing teen Yasmin Acree

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Relatives of a Chicago girl who has been missing for four years offered an increased reward Thursday and held a vigil in hopes that someone will come forward with new information.

Yasmin Acree was 15 years old when she vanished from her home in the Austin neighborhood.

Police treated the case like a runaway for days and then finally, took the family's calls seriously.

Her diary shows that Yasmin was talking with a much older man who lived upstairs. That man was later charged with raping five women.

No sign of Yasmin has ever been found. The reward for information is now up to $10,000.
