LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A year after two Lubbock State School employees were last seen alive, police have made no arrests in the murder of one of the women or the disappearance of her co-worker.

Peggy Merimon and 51-year-old Kay Harrelson were last seen August ninth leaving the state school with an unidentified man.

Searchers found Harrelson's remains eleven days later off a dusty road near Shallowater.

Family members continue to organize searches nearly every weekend for Merimon, who was 61 when she disappeared.

Police say they're reviewing the case's details and re-interviewing everyone involved.

Family members are offering a ten-thousand dollar reward for information on Merimon's whereabouts. They're also offering another 25-thousand dollars to anyone who provides info leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for her disappearance.
