CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The parents of missing local mom Jacque Waller are now changing the focus of the reward fund.

While they still want justice, their main goal is finding their daughter.

Initially the reward money was set up for anyone who could provide information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Now it's simply available to the person who steps forward with information that leads directly to Jacque.

"I never believed it would take this long to find her", said Ruby Rawson-Jacque's Mom. "I still can't believe it's taken this long."

It's been more than a month with no answers. Stan and Ruby Rawson are now weary, but are more determined than ever to find their missing daughter, Jacque.

"It's tough to watch your wife cry herself to sleep at night, and wake up crying in the night, and her crying and praying in the morning," said Stan Rawson-Jacque's Dad. 

Not knowing what else to do, Stan Rawson decided to take the money talks approach.

"Here's a little incentive to find out where she is," said Stan Rawson.

The $3,500 in the reward fund is now dedicated to specifically finding Jacque.

"I don't care anything about the arrest and conviction part, that will take care of itself," said Stan Rawson. "I want my little girl."  

"I want the agony to stop," said Ruby Rawson. "I know there will be more, we can handle that if we just get her back and we know where she is."

Investigators say they continue to follow new leads daily, but still no sign of Jacque.

This weekend, search efforts will continue. Friends and even complete strangers will be out looking for the missing mom. They hope to cover a lot of ground.

"It's just wonderful the way people are coming out to help us," said Ruby Rawson. 

 Contact the Jackson Police Department, any tip can remain confidential.
