FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Fort Myers Police Department is chipping in to double a reward offering for information that helps find a Fort Myers woman missing for the last 6 days.

The reward for finding her has now increased to $2,000.

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers has teamed up with the Fort Myers Police Department in an effort to bring Alberta Harris home to her family and friends.  Crime Stoppers is offering $1,000 for information leading to her discovery, and the Fort Myers Police Department is contributing an additional $1,000. 

50-year-old Harris disappeared last weekend, having been last seen at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, April 9.  She is known to drive a 2005 silver GMC Yukon truck, which was found Monday morning in a parking lot on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.  Harris, however, was not with her vehicle. 

Circumstances surrounding Harris’ disappearance are suspicious at this time.

Anyone with information on Harris’ whereabouts, or where she may have been seen in the days since last Saturday morning, is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.  Tips may also be made online at or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637) Keyword: REWARD.
