COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - It's one of the coldest of cases in Columbia Police Department history, and it remains cold to the touch these days.

Twenty-two years ago on Sept. 24, 1992, 23-year-old Dail Dinwiddie vanished without a trace from Five Points after a U2 concert.

In the weeks that followed, an unprecedented search covered hundreds of miles in the Midlands as Dinwiddie's family and law enforcement officials sought clues in her disappearance.

Dinwiddie's parents, Dan and Jean Dinwiddie have not given up even after two decades. They, alongside the Columbia Police Department, released a statement asking any one for information about the case.

"On this 22nd anniversary of Dail Dinwiddie's disappearance we are so appreciative of the continued interest and efforts of the public, law enforcement, the media and friends and family to find Dail," the statement said. "We continue to search for a conclusion to this tragedy. We are a family heartbroken over the loss of our child and the lack of resolution. Please continue your thoughts and prayers for Dail."

Dail's family continues to offer a $20,000 reward for information that could lead them to Dail.

If you have any information about this case, please call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
