PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - It's been nine years since little Shannon Paulk was kidnapped from her Prattville area mobile home park. There are still no answers that can lead investigators to the person who left her body in a wooded area not far from her home.

Hunters found Paulk's body in the Autauga County Wildlife Management area on October 6th, 2001, nearly two months after her disappearance.

In 2007, police released these sketches of the man seen with Shannon the day she disappeared.

Nearly a decade separates the murder from the ongoing investigation, but authorities aren't giving up hope, and they aren't closing the case. Two police officers recently traveled to Georgia and South Carolina hoping to follow up on leads. No specific details were available, however. The FBI and the ABI are also still involved.

The nationally syndicated show America's Most Wanted has profiled the case several times, the last being in 2007. There are also several cash rewards available for information leading to an arrest.

The Paulk case grabbed the attention of numerous agencies after striking similarities were made the disappearances of two other girls. All 3 girls were taken when they were 11 years old, all were white females, all were abducted in the month of August, and all were taken from trailer parks with construction going on nearby. One girl vanished from Georgia, the other was from north Alabama.

Shannon Paulk would have been 20 years old this year.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Prattville Police Department at 334-361-3671.
