PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

It's now been a decade since a young Prattville girl named Shannon Paulk disappeared. Her body was discovered two months later by hunters, but the person who killed her remains free.

Paulk, then 11, was kidnapped from Prattville's Candlestick Mobile Home Park on August 16, 2001.

Prattville police detectives have followed every possible lead, but say there's no update on the case that puts them any closer to solving it as it enters its tenth year.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation still have open cases, as well.

Her case has been featured nationally several times and drew national attention when it was discovered her case was eerily similar to the disappearance of at least two other 11-year-old Caucasian girls. In each case, the child was abducted from a trailer park with construction going on nearby. The disappearances each happened in the month of August.

Sketches of the man seen with the little girl the day she disappeared were drawn in 2007, but no viable suspects have been located.

Several monetary rewards have been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in Paulk's case.

Anyone with information can still contact the Prattville Police Department at 334-361-3671.

Shannon Paulk would be 21-years-old this year.
