The family of a missing Union County, South Carolina woman is joining SC Crime Stoppers in offering a reward for information related to her recent disappearance and/or current whereabouts.
Jessica Nichole Ashmore, 34, of Jonesville, S.C. has not been seen or heard from since Monday, May 20 – a span of forty days.
According to deputies with the Union County sheriff’s office, on that date Ashmore went for a walk on Jefferies Farm Road near Jonesville, S.C. and did not return home. She left behind her phone, her purse and an inhaler she uses for her chronic asthma.
Deputies believe Ashmore is in the Union, Jonesville, Pacolet or Spartanburg, S.C. areas.

She’s not responded to me since May 19th. I know my daughter and she would never do that unless something was wrong.”
