Many people giving financially to help find Fairfield woman

Katelyn Markham Katelyn Markham

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - On Saturday it will be two weeks since 22-year-old Katelyn Markham was last seen at her Fairfield town home. Police still have very little information to where she might be, but tell Fox 19 they are strongly leaning toward foul play in this case.

"I just want someone that knows something to say it, speak up," said David Markham, Katelyn's father. "Somebody knows something, and we need to know that."

No one with information regarding Katelyn's whereabouts is speaking up.

In Fairfield, everywhere you look, a reminder of Katelyn is visible. Volunteers have printed flyers and made buttons, all in hopes for someone to see Katelyn's face and come forward with information.

"Just showing her face, getting face time," said Markham. "Remind people that she is missing and don't forget."

There are also some making financial contributions to help bring Katelyn home. Like an anonymous donor offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with valuable information.

And Lamar Advertising of Cincinnati is running billboards in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky showing Katelyn's face to hundreds of drivers each day.

Also, Lisa Schwarz, a friend of Katelyn's father has been taking up small donations to add to a reward.

"I've been carrying it [bucket] everywhere I go, to all the local businesses," said Schwarz. "Where ever I stop in for the day or if I see something where there might be people there willing to help out."

Schwarz says a monetary incentive could lead to finding Katelyn.

Schwarz says she is even willing to donate $5,000 of her own money.

"With the $5,000 I'm donating, that would make it $10,000 total," said Schwarz. "If it was my kids, I hope my friends would do the same."

Friends and family are having another search Saturday at 2 p.m. at Harbin Park in Fairfield.

    The hacking attempts mirror similar Russian attacks ahead of the 2016 election, which U.S. intelligence officials have said were focused on helping to elect Republican Donald Trump to the presidency by hurting his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
