COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

Even as friends and family held a tearful birthday party for Paige Johnson this week, Covington police say they were out working leads on her disappearance.

For almost a full year, the mystery of what happened to her has haunted law enforcement in Kenton County.

"We still have officers assigned and we are going to continue to do this, and I have said this year ago, we are going to continue to do this until Paige is returned to her family," says Spike Jones of the Covington Police.

That commitment's shared by Commonwealth attorney Rob Sanders. He's not giving up on this case either.

"There are constantly new little small trickles of information that are being received by police and they have been very devoted in their pursuit of those leads and they will keep going," says Sanders.

Though Jacob Bumpass has never been named a suspect in Paige's disappearance, Sanders says police still have an interest in his connection to her.

And Spike Jones says, he's hopeful that this one year anniversary might lead to a new break in the case.

Jones has a message for those he says have information they are not telling.

"Please talk to us. That's someone's daughter. That's someone's mother. She's a human being, and she should be treated with that dignity," says Jones.
