FLINT, Michigan — Officials are making another attempt to find a Flint girl who disappeared in 1998.

The Flint Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1vuhGqE ) Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a $2,500 reward for new information that will lead investigators to 14-year-old Coral Hall, who is presumed dead. Her body hasn't been found, but her grandmother is charged in her death.

Crime Stoppers earlier offered a $1,000 reward.

Lois Janish was charged in August 2013 with murder. A Genesee County judge last month decided that the 75-year-old Flint woman can stand trial. Janish's attorney had asked the judge to dismiss the murder case against her client due to a lack of proof.

Flint Police Sgt. Greg Hosmer, a cold case investigator, has said he believes people have information about what happened but haven't come forward.
