FBI using billboards in hopes of identifying missing woman

The FBI is blanketing the area with billboards as a means of solving the mystery that might have a local connection.

A missing girl was 14-years-old when she disappeared eight years ago from Cleveland, Ohio. Her name is Ashley Summers.

Authorities want to know if she is living in the East Coast.

The FBI is blanketing the area with billboards as a means of solving the mystery that might have a local connection.

The billboards show a picture of the young woman.

And this is not the first time she might have been spotted.

A photo from a Rhode Island ATM machine also shows the picture of someone who resembles Summers.

"We just really want to know if this is Ashley Summers," Anderson said. "She's been gone from this area since 2007, and if it's not, then we'll continue looking for Ashely, but if it is, that would be remarkable."

Aside from the woman, the billboards also showcase a man. It's unclear of their connection.

When the surveillance shots became public in Rhode Island, however, it was believed that they were connected to cards that were stolen from purses and then used to withdraw money from an ATM. There have been no leads so far.

"We have leads coming into 1-800-Call-FBI, so as they come in to that number they'll be sent out to us in Cleveland to go through and disseminate wherever they need to be followed up on. So, that's something I'm sure the case agent is staying right on top of."

This could be the biggest crack in the case since 2013.
