Long, agonizing year for mother of missing woman

Long, agonizing year for mother of missing woman

MARIETTA, GA (WXIA) – For the first time, we are hearing from the mother of a woman who disappeared a year ago.

Twenty-seven year-old Tiffany Whitton was last seen standing outside a Walmart in Marietta. Her mother started a Facebook page, hoping to get answers.

Now, there is a reward in the case.

Lisa Daniels is desperate for answers – for herself, for her family, and especially for a 7-year-old girl who misses her mommy.

Daniels clutches her missing daughter's photo outside the place where Whitton was last seen a year ago – September 13, 2013.

"I'm just begging," Daniels said. "I know that people know. I know somebody out there knows where she is; what happened to her. Who might be involved."

Marietta Police are offering a $2,500 reward in hopes of getting someone to talk.
