COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Columbus Police Special Victims Unit are investigating after a Columbus woman mysteriously disappears.

Investigators say 25 year-old Renee Eldridge, who has been missing since the morning of July 4.

Her family believes someone came inside and kidnapped her from the home she shared with her mother. Family members say Eldridge came home around 3:00 a.m. after spending time with friends, who dropped her off.

"My mother returned to the home at 10:30 a.m. yesterday morning. Noticed that the screen has been removed from the window. Went into the house to find the back door wide open. My sister's room was ransacked. There was clearly a struggle in her room. Her keys, her cellphone everything was left here. She's the only thing missing," Nicole Eldridge, the victim's sister said. 

Her car is also still in the driveway of the home.

Police say Eldridge is 5’7, 120 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair with pink tips. She was wearing black shorts, and a black tank top with stripes. They also say she has a rose tattoo on her right shoulder and an anchor tattoo on her left forearm.

Chastain Properties, where Renee Eldridge is an apartment manager, is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the missing person case, property General Manager Betty Hannah said. On Tuesday, Nicole Eldridge said an additional $1,000 is being offered as part of the reward by Liberty Auto Sales.
