    Williamson County officials are launching a new effort to investigate the disappearance of a Georgetown woman.

    Rachel Cooke, 19, vanished while jogging near her parents' home two years ago.

    Now the new Williamson County sheriff, Jim Wilson, is appointing a task force in hopes of gaining new clues.

    Sheriff Wilson says the task force will be made of members of local, state and federal agencies -- all with experience in cracking cold cases.

    That could also mean launching another large scale search.

    There's a $50,000 reward for information leading to Rachel's recovery.

    If you know anything about this case, call (800) 253-7867 or 253-STOP.

    You have all worked hard to get to this day, may you find comfort in knowing that you have done all that you can - and then some.

    Great to see what Tricia is doing in her downtime from here and JR is always on hand to provide us back home the most prompt photos! Thank you both for being there with RC and Janet - wish we all could have been.

    Do you think this new task force will have better search powers? That is, will they be able to go over properties that were formerly off-limits because owners would not give their consent?

    A search warrant will still need to be issued so they will need probable cause.

    Yes, of course.

    They will want to go by the book, in case they are ever able to bring to trial the person responsible.

    But once in awhile, I can't help wishing they could do things like they did 100 years ago, before Miranda and the ACLU and all the things that allow criminals to have more rights than their victims.

    Can you tell I'm really really upset about the Carlie Brucia murder?
