“Detectives from our office and around the Kansas City area have put in countless hours investigating this case," Cass County Sheriff Jeff Weber said in a news release. "At this point we need the public’s help to provide us with a tip or piece of information that can help solve this crime. This family deserves to know what happened to their daughter."

Authorities said they're still trying to determine who had contact with Brown on the day she disappeared, February 14, 2018.

The 18-year-old went out for a date and never came home.

In March 2018, her mother told FOX4 she helped her daughter get ready for the date. Brown's sister later told detectives the date was with a man in his 30s that she met on social media.

Mushroom hunters found Brown's body on April 28 in rural Cass County.
