$17,000 reward extended in Victoria Prokopovitz disappearance
The Brown County Sheriff's Office has announced the extension of a $17,000 reward for information leading to the discovery of a missing Pittsfield woman.
The reward is being offered by the family of Victoria Prokopovitz. The reward expires every 90 days and must be extended.
Prokopovitz was last seen at 10 p.m. on April 25, 2013, at her home at 5118 Kunish Road in Pittsfield.
She was discovered missing the next day.
Prokopovitz, who was 60 at the time of her disappearance, left behind her purse, ID, money, and cell phone.
In May of 2015, Action 2 News learned state and local officials conducted a search of the rental home shared by Prokopovitz and her husband James, as well as all buildings on the property.
To get the search warrant granted, investigators wrote in documents that there is "reasonable inference that Prokopovitz is a victim of foul play such as a homicide and-or kidnapping."
They seized hard-drives, a cell phone, financial records, and swabs of blood from the floors in a bedroom, kitchen, hallway and a pillow.
The Brown County Sheriff's Office did not comment to Action 2 News on the search.
Action 2 News spoke with James Prokopovitz on the phone. He said he willingly allowed investigators to search his property and said he would have let them do it without a warrant.
