CULPEPER, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia State Police says it is continuing to investigate a 1996 homicide in Culpeper County.

Saturday marks the 17th anniversary since the disappearance of Alicia Showalter Reynolds.

The 25-year-old was abducted on Route 29 while traveling from Baltimore, Md., to Charlottesville. Her remains were found two months later.

The Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Culpeper Field Office has received more than 10,040 tips relating to the case.

More than two dozen tips have come in within the past year and officials are encouraging the public to come forward with any information related to the investigation.

Witnesses say a white male between 35 and 45 years old was stopped out with her vehicle. The man was driving a dark-colored pickup truck, possibly a green Nissan.
