CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Leads just keep coming in on a 45-year-old Cape Girardeau missing person's case. It's the oldest in Missouri.

The case will soon get national exposure, and two more women have come forward who believe they might be Elizabeth Ann Gill.

Gill disappeared from her front yard on Lorimier street in 1965. Authorities and Gill's family members say children were kidnapped in those days for different reasons, and that's a big part of why they believe Beth could still be alive.

Meanwhile, they feel national exposure is key to getting new leads and reaching out to people who feel there's a possibility they could be Beth. DNA testing has already ruled out four individuals.

Both The Today Show, and Inside Edition will be interviewing the family for segments that will air nation wide.

"We feel like national exposure will really help bring in leads," said Det. Jimmy Smith with the Cape Girardeau Police Department.

As Heartland News reported just weeks ago, the FBI is now looking into the case as a kidnapping. Also, authorities say they have tracked down two more persons of interest in the case.
