THE BILLBOARD IS NOW UP!! It took 1200 to get it in place, and we've been paying 300 a month in billboard rent since March. We must continually raise money to keep it up!
We need $300 a month to maintain it. Please donate to help us keep it in place. We almost have enough funding to keep it in place through September.
This fundraiser has been organized by The Fall Line Podcast and Unresolved podcast.
The amazing listeners of The Fall Line Podcast have donated $3,000 to create a reward in the case of missing Augusta, GA twins Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook. Along with generous donations of $2,500 each from Encompass Studio and the Osteen Law Firm, the total reward fund is now at $8,000. That is certainly enough money to spark renewed interest in the twins’ case and generate new tips. Unfortunately, the family has recently learned that the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office has decided not to announce or publicize the reward. The twins’ sister has been hard at work, along with Michael Whelan of The Unresolved podcast, hanging up fliers to spread word of the reward.
This billboard lets residents who lived in the area at the time see that a reward is being offered. Our greatest hope in this case is that someone who knows something from the past will be motivated to speak. Assuring that the public knows about the reward is vital to making that hope a reality. Thank you!

As a community, we have spent the past four months drawing attention to the story of the twins and working to advocate for their family. Two sisters, Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook, went missing in March of 1990, and virtually nothing was done to find them. The girls, working class and African American, received no media attention. Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook were 15 when they disappeared while walking home from the Pump N Shop convenience store in Augusta, GA. The family has lived with unanswered questions for 27 years. Despite their family's protests, the twins' file was closed on hearsay in 1991. It was reopened in 2013, but until recently, there have been no new leads. Podcasts have taught us that media attention can pull witnesses and stories and confessions out of the mist surrounding cold cases. Something we have learned from combing through other cold case files: a reward can make a huge difference and announcing that reward is vital to make community members aware.
