January 10, 2021 (Williamson County, TX) – For nearly two decades, dedicated detectives from the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO), along with multiple assisting agencies, have been searching for Rachel Cooke, who went missing January 10, 2002, in Georgetown.
Today, on the anniversary of her disappearance, WCSO is seeking the public’s help and knowledge on a subject in connection to her missing case.
After investigating over 2,000 tips, and eliminating numerous individuals suspected to have been involved with Rachel’s disappearance, now WCSO is looking for a subject that was living in the Georgetown area in 2002 and has travelled to multiple cities throughout the state of Texas.
The subject is known to have been an associate of Rachel’s while she was in the Georgetown area. The subject is also known to be involved in the cattle/horse industry. WCSO believes they may have mentioned to an acquaintance the details pertaining to the disappearance of Rachel, likely speaking of the incident in third person and distancing himself from any actual involvement.
The Cooke family have gone nineteen years without closure, and it’s WCSO’s goal to bring Rachel back to her family and give them the peace they deserve. WCSO is requesting that media partners in Central Texas, Concho County Area, Amarillo, and Terlingua, please share this information with the public.
WCSO, in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, is offering up to $100,000 for information leading to the location of Rachel Louise Cooke. If anyone has any information concerning Rachel or the person of interest, please call 512-948-2911 or the COLD CASE TIP LINE at 512-943-5204.
