Rebecca Ware of St. Augustine, FL, didn't show up for her job at Hydro America for two days, which led to family members filing a missing persons report declaring her missing since October 29.
Recent reports say that she had been involved in past violent relationships, and family members are worried that fact may be connected to her disappearance.
Her car was found abandoned in the parking lot of a local grocery store and is being processed for evidence as the search for Rebecca continues.
A release from the sheriff's office said detectives have developed new evidence over the last three days that pushed them to reclassify the case.
Investigators now suspect foul play, and have a person of interest, although they are not releasing any further details at this time.There have been four missing women this year in St. John's County. The first two, Brittany Tavar and Jan Keller were killed. The case of Shannon Hawkins, who disappeared in July, is still unsolved.
Rebecca's employer is offering a $5000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the person responsible for her disappearance, as well as the local Crimestoppers reward of $1000.
5 feet 7 inches tall and 160 pounds with blue eyes and dark brown hair with blond highlights.
Anyone who may have come in contact with Ware since she disappeared or who may have additional information concerning her whereabouts should contact St. Johns County Detective Charles Brantley at 904-824-8304 or Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-888-277-TIPS.
