(CBS/AP) GREENVILLE, Texas - A new $25,000 reward fund has been established for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in connection with the homicide case of Alicia Moore, a 16-year-old girl who disappeared on November 2, 2012 after getting off a school bus in Greenville, Texas, police announced Tuesday.

Authorities found Moore's body inside a trunk of a car along a highway in Van Zandt County on November 6, 2012, four days after her disappearance.

Many unanswered questions remain about the case. CBS DFW reports, police say they're keeping information close to the vest to protect the investigation. They're also waiting on forensics, like the DNA results taken from family members.

No suspects have been named in the case. Police in Greenville hope the new reward will help the investigation.

Moore's aunt, Jessica Byrd, is also renewing her plea to the public for help.

"If you know something, please just to help give the family closure, just do the right thing. That's all we ask. There's money out there. Some people say money talks. Hey, this is your chance," Byrd said, according to CBS DFW.

This is the second reward fund established in connection with the case. The family was in charge of the initial fund but shut it down because they say people were using it to advertise businesses, CBS DFW reports.

The new reward fund is handled by Crimestoppers and was made possible through donations.

Anyone with information connected to the death of Alicia Moore is urged to contact the Greenville Police Department at 903-457-2900 or Hunt County Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929.
