A Yakima woman is hoping new billboards of her missing son will lead to a break in the case of his disappearance.

The billboards were put up in December in Union Gap and Yakima.

They feature a picture of 58 year old Larry Riegel -- who has been missing since Christmas day of 2009.

Family members say they will continue to have more billboards posted until Riegel is found.

"[It] Makes people aware of it, makes people not forget about him, see if they can't start talking about it," said Riegel's mother Cecelia Downey, "If they talk about it, they'll be talking to somebody else, and maybe we will get a clue somewhere."

Riegel's family says the missing person case still remains open and active.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Yakima Police.
