The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is now offering a $1,000 reward for information in the case regarding a mother found dead and her still missing 4-month-old daughter.

Metro police pulled the body of 28-year-old Shauna Fryar from the Cumberland River on May 7, days after her husband first reported her and the infant, Zaylee Grace Fryar, missing. The two went missing from their Millersville, Tenn., home on May 1.

Zaylee is still missing and police in Nashville as well as Millersville continue to investigate the circumstances of her disappearance and Shauna Fryar’s death.

Shauna Fryar’s husband, who is not Zaylee Fryar’s father, reported his wife missing to Millersville police on Thursday, May 5, telling them that when he returned from the store on Sunday, May 1, his wife and the infant were gone. He told police it was not unusual for Shauna Fryar to leave home for a few days at a time.

Investigators said they found the mother’s cell phone, purse and car as well as the baby’s diaper bag at their home on C Smith Road in Sumner County.

Zaylee Fryar’s biological father was incarcerated in a Robertson County Jail at the time of the disappearance and is not a suspect.
