Celina Cass was last reported seen in her 863 Washington Street, West Stewartstown, home on the evening of July 25, 2011. She was reported missing on July 26, 2011. After an extensive six-day search, Celina's body was discovered on August 1, 2011, submerged in the Connecticut River. Her death has been deemed suspicious.

The FBI reiterates that the reward remains in effect for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of any individual or individuals involved in Celina's death. In addition, a reward fund has been established for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of any individual or individuals involved in Celina's death. Those wishing to contribute to the reward fund can make donations to a specially established account at the Northway Bank, Gorham, New Hampshire, telephone number (603) 466-5467, attention Susan Small.
