Cole County Mom Wants Answers
Peggy Florence, Haslag's mother, spoke with KOMU Sunday and there are some new developments in the case.
Florence has handed out fliers since her daughter first went missing in June but she still does not know what happened to the 32-year-old.
Pleading for help, she's offering $1,500 to anyone who might have the answer: "I never thought it would come to this. I never thought I would lose her to this," Florence said. "I just know I will never have a moment's rest until I find my daughter."
Florence said her daughter first went missing in June after getting mixed up with drugs. Since that time, there has been no sign of Haslag.
"I'm stuck in a really bad dream and I can't find the answers and can't find the pieces," Florence said.
The Cole County Sheriff's Deputy Dave Scherle says the department is trying to solve those pieces to the puzzle.
"There's no stone left unturned as far as this department. We're doing every possible thing that we can do," Scherle said.
Still, Florence calls the department looking for answers.
"Maybe I shouldn't be pushy, but I've been quiet long enough," she said.
She even added her own money to the reward after the search at the house where Haslag had been staying went cold.
"I'm beginning to wonder if they're really working that hard on it. I don't know," Florence said.
Scherle said Cole County has continued to investigate the case.
"The investigator for the sheriff's department has been there numerous times. Through the house, around the house, over the entire property," he said.
Yet more than two months since her disappearance, Haslag's mother fears she may have been killed.
"I've been through a lot of stuff, and in the back of my head I've always thought I could make it through anything except maybe the loss of a child," Florence said. "I've had some bad dreams before but boy this one tops it."
Despite the time that has passed since she last saw her daughter, Florence has one message for her: "I love you Jasmine, I loved you from the day you were born."
Boone County had five missing person cases in 2006 and there are currently two adults missing in Cole County. Haslag's mother set up a website that has more info about the case and how you can donate to the reward fund.
