Reward offered for missing woman

ANDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information about a missing Middle Tennessee woman.

Nikki Burgess was last heard from more than six weeks ago when she sent a text message to a friend saying the was having a fight with Caleb Cannon, the father of her 10 year-old son.

Last month, authorities said Burgess is likely dead and searched Caleb Cannon's Anderson County home. Police said they considered him a person of interest in the case.

Now Burgess' boyfriend is offering a cash reward, reinforcing the belief that she has died by asking for information about "the location in which Nikki's body was disposed of".

He said, "I want nothing more than the location of Nikki's body."

The boyfriend said he wouldn't ask questions or ask for identities, just information.

He said, "Bottom line is if you have the information, then I have the cash."

If you have any information you're asked to call police.
