UPDATE: LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) -- 25-year-old Emily Anderson from Loves Park has been missing for a week now, so her family and friends are now offering $10,000 for information leading to Emily's safe return.

EZ Auto Sales in Machesney Park posted on their Facebook page Saturday night that they will pay $5,000 for information leading to Anderson’s safe return. Emily's sister, Caitlin Dull says the reward is now up to $10,000 as of Sunday night because two family friends, along with herself are offering an additional $5,000 for information.

"We are just hoping someone can please come forward and help get her home safe. If she has her medication she only has enough to last her until July 9th, she cannot function properly without it. We are very scared as this is not something she has ever done before or would do on her own," says Emily's sister, Caitlin Dull.

Emily Anderson was reported missing by family who say she was seen last Sunday morning wearing black slacks and a white top. They say she is about 5’6”, around 130 pounds, with black hair and green eyes. Her noise is pierced and she has tattoos on her chest and both arms.

Investigators say she may be driving a silver 2002 Pontiac Grand Am with Illinois plates V414149.

According to Emily’s father, Emily has epilepsy that she takes medication for and it's unclear whether she has that medication with her.

Anyone with information on Anderson’s whereabouts is asked to call the Loves Park Police Department.
