Police have executed search warrants and pursued several leads in the case over the past two years, but have not turned up any information on where McClerkin could be.
Karena would have celebrated her 20th birthday in September.
The McClerkin family enlisted the services of four private investigators earlier this year to help them pursue some of those leads, including a tip from an inmate who believed she knew where McClerkin was buried. But that tip, like many others, didn't turn up anything new.
A $50,000 reward is still being offered for information on her case.
