WABASHA, Minn. (AP) -- The police chief in Wabasha has reopened the case of a missing 25-year-old woman who disappeared in 1990, and he's started a cold case unit to help find her.

The Rochester Post-Bulletin reports Chief Jim Warren is putting new effort into finding Donna Ingersoll, who was last seen leaving her Wabasha apartment on Dec. 16, 1990.

Warren says he asking others in law enforcement to help, including sheriff's officials and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Ingersoll's sister, Sharon Ziemer of Hammond, says her family agreed to reopening the case. She says the family needs answers.

Warren says he wants to "rattle some cages" and he believes someone in the community knows something.

He also said advancements in technology could help crack the case.
