ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW. COM) – It was 25 years ago Wednesday when Amber Hagerman was kidnapped in Arlington.

With the crime still unsolved the Arlington Police Department looked to renew the public’s interest surrounding her abduction and subsequent murder on January 13, 1996.

The crime led to the development of the Amber Alert System, which is now used worldwide to send public signals about missing children in danger.

Amber, who was 9 years old at the time, was taken from the parking lot of an abandoned grocery store as she rode her bicycle.

Now, 25 years after the crime, Amber’s killer is still on the loose.

With the focus still on finding the person responsible for the murder, Arlington police gathered at the site of the abduction, 1600 E.

She was only a little girl,” Amber’s mother Donna Williams said at Wednesday’s press conference.

“We remain committed with the utmost resolve to bring Amber’s murderer to justice,” said Assistant Police Chief Kevin Kolbye.

Arlington police Sgt. Ben Lopez said during press conference that there could be more witnesses who were in the area but have not spoken out.

Investigators in Arlington are also hopeful new DNA technology could lead to a break in the case.

As soon as February, police said they plan to submit evidence to a lab that will use a new process to try to develop a DNA profile that could lead to a suspect.

However, new techniques in developing DNA profiles have led to a break in cold cases over the past year, including the 1974 murder of Carla Walker in Fort Worth.

Othram, a forensics lab in the Woodlands, was able to develop a DNA and use genealogy to lead investigators toward a suspect in that case.

Give Amber justice.

Amber needs justice, deeply needs justice,” Williams said.

“And to anyone who has seen or heard anything about Amber’s case, please come forward. ”
