BALTIMORE, Md. — For two years the family of a missing pregnant woman has been putting together pieces to try and find her.

On Sunday night that search took to the screen as a documentary on Akia Eggleston was released at the West Nursery Cinemas.

“We’re asking and hoping that it will touch someone’s heart,” Eggleston’s stepfather Shawn Wilkinson. “If someone knows anything. If they saw something if they heard something, anything that they saw they just need to say something.”

The Baltimore mother was eight months pregnant with her second child when she disappeared.

Family, friends, and police say they haven’t heard anything from her since.

She was last seen at a bank near the Inner Harbor.

Paul Woolf is the Executive Producer of the documentary.

“The series was inspired by a documentary we released in the UK last year,” Woolf said. “The film was about a missing persons case in a small town outside of London. In that case the film did help generate new leads and new information in the case. We really hope our films here have a similar impact.”

Her grandfather Eric Wilson said she would never just leave her family behind.

“It’s been hard for the family not having her around. It’s not only her it’s you know my great grandson that’s missing as well,” said Wilson.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 dollar reward for information in this case..

The documentary will be available on Oxygens website on October 21.
