The family and friends of Kara's parents, Dale and Sheila Tingle, established a reward fund for information leading to Kara's whereabouts.

Rigdon also has a scar on the bridge of her nose. She has multiple tattoos - stars and the moon on the right side of her neck, a Harley-Davidson tattoo on her left ring finger and a West Coast Choppers cross on her right ankle.
