Van Gelderen, then 25 years old, vanished from her parents' Druid Hills home on Aug. 19, 2017. She had been house-sitting, but when her brother arrived to meet her that evening she was gone.
Van Gelderen’s phone later pinged in Fairburn and her car was found two weeks later, miles away in Northwest Atlanta.
A spokesman for the DeKalb County Police Department said on Wednesday that the case is still open. Both state and federal authorities have been asked to assist; still there are no answers to where Van Gelderen went and if she was with anyone.

Police said previously that they don’t suspect foul play and that it appeared as if Van Gelderen left and locked the door behind her. She is on the autism spectrum, and her family said she sometimes had issues realizing when she was in dangerous situations.
For the second year in a row, family, friends and supporters were encouraged to light Shabbat candles in Van Gelderen’s honor last Friday.
Anyone with any information about Jenna’s disappearance is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at (404) 577-TIPS (8477).
