has been started requesting any surveillance from street cameras to dash cameras that may have captured Toni Anderson's last whereabouts be released to the public.

The 20-year-old was reported missing on Jan. 15.

She sent a text to a friend at early that same morning stating she was being pulled over by police.

Investigators say a North Kansas City officer pulled over Toni's 2014 Ford for an illegal lane change early that Sunday morning. The officer gave Anderson a warning, then escorted her to a QuikTrip to get gas.

Hundreds have signed the online petition for video release as any questions remain unanswered in the search for her.

Toni's parents say they did not get that petition going and they trust that police are doing the right thing.

"We just don't want to take a chance pressuring them, or putting undue pressure on them to release something if they're not prepared to do that," Toni's father, Brian Anderson says.

There have also been several posts showing up on social media saying Toni's phone has recently "pinged" in an area. However, Brian Anderson says he has not heard of that and believes if it was true, police would have told him.

He says investigators have expanded their search to neighboring states and a conference call is scheduled with police Friday morning to discuss the case and any possible new information.

Police say, at this time, there is no sign of foul play in Anderson's disappearance.
