ABC News’ Mary Kathryn Burke and Clayton Sandell report: “We are now offering up to ten thousand dollars for the safe return of Kayleah Wilson,” Dave S. Joly of the FBI told the ABC News Law & Justice Unit.
The sixth-grader disappeared eight days ago walking from her Greeley Colorado home to a friend’s birthday party about a mile away. Investigators have gotten hundreds of tips and say they’ll check out every lead until Kayleah is found.
Investigators are currently no closer to finding out what happened to Wilson and are hoping a ten thousand dollar reward might generate new leads to help find her.
At a press conference, FBI Special Agent James Davis said that law enforcement is depending on a response to today’s announcement.
“We still need the public’s help,” he said. “The fact that we are offering this reward should probably indicate that we don’t have the number of leads we’d like to have.”
Davis was also asked at the presser whether there were any persons of interest being investigated.
“We’ve got some people that we’re looking at, and we’re really taking our time washing those folks out,” Davis said. “And that’s really what this type of investigation is. You identify folks that are of interest to you and you conduct an investigation that really excludes them from the investigation.”
