Continued commitment from local residents has increased the reward fund for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Chance’s abuser once again.

Additional financial pledges over the last 24 hours have led to the reward jumping by $2,100 to a total of $16,600.  Of that reward, $13,600 would be awarded upon the arrest and conviction of the person responsible, with the other up to $3,000 being rewarded to an anonymous tipster who provides information leading to an arrest only in Chance’s case.
