A Belton couple that wishes to remain anonymous put up $50,000 Saturday night, a number they hope will, once and for all, entice someone, somewhere, to tell what they know about Kopetsky’s May 2007 disappearance from Belton High School. “There are restrictions on it,” the donor told The Star Herald hours before the Saturday night fund-raiser at Belton’s German-American Club hall on the former Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base.
“No. 1, she has to come home alive. I believe she is alive and there are a lot of people here that feel the same way. And No. 2, the offer is only good for a limited amount of time.”
The group dedicated to finding missing Belton teen Kara Kopetsky has added an additional $50,000 to the fund for information leading to her safe return by her 19th birthday on February 17, 2009. There is already a $30,000 reward for information in her disappearance.
