Honesty is the best policy – when there is money in it.
Most of the 2,726 children listed at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) have no rewards payable for their save return. For those that do, there have been few updates in their disappearances. When rewards are announced, they seem to increase the number of tips concerning the missing child but in many instances the tips seem to be personal theories more than significant leads, so how effective are they?
At one time there was a £2.5m or at today’s exchange rate $ 3,776,429 reward for missing Madeleine McCann. The reward amount is no longer listed on the site so whether it is still available is unclear.
However, these are some other available rewards from some random missing children cases. In some instances they of are offered for information or for the child’s safe return, while in others it is for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the abduction.
Amber Dubois $60,000
Brittanee Drexel $12,000
