The cash reward for information in the case of a missing Moncton woman has been increased to $12,000.
Jami Springer was last seen walking on McLaughlin Drive in Moncton the afternoon of Aug. 31. The 28-year-old woman was reported missing by her family on Sept. 4 and police are treating her disappearance as suspicious.
“This is our family's worst nightmare,” said Springer’s mother, Gillian Fletcher in September 2016. “Wondering where Jami is, who she's with and if she's safe.”
Crime Stoppers was already offering $2,000 for information on Springer’s whereabouts and her family had raised $8,000 through a GoFundMe page last year.
Family friend Jason Munn donated $2,000 more, bringing the total to $12,000.
“I saw Gillian at the store and she looked so tired,” said Munn. “She just looked worn out, so I thought there's got to be something I can do different.”
Munn dropped the cash off to Crime Stoppers last week.
“Money means nothing about giving that family peace,” he said.
It’s also sparked the RCMP to renew their calls for information.
"Locating Jami Springer continues to be an active investigation," said RCMP spokesperson Const. Hans Ouellette in a statement. "We continue to believe someone knows what happened to Jami. We strongly urge anyone with information to come forward to help find her."
Munn is asking for anyone with any kind of information to reach out.
“There's no such thing as bad information,” said Munn. “If somebody thought they saw Jami, call Crime Stoppers and tell them. Share with all your friends when you see Facebook posts, social media, share with everybody.”
Jami’s friends and family describe her as having a beautiful spirit with a love for colourful and distinctive tattoos.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
