Video: Reward offered to find woman missing for 20 years
For 20 years, Dorothy MacLean pleaded for someone to come forward with information on where her missing daughter may be.
Now, MacLean and a group of private investigators hope money will loosen lips.
A reward of more than $6,000 has been raised so far by the Jennifer Fay Foundation for information on where the teen, who went missing in 1989 at age 16, may be.
“We need someone to help bring this family some peace,” said Michelle Littlefield, one of the private investigators working on the case.
Jennifer Fay went missing on Nov. 14, 1989, in Brockton, where her family then lived. She was last seen on Broad Street after leaving her family’s home. Her mother later moved to Rockland and now lives in Raynham.
State and Brockton police have interviewed dozens of people from Florida to Maine in an effort to find clues to what happened to Fay.. A team of private investigators working pro bono through the Molly Bish Foundation have also joined the effort, tracking down more witnesses and conducting — along with police — several searches in the area.
The foundation was launched recently to raise money to help pay for some of the searches and post a reward for information on where Fay, who is now presumed dead, may be.
“Anything that can bring a resolution to the family will be good,” Lt. John Crowley, chief of detectives, said.
The foundation is now hoping to boost the reward with money raised at a fundraiser Friday night.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and Hancock will take the stage at 7 p.m. Tickets are $40 each. Snacks, coffee and tea will be provided.
Littlefield said the group is hoping to eventually raise $25,000 for the fund.
