Reward climbs for missing woman
Edmonton Sun by Staff
Relatives of an Alberta woman missing since 2006 are hoping to raise the reward for information leading to her whereabouts - $1 at a time.
"I'd like to try to make sure that we've done everything," said Glendene Grant, the mother of Jessie Foster, who disappeared at age 21 in Las Vegas.
The family is already offering a $10,000 reward, but Grant said she wants to increase it in the hopes of enticing someone to come forward. They're asking members of the public to donate as little as $1.
"I will not give up. We want her back one way or another," said Grant. "We've never said it has to be alive."
Foster left her home in Calgary about two years ago to move to Las Vegas, where she worked as a prostitute. In recent months, U.S. authorities have said they believe she may be a victim of a human-trafficking ring.
Since beginning the dollar-donation drive this week, Grant said the family has already been able to add several hundred dollars to the trust fund set up for the reward.
