PHILADELPHIA -

A day after Mayor Michael Nutter announced that the city would contribute to the reward the case of a girl abducted from her kindergarten class, that reward has now ballooned to $75,000.

A number of organizations have stepped forward to entice someone to come forward.

The reward will be paid for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the suspects involved in taking the 5-year-old girl from Bryant Elementary School.

The following contributions have been made to the reward fund:

  • $30,000 from the Office of state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams;
  • $10,000 from the NAACP Philadelphia, Black Clergy and other African American Leaders;
  • $10,000 from Local 332 Laborers District Council;
  • $10,000 from Mayor Michael Nutter's Office;
  • $5,000 from the U.S. Marshals;
  • $5,000 from the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5;
  • and $5,000 from the Citizens Crime Commission.

Investigators with the Philadelphia Police Department say there are still no suspects in the case.

The missing 5-year-old was taken from her Bryant Elementary School classroom in West Philly earlier this month. The girl was found the next morning hiding underneath a slide at an Upper Darby park.

Police would not elaborate on what happened to the girl from the time she was taken out of her classroom to the time she was found.
