UPDATE (1/13): California City officials say the city received a total of $20,000 from two local organizations to provide as rewards for information that brings Orrin and Orson West home.
City Manager Anna Linn said the city has received $10,000 from Victory Baptist Church’s Ron and Kim Smith and another $10,000 from West Coast Realty. They add to the $80,000 in rewards already being offered for information that leads to the discovery of the boys, bringing the total to $100,000.
(1/11): CALIFORNIA CITY, Calif. (KGET) — The adoptive family of Orrin and Orson West is now offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to the return of the boys, who were reported missing last month.
The family announced the reward in a statement on the online platform Medium and said it is putting up the money for the reward, which will join others that have already been announced. This will bring the total to $80,000 in rewards.
Businesses have offered rewards totaling $25,000 to anyone who can find the boys. Last week, the California City council approved a proposal to match the reward with city reserve funds but the information must lead to an arrest and conviction.
Anyone with information about the boys is urged to call 760-373-8606 or 661-327-7111.
