Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

The $10,000 reward for information offered by the Missing Children Society of Canada (MCSC) in the Tamra Keepness case is scheduled to expire at midnight today, August 5th. Although the window on this reward offer is closing, the organization has vowed that this will remain an active case until Tamra is found.

"We know that someone out there holds a key piece of information that would bring this case to a close," said Wendy Christensen, manager of the Investigation Unit at MCSC.

"It has been over 7 years now since Tamra disappeared, but its never too late to do the right thing for her. The sizeable reward aside, we know that doing the right thing is what will be most meaningful to whoever can help us find Tamra."

"You can even remain anonymous and confidential by calling us toll-free at 1-800-661-6160."

The reward announcement was originally made on July 5th, which marked 7 years since Tamra vanished from her home in Regina. In an ongoing effort to encourage the public to come forward with information, MCSC announced their $10,000 reward for information leading to Tamra's whereabouts. The reward offer boosts the $25,000 reward that is being offered by Regina Board of Police Commissioners.

Tamra was last seen at her Regina home at approximately 11pm on Monday, July 5, 2004.

Anyone with information can contact MCSC confidentially through their 24-hour toll-free TIP line at 1-800-661-6160 or by email at tips@mcsc.ca. MCSC investigator Wendy Christensen can be contacted directly at 403-291-0705 ext. 234. The public can also contact Sgt. Brent Shannon with the Regina Police at 306-777-6453.
