Reward Reaches $21,000 for Information
Pertaining to Olivia Lone Bear’s Disappearance
DEC 13, 2017 – THREE AFFILIATED TRIBES RESERVATION, NEW TOWN, N.D. – Anonymous contributions to the reward for information about missing Indigenous mother of five, Olivia Lone Bear, have more than doubled the amount offered since the search began in late October.
“We cannot put into words how thankful we are as a family to receive such support from the community. Not every family that has a relative go missing is embraced in such a warm way. Our family has been uplifted how all families deserve to be. We can never repay that kindness, it means a lot.” Matthew Lone Bear, brother
With the addition of three donations over the course of the last four days, the amount has grown to $21,000. Offered is a one-time, non-incremental reward for information leading to Olivia’s safe return home or for information leading to the arrest of someone who may have harmed her.
Ground search volunteers beyond the reservation borders and from the region are still immensely needed to aid in the search. The Bakken oil field is far larger than the reservation alone. The family is also seeking aid from the community in neighboring states to help flyer as the search is rapidly expanding beyond North Dakota as well.
