Reward increased for information to help find Jami Springer

A reward to help find a New Brunswick woman, missing since August, has been increased to $12,000.

Jami Springer was last seen walking on McLaughlin Drive in Moncton the afternoon of Aug. 31.

The 28-year-old woman was reported missing by her family a week later and police are treating her disappearance as suspicious.

Crime Stoppers was already offering $2,000 for information on Springer’s whereabouts, and her family had raised $8,000 through a GoFundMe page last year.

Family friend Jason Munn donated $2,000 more, bringing the total to $12,000.

"I saw Gillian [Fletcher, Springer's mom] at the store and she looked so tired," Munn told CTV Atlantic. "She just looked worn out, so I thought there's got to be something I can do different."

"Money means nothing about giving that family peace."

RCMP Const. Hans Ouellette says police believe someone knows what happened to Springer and he's strongly urging anyone with information to come forward.

Members of her family have been flooding social media with pictures of Springer in the hopes someone will recognize her and have information to help find her.

The RCMP have posted numerous pictures of Springer, most showing her various tattoos.
