The family of a missing Burnaby man has doubled its reward to $100,000 for information leading to his whereabouts.

It was a year ago today that Kellen McElwee’s car was found near his Burnaby apartment, six days after he was last seen leaving a Keg restaurant in Langley.

Now, with the tips and leads having dried up, McElwee’s parents announced they’ve bumped the reward, hoping that’s enough incentive for someone who knows what happened to their son to call police.

“Investigators have received a number of tips in this investigation (but they) have not been significant enough to assist in moving the investigation forward,” said RCMP Cpl. Dale Carr.

In July, investigators said they had information the 25-year-old was dead but never disclosed any other details.

“The claimant’s information must lead the police directly to the location of Kellen’s remains,” said Carr.

“There is no doubt that someone out there has the information police need to move this file forward. The amount of money that the McElwees are offering is significant and could change a person’s life.”
