Reward offered in case of missing women

VANCOUVER - The number of women who have vanished from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside continues to grow. Four women were recently added to the list, bringing the total to 31.
     Many people believe the disappearances can only be explained by a serial killer. Police insist they have no evidence to support that theory but they have teamed up with B.C.'s Attorney General and the Host of the television show "America's Most Wanted" to raise the public profile of the case, which continues to baffle authorities.
     Publicly, police still maintain they have no proof a serial killer is preying on women in the Downtown Eastside. The women have been described as sex trade workers. Most of them have disappeared within the last four years. No bodies have ever been found, but the City of Vancouver, and the Attorney General's Office are now offering a $100-thousand reward for information on the missing women.
     The case has now also drawn the attention of the television show "America's Most Wanted". "It's very unusual for 31 people no matter what they do, no matter what trade they're in, to disappear like that," said John Walsh, who hosts the show, which is in Vancouver shooting a segment on the missing women.
     Walsh says his show has helped capture almost 600 fugitives in 30 different countries. He says the power of television, combined with the reward being offered in B.C., might just be enough to help police crack this case. The episode of "America's Most Wanted" that features the Vancouver case will air this Saturday.
