Reward offered in Baldwin Co. missing-child case

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - After nearly four decades with no new information, a California foundation has offered a $5,000 reward for information about a boy who disappeared from a Baldwin County campsite.

One of the largest manhunts in county history turned up no substantial clues to 4-year-old Danny Barter's whereabouts.

Barter's sisters, who now live in Texas, have pushed to restart efforts to locate their brother and the sheriff's office has renewed its interest in the case.

Wanda McNelly was 8 at the time of her brother's disappearance and says the reward is the latest attempt to mine the public's memory.

The money is being offered by the Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation of Modesto, Calif. and was announced by the sheriff's office Monday.
