Seven Months After David Bird's Disappearance, Reward Offered For Information

August 11, 2014 at 11:46 AM

LONG HILL TOWNSHIP, NJ - Today, Aug. 11, marks seven months since David Bird disappeared. According to the Long Hill Township Police Department, a $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the return of David Bird, who disappeared while taking a short walk near his Long Hill Township home.

The $10,000 reward was contributed by Dow Jones & Co., which publishes The Wall Street Journal and for whom Bird has worked for more than 20 years. Witnesses are encouraged to call the Long Hill Township Police at (908) 647-1800. The LHTPD follows up on all leads.*
 
The 55-year-old Boy Scout leader and marathoner went for a walk the afternoon of Jan.11 and has not been seen since. Searchers, rescue dogs and divers have combed the wooded areas, lakes and rivers near the routes Bird was known to frequent on his regular hikes and runs, but have yet to uncover any clues to his whereabouts. In addition, law enforcement officials have thoroughly examined Bird’s financial records, cell phone history, and email and text correspondence and have found no reason to conclude he was involved in anything untoward that would have prompted him to abandon his family. “There’s no evidence that David was a victim of foul play,” adds family friend and spokesperson Carolyn Buscarino, “but there’s also no evidence he wasn’t. The $10,000 reward is meant to encourage any witnesses who may have seen something to come forward with information that will help end the family’s agony of uncertainty. The Bird family is incredibly grateful to Dow Jones & Co. for its generosity and support.”
 
Bird is 6’1” and weighed approximately 200 pounds at the time of his disappearance. He has gray hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a red rain jacket with two yellow zippers, blue jeans and sneakers. He has a distinctive scar, a large inverted Y, on his chest and abdomen, the result of a liver transplant nine years ago.

*Please note: The reward shall only be payable to any person or persons for relevant and useful information that leads law enforcement to the location and/or return of David Bird. This reward is limited to a $10,000 total in the event of multiple claimants to the reward, and will be disbursed through a representative of the Bird family. Making a false report to law enforcement is a serious offense that may be punishable by law.
