“There are people out there who know who was in the white Range Rover that night. You are protecting someone who has committed a terrible crime and needs to be brought to justice. Please think of Alex’s family and friends who deserve to know what happened to him.
“We are hoping this significant reward, put up by Crimestoppers, will encourage people to come forward. It is 100% anonymous.
