The Bali family is hoping for a Christmas miracle. An anonymous donor has given them a greater chance of getting the one thing they want this holiday, the return of Mekayla Bali.
With the donation, the reward for information leading to Mekayla’s safe return has increased to a total of $50,000. There is also $10,000 set aside for credible information regarding Mekayla’s whereabouts.
Paula Bali is encouraged by the additional reward money, and hopes that with the donation they are closer to finding her daughter and bringing her back home safely.
“It means hope, and in Mekayla’s case that’s something we’ve been short on, because there has never been any evidence of her being anywhere. We also realize that an additional incentive will help bring someone forward.”
They are focusing their efforts on the Yorkton area because this was the start of the disappearance, so someone in Yorkton on the day Mekayla disappeared would be the most likely person to have any information about what happened to her.
Fighting back tears, Paula admits that Christmas is an especially difficult time of year for her and her family, and that they don’t do traditional things like decorating for Christmas anymore because it’s “just too painful.” They hope that with the increased amount of reward money they will find information in order to get their family together again.
Anyone with information regarding Mekayla’s disappearance is asked to contact Yorkton RCMP or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
