Family of missing student Jack O’Sullivan offer £20k reward for information to aid the search

Jack was last seen in Hotwells, Bristol over 100 days ago after leaving a house party

Jack’s family have set up a £20,000 reward for information that leads to him being found in order to “help spark new leads and reignite the search efforts” Bristol 24/7 reports.

Jack O’Sullivan has not been seen since 2nd March after he left a house party in Bristol. Despite extensive searches, he has not been found.

This comes after the family lodged a formal complaint against Avon and Somerset police for mishandling the case of their son’s disappearance and missing crucial CCTV footage.

The family raised this money using a GoFundMe page, if unclaimed the money will be donated to the charity “Missing People” or donors can ask for it to be returned. The fundraiser has since reached £26,605, the extra will be used to publicise the reward and cover any additional costs in the search.

The GoFundMe page states “Despite the efforts of the authorities, the investigation has hit a standstill, leaving his family desperate for answers,”

Jack’s parents, Catherine and Alan, and his older brother Ben have decided that a £20,000 reward for information leading to the discovery of Jack is needed to help spark new leads and reignite the search efforts.”

They need your help to achieve this… Every donation, big or small, may help bring them closer to bringing Jack home.”

Since exceeding the fundraising target, the GoFundMe page posted an update stating:

“There has been a remarkable response from friends, family and many others such that the target of £20,000 has been exceeded… words can not express how much this means. For many people, we are hearing that they want to be able to support and help and money is the only way they can practically do that.”
As a result, we feel it is appropriate to keep the fundraising open… but the use of it will now change. Any money subsequently donated will now be used to help publicise the reward and contribute to any costs associated in the search for Jack.”
