BRISTOL, Tenn. — A Bristol man is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the safe return of 5-year-old Summer Wells.
Trevor Lee, 19, said when he heard Summer was missing, he knew he needed to help.
"This is money that I've had saved for a while, and I felt compelled," he said. "There's no other direction I wanted this money to go."
Lee is also the founder of The Gabby Foundation, which raises awareness for child abuse. It is named after a 17-year-old girl who was shot to death in Bristol. Records said that she experienced years of abuse before the shooting.
“I’ve always worked with kids,” he said. “I’ve always had a strong heart for children's safety and voices for children because too often kids don’t have a voice.”
Lee said he plans to work with authorities to help distribute the funds.
