BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. -- The family of a missing Lafayette man is hoping a dramatic increase in their reward might help them find their son.

The family is offering a $100,000 reward for information on his whereabouts.

Ryder Johnson, 20, left work at Eldora Mountain Resort on Jan. 17 around 3 p.m. His car was found not too far away later that night at Gross Reservoir, but Johnson has not been found.

Despite weeks of searching the area, no other signs of Johnson have turned up.

Investigators have used drones, boats and K-9s, but have turned up with nothing.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has not ruled out foul play, but some believe Johnson decided to take off on his own.

The $100,000 reward is being funded by the family and private donations. There is a deadline of Jan. 17, the one-year anniversary of Johnson’s disappearance.
