Anonymous donor offer $10,000 reward for return of Marc Bookal

NEWBURGH – A local person who wants to stay anonymous has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the location of Marc Bookal, the 4-year-old who went missing last Monday.

Newburgh City Police Chief Eric Paolilli Saturday said another possible donor has stepped forward with a reward. The terms of that have not been confirmed.

Paolilli asked for the public’s assistance in looking for clues and information, especially around their own homes.

“People know their property, people know their basements, people know the common hallways, people know their area better than the police department will ever know their area,” he said. “So, we ask them if they see anything that doesn’t belong there, by all means, give us a call.”

That number is 845-561-3131.

The search effort Saturday included four K-9 units and a State Police helicopter. Searchers continued to look at the Benkard Avenue area when the child lived, as well as along the Hudson River and the Quassaick Creek.
