Crime Stoppers posts reward for missing girl

The family of Dana Mytty is hoping a reward of up to $1,000 posted Thursday will help in the missing 17-year-old girl’s safe return.Dana’s mother, Helen Mytty, said Crime Stoppers posters with the reward and contact information were posted around Eagle County over the weekend. She has not spoken with her daughter in more than a week.Helen said she received a tip from a volunteer at the United Methodist Church soup kitchen in Glenwood Springs who said she saw Dana and four boys earlier in the week at one of the church’s 5 p.m. free dinners.”It was adults who saw her there,” Helen said from her Missouri Heights home. “I got a call from a lady who said she was there both Monday and Tuesday, but not Wednesday.”The family has not heard any new sightings, tips or information on Dana’s whereabouts since the calls on Wednesday.”We contacted the Glenwood Police and they questioned the guys who people saw her with, but they said they don’t know anything,” Helen Mytty said.News of Dana’s disappearance appeared in local media reports Wednesday, which Helen said could explain why Dana might stay out of the public’s eye. A caregiver for the Myttys’ 29-year-old son Darrick – who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a construction accident eight years ago – has offered her contact number, 625-9206, in case Dana does not want to directly contact her family.”Jaime has offered her name and telephone number as an alternative person Dana or her friends can call if they don’t want to call the family for some reason,” Helen Mytty said. “I just want Dana to know she can call Jaime. She doesn’t have to call us directly if she doesn’t want to.”Anyone with information regarding Dana’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-962-TIPS or 328-7007. Contact April E. Clark: 945-8515, ext.
