NAPLES, Fla. (January 10, 2013)--Filmmaker Tyler Perry is offering a $100,000 reward for information in the decade-old case of two men who disappeared after separate encounters with a sheriff's deputy in southwestern Florida.
Perry joined the Rev. Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous of the NAACP at a news conference Thursday in Naples to discuss the missing-person investigations of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos.
Santos and Williams disappeared three months apart in the Naples area in 2003 after crossing paths with Collier County Sheriff's Deputy Steven Calkins.
Calkins was never charged but was fired the next year.
Perry said the media aren’t paying enough attention to missing-person cases involving minorities.
