Reward for missing trucker David Schultz rises to $28,000

The search for missing trucker David Schultz has intensified as the reward for information leading to his whereabouts or to ongoing investigations now totals nearly $28,000.

Big picture: Schultz, a father of 10-year-old twins, was last heard from in the early hours of November 21, 2023. His still-loaded semi was discovered on an Iowa road later that day.

  • The substantial reward, which was initially $2,000, has grown thanks to a unanimous decision by the Sac County Board of Supervisors to allocate $25,000 from the American Rescue Plan Act and additional community contributions.
  • Schultz's personal belongings, including his wallet and phone, were left inside his truck, prompting serious concern for his safety.

Community response: Local residents have been contributing to the reward fund, reflecting the tight-knit nature of the trucking community and concern for one of their own in distress.

Call to action: Anyone with potential leads or information has been urged to contact the Sac County Communications Center or email [email protected]. The search has garnered significant local attention, with hopes that increased funding will lead to new information.

David Schultz's mysterious disappearance remains unresolved, leaving his family and local community anxious for answers. Authorities continue to investigate all possibilities in the quest to find him, reported Sioux City Journal.
