Reward upped to $11K in Armstrong case

From staff reports

---- — David Armstrong, the father of Kelly Armstrong, who went missing in 2011, is not giving up in his efforts to find his daughter’s body.

In hopes of finding her body, Armstrong has upped his reward from $5,000 to $11,000 for information about his daughter’s disappearance.

Family members of Kelly Armstrong reported her missing Sept. 26, 2011. She had not been seen since June.

Since her disappearance, Kokomo police arrested Kelly’s boyfriend, Travis Funke, after the man admitted to killing Kelly Armstrong. Funke pleaded guilty in February and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Funke told police he killed Kelly Armstrong and dumped her body in a landfill in Wabash County.

Police searched the landfill for six days, but did not find the body.

David Armstrong feels someone knows more about the case and is hoping they will come forward.

Anyone with information should call David Armstrong at 574-398-8035.
