Reward Now Offered In Manhattan Hit and Run

( KNZA )--A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information that leads to the driver that struck a Horton woman with a pickup truck and then fled the scene.

Riley County Police have been searching for the driver since early Friday morning when Amber Wilhelm became a victim of the hit and run while crossing the intersection of 12th and Bluemont, in Manhattan, on foot, around 2:00 Friday morning.

The 21-year-old Kansas State University student remains in critical condition at Topeka’s Stormont-Vail Hospital, and her father wants answers. “[We're] just looking to see if anybody has any information leading up to an arrest, just to help find the person so we can pick up the pieces and move on.”

That video message from Darryl Wilhelm was posted Tuesday to the Riley County Police Department's Facebook page. A second video, from Amber's mother, Donna, was posted a short time later. “We are needing your help to find this person that has done this,” she said in the video. “If you are the person, please come forward. We just want to put the pieces together.”

A GoFundMe account has now been launched to help raise the reward money to find the person who witnesses say was behind the wheel of a light colored 2011 to 2016 Chevy or GMC extended cab pickup.

If the goal of $10,000 is not reached, the family will provide the remainder of the amount if someone provides information that leads to the driver.

Any amount over $10,000 will be used towards Amber's mounting hospital bills.

Anyone with information regarding the case is urged to call the RCPD at 785-537-2112 or use the Manhattan/Riley County Crimestoppers tip line at 785-539-7777.
