Tyler Perry Ups The Ante To Find 2 Missing Florida Men

7th Annual Produced By Conference - Day 2

Hollywood actor and director Tyler Perry has doubled the reward money he's putting up in the search for two missing men in Florida.  

Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos both vanished after being detained separately by Collier County Deputy Steven Calkins.  

Santos disappeared in 2003 and Williams went missing the following year.  Calkins was later fired for not cooperating with investigators, but wasn't charged in the men's disappearance.  

Perry offered a $100,000 reward for information five years ago and Tuesday added another $100,000.  

He says he hopes his presence will bring attention to a case that has largely gone unreported.  Perry says a network reporter once told him that the case wouldn't make national headlines because the victims aren't sympathetic, one is black and the other Hispanic.  The thought being that the only missing people who get national attention are "blue-eyed blonds" or white people in general.
