On Friday, University of Illinois police announced that Mundo's family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his return.

?We figure that money is a good incentive for anything, so we thought maybe that would make people want to tell us anything,? his older sister Victoria, 27, told the Chicago Tribune.

Mundo is described as 6 feet tall, 140 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a navy down coat, a red backpack and a red Blackhawks hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call the U. of I. police at 217-333-1216 or Champaign police at 217-351-4545. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call 217-373-8477 or text the information along with ?CCTIP? to 274637.
