The Nova Scotia government has increased the reward it's offering to help solve the case of a teenager who went missing in the Halifax area two years ago.

Devon Sinclair Marsman was 16 years old when he disappeared in February 2022.

In a news release on Thursday, the province described Marsman as an African Nova Scotian youth who is about five feet tall and weighs about 100 pounds.

His case was added to the province's major crimes reward program nine months after he disappeared.

The program offers a reward of up to $150,000 for information that would help solve the case. But in Marsman's case, the province has added $100,000 to the reward, bringing the total to $250,000.

In the release, Justice Minister Brad Johns said he hopes the extra money will encourage those with information related to the case to come forward. The release also said investigators believe there are people with information who could help locate Marsman.

This is the second time the province has increased a reward in the program. The first was in August 2022, when the reward was hiked to $250,000 in the case of Lee'Marion Cain, an eight-year-old boy was killed in a drive-by shooting in Dartmouth in December 2021.
