Family of missing St. Pete man offers increased reward for tips in disappearance

ST. PETERSBURG — The family of a missing 56-year-old St. Petersburg man is offering a reward for new tips in the mysterious case.

Kevin Lawya has not been seen since June 28. Neighbors said they saw him parking his 2009 Toyota Tacoma in the driveway of his Kenwood neighborhood home that evening. The next day, the truck was gone and Lawya didn't show up to his job as a controller for Point Brittany Condominiums. Co-workers later reported him missing.

On July 2, police found Lawya's truck parked in the 800 block of Union Street S, a dead end at a fence bordering Interstate-275. Investigators found signs of foul play inside the truck, police said.

Pinellas County Crime Stoppers announced Wednesday that Lawya's family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his recovery and the successful prosecution of anyone responsible for his disappearance. That is in addition to the $1,000 reward put up by Crime Stoppers.

Anyone with information regarding Lawya's whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 873-8477 or visit crimestoppersofpinellas.org.
