The Lakeville Public Safety Foundation is offering a $2500 reward for information leading to the location and safe return of two missing sisters from Lakeville, Samantha and Gianna Rucki. Both sisters disappeared on April 19, 2013, when they ran away from their home in Lakeville during a custody dispute between their parents.

The $2500 reward from the Lakeville Public Safety Foundations is also for "information leading to the apprehension, arrest and conviction of the person or persons criminally responsible for their disappearance."

The mother of Samantha and Gianni, Sandra Grazzing-Rucki, is considered a "person of interest" by Lakeville police involving the disappearance of her two missing teenage daughters.  Samantha and Gianna's father, David Rucki, was awarded custody of all five of his children in November 2013. 

David Rucki said tonight he was "very thankful and appreciate" to the Lakeville Public Safety Foundation and he hopes "this will help bring my daughters back home very soon."

Lakeville Public Safety Foundation President Shanen Corlett told SunThisweek the board's decision to offer a reward was "unanimous." Anyone with information about the missing sisters should call the Lakeville police department at (952) 322-2323.
