The reward for information leading to the capture of Thomas Smith is now $5,000.
Emporium Borough Police say, along with the $2,000 being offered by PA Crime Stoppers, two private citizens have added another $3,000.
The 58-year-old Cameron County man is accused of kidnapping a woman at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon. She was able to escape, but the search for Smith has been on since then.
Police say they did receive a report Sunday night saying someone saw Smith in the area of Route 120 between Emporium and St. Marys, but the person was not Smith after all.
Mountain Rescue also searched in the Whittimore Hill area on Sunday.
Police remind people that Smith is considered armed and dangerous, and that anyone helping him elude police may also face felony charges.
