NEGRIL, Jamaica -- Sandals Resorts said it will double the reward
for information leading to the return of missing travel writer

police]. We hope the larger reward will generate more calls and

Kirschhoch, 29, an editor for Frommer's Travel Guides in New
York, arrived in Jamaica on May 24 and was supposed to fly home to
New York on June 1 but never did.
