Three months after a toddler from Darlington was killed in a hit and run, police say a reward will be given to anyone who gives them information which leads to the driver's conviction.
Danny Wake died after being struck by a vehicle as he walked home with his mother.
In their first televised interview Danny's family told our correspondent Frances Read that their lives will never be the same again.
Crimestoppers’ North East Regional Manager, Dave Hunter, said: “This is a heartbreaking time for Danny’s family as they continue to try to come to terms with his tragic death. They desperately need to know exactly what happened on that day."
The mother of 3-year-old Danny Wake, who was killed in a hit-and-run in Darlington, has spoken for the first time about the loss of her son. Kayren Winter said she cannot begin to describe the pain and added that it is so much harder not knowing why it happened.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £3,000 for information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of a driver that killed 3-year-old Danny Wake in Darlington.
Police say he was on his way back from a trip with his mother, brother and another child on November 4, when he strayed into the road and was hit by a vehicle. He had been to pick up a catalogue to choose his Christmas presents.
It happened near the junction of Neasham Road and Falmer Road. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop.
