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.
"We cannot begin to describe how difficult and painful the last three months have been for our family. Our lives changed forever on the 4th November last year when our beautiful little boy Danny was taken from us. What has made it so much harder is not knowing why this has happened. Three months later we still need answers to the questions we have. If anyone knows anything about what happened to Danny that day then please contact Crimestoppers."

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.
Thousands of lanterns will be released in Darlington this evening in memory of Danny Wake. The three year old died last Monday when he was hit by a car as he walked with his mother and brother. Police are still trying to trace the driver.
Officers investigating a hit and run in which a toddler died say the driver of the vehicle involved could live outside the North East. Three year old Danny Wake was killed in Darlington on Monday.
He'd been walking along Neasham Road with his mother and brother. Since then police have been trying to trace the driver. Police say it's possible the vehicle could have been a delivery van. Inspector Neil Fuller is from Durham Police:
