The NSW Government, together with the NSW Police Force, will announce a $1 million reward for information into the murder of Toni Tiki nearly 30 years ago.

Toni Tiki – then aged 26 – was last seen leaving a New Year’s Eve party at the South Maroubra Surf Life Saving club about 1.30am on Monday 1 January 1996.
