Reward Offer Fails to Get Mengele Clue

United Press International

A full-page newspaper ad soliciting information on the whereabouts of Nazi death camp doctor Josef Mengele failed to turn up a clue despite a $300,000 reward, police said.

The ad placed by the Frankfurt prosecutor's office in the local Augsburger Allgemeine was another in the continuing efforts to hunt down Mengele, known as the Angel of Death for his experiments on inmates at the Auschwitz concentration camp, police said.

Mengele, who would be 74 if still alive, is believed hiding in South America.
