$1 Million Reward for Dorothy's Ruby Slippers

GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. - An anonymous donor has offered a $1 million reward for credible information leading to the pair of Judy Garland's sequined, ruby red slippers stolen from a museum in her Minnesota hometown.

The late actress wore the slippers in \"The Wizard of Oz.\"

The 10-year anniversary of the theft is in August. The reward offer requires the exact location of the slippers and the perpetrator's name.

The slippers were insured for $1 million. John Kelsch, executive director of the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minn., says they could be worth $2 million to $3 million now.

Kelsch says the donor is from Arizona and is a huge fan of Garland and the 1939 movie.

Three other pairs created for the film are known to exist, including one on display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. Another pair was acquired in 2012 for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences' planned museum.

If you have information about the shoes' whereabouts contact the Grand Rapids Minnesota Police Department at (218) 326-3464.
