BOULDER, Colorado (CNN) -- A new newspaper advertisement will be published Sunday promoting a $100,000 reward in the killing of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey -- this one suggesting a possible suspect.

The new ad, to run in the Boulder Daily Camera, asks: "Anyone with information regarding a well-dressed male approaching young children around Christmastime, please call."

Investigators in the case have not publicly suggested they were searching for such a person. Police had no comment on the new ad.

The reward is funded by the JonBenet Ramsey Children's Foundation, the sole contributor of which, CNN has learned, is JonBenet's father, John Ramsey, a multimillionaire entrepreneur. The new wording was not approved by County Crime Stoppers, which had administered a hotline number for tips that might lead to an arrest in the case.
