The appeal was made on the BBC’s Crimewatch programme and resulted in 10 calls from people with information.
Rewards of up to �50,000 were offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
The reward was to be made up of �20,000 from Cambridgeshire police, �20,000 from Mr Thomas’ family and �10,000 from Crimestoppers.
Mr Thomas’ son, Richard, 50, had also issued an emotional plea for information from the public.
He said: “Whoever is close to these people should see, what their son, their daughter, their brother, their friend, has done, because they may have done it before, they may do it again and if neither of those is true then they just need to see what they have done to one gentle old boy.”
