DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Police and dozens of volunteers have been searching for a 10-year-old Davenport girl missing since last week and now an Ambert Alert has been issued.
The Amber Alert was put into place early Wednesday morning.
"Per this rule, the five-hour window for the Amber Alert notification system has expired for Breasia Terrell - as it does for all Amber Alert cases - however the search is still underway for her as a missing person. The public is asked to call the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-6125 with any information related to her disappearance," Iowa DPS said.
The Quad-City Times reports that law enforcement officials searched an area along River Drive late Monday night after receiving a tip, but found no sign of 10-year-old Breasia Terrell, who was last seen Friday on East 53rd Street.
Earlier Monday, dozens of volunteers walked through the woods of Davenport’s Credit Island looking for the girl.
Police have also searched the apartment of a 47-year-old convicted sex offender linked to the case in court documents for a separate charge. The man has not been charged in Breasia's disappearance.
