THE FBI HAS OFFERED A $20,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION THAT HELPS THEM FIND A 2-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO DISAPPEARED 10 DAYS AGO AND IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN KIDNAPPED.

MYRA LEWIS VANISHED ON MARCH 1 AFTER PLAYING WITH HER SISTER OUTSIDE THE FAMILY’S CAMDEN, MISSISSIPPI HOME.

HER MOTHER ERICKA LEWIS WAS ARRESTED LAST WEEK FOR A PROBATION VIOLATION BECAUSE POLICE FOUND THAT SHE WAS IN POSSESSION OF A FIREARM.

THE ARREST IS REPORTEDLY BEING CONSIDERED AS UNRELATED TO HER DAUGHTER’S DISAPPEARANCE, BUT ERICKA’S MOTHER SAYS THAT THE ARREST IS SERVING AS AN UNNECESSARY DISTRACTION.

‘THEY SHOULD HAVE WAITED BECAUSE THAT EVEN TOOK THEIR MIND OFF MYRA FOR A MOMENT,’ MYRA’S GRANDMOTHER MARTHA SAMDERS SAID.

‘THEY CAN PRESSURE ERICA, BUT SHE’LL NEVER GIVE IN. SHE’LL NEVER GIVE IN BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING.’

THE MISSING GIRL’S FATHER GREGORY LEWIS TOLD LOCAL STATION WJTV THAT BOTH HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE TAKEN POLYGRAPH TESTS AS WELL AS OTHER MEMBERS OF THEIR FAMILY.

MADISON COUNTY SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER SAID THAT THE RELATIVES HAVE BEEN FULLY COOPERATIVE AND HAVE TURNED OVER THEIR SUV FOR INSPECTION AS WELL AS A NUMBER OF UNDISCLOSED ITEMS FROM THEIR HOME.

‘AT FAR AS WHAT WAS IN THE BAGS, OBVIOUSLY WE’LL START WHERE THE CHILD WAS LAST SEEN AND WE HAVE EVIDENCE RESPONSE FOLKS WHO ARE GOING TO THAT LOCATION AND RECOVERING EVIDENCE AND ALL OF THIS IS A COLLECTIVE EFFORT TO DISCOVER WHERE LITTLE MYRA IS,’ FBI SPECIAL AGENT DAN MCMULLEN TOLD CBS. 

‘I’M NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING SPECIFIC WITH REGARD TO THE INVESTIGATION.’

SHERIFF TUCKER DID TELL WJTV THAT ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE SUV IS BEING CHECKED OUT IS IN CASE THE TODDLER WAS RUN OVER BY THE VEHICLE.

MYRA DISAPPEARED BETWEEN 10.30AM AND 11AM ON SATURDAY MARCH 1 BUT THE FAMILY DID NOT REPORT IT TO AUTHORITIES UNTIL ABOUT 4PM BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY DID AN INITIAL SEARCH THEMSELVES. AN AMBER ALERT WAS ISSUED ON SUNDAY MARCH 2.

‘SINCE HER DISAPPEARANCE WAS REPORTED, MULTIPLE STATE, LOCAL, AND FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES HAVE PARTICIPATED IN A MASSIVE, COLLABORATIVE SEARCH EFFORT,’ THE JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI FBI OFFICE SAID IN A STATEMENT.

‘SIGNIFICANT RESOURCES HAVE BEEN DEDICATED TO THIS INVESTIGATION, INCLUDING EXTENSIVE GROUND AND AIR SEARCHES, AND UTILIZATION OF SPECIALLY TRAINED SEARCH TEAMS.’

LOCAL AND FEDERAL AUTHORITIES HAVE SEARCHED 4-SQUARE-MILES SURROUNDING THE FAMILY’S HOME WITH THE HELP OF 300 OFFICERS AND VOLUNTEERS AS WELL AS SEARCH DOGS.

IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT SHE HAS BEEN MISSING FOR 10 DAYS AT THIS POINT, THEY STILL REMAIN CONFIDENT THAT SHE IS ALIVE, CITING A KIDNAPPING AS THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO.

‘WE FULLY EXPECT A POSITIVE OUTCOME,’ SHERIFF TUCKER SAID.

‘WE NEED TO GET MYRA HOME, AND AGAIN WE WANT TO STRESS TO EVERYONE WE NEED YOUR HELP, THE FAMILY NEEDS YOUR HELP AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR CALLS.’

MADISON COUNTY, MS (MISSISSIPPI NEWS NOW) –

WE ARE BEING TOLD THAT THE MISSING MADISON COUNTY TODDLER CASE IS NOW BEING TREATED AS AN ABDUCTION.

ON SUNDAY EVENING THE MISSISSIPPI HIGHWAY PATROL ISSUED AN AMBER ALERT FOR TWO-YEAR-OLD MYRA LEWIS OF CAMDEN.

MULTIPLE AGENCIES WERE SEARCHING FOR THE MISSING 2-YEAR-OLD, WHO WAS LAST SEEN SATURDAY MORNING.

METRO ONE WAS ALSO ASSISTING IN THE SEARCH FOR THE MISSING TODDLER ON SUNDAY.

THE SEARCH WAS CALLED OFF MONDAY AFTER THE CASE CLASSIFICATION CHANGED.

MADISON COUNTY SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER MET WITH MEMBERS OF THE FBI MONDAY.

MYRA LEWIS WAS LAST SEEN AT HER PARENTS’ HOME ON MOUNT PILGRIM ROAD IN CAMDEN SATURDAY MORNING.

“PARENTS STATED THEY LAST SAW THE TWO YEAR OLD AROUND 10 AM YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) MORNING THERE WERE SEVERAL KIDS THERE. THE FATHER WAS WATCHING AN INFANT CHILD INSIDE THE OTHER CHILDREN WENT OUTSIDE TO PLAY AND THE TWO YEAR OLD WANDERED OFF,” SAID SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER, MADISON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE. “WE’VE SEARCHED APPROXIMATELY FOUR SQUARE MILES AROUND THIS RESIDENCE AND UNFORTUNATELY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE MYRA.”

SUNDAY MORNING EMERGENCY CREWS CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR HER IN A RURAL AREA ALONG MOUNT PILGRIM ROAD, WHERE THE FAMILY LIVES.

MADISON COUNTY SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER SAID THE TODDLER WENT MISSING AROUND 10 A.M. SATURDAY, BUT HIS OFFICE DIDN’T RECEIVE A PHONE CALL UNTIL 4 O’CLOCK SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

THAT’S WHEN SEVERAL POLICE AGENCIES VOLUNTEERS, AND RESCUE CREWS STARTED THEIR SEARCH.  EVEN LOCAL VOLUNTEERS PITCHED IN.

“I THOUGHT ABOUT MY BABY AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN MY BABY AND IT’S SO SAD SHE ONLY 2 YEARS OLD AND IT JUST DEEPENS MY HEART BECAUSE IT COULD HAVE BEEN MY CHILD HE’S 2,” SAID CASSANDRA BACON, A LOCAL VOLUNTEER.

THE FAMILY WAS TOO DEVASTATED TO GO ON CAMERA SUNDAY NIGHT, BUT MYRA’S MOTHER DID TALK TO US OVER THE PHONE.

“I WAS LEAVING TO GO GROCERY SHOPPING AND I SAW HER WALK BACK INTO THE HOUSE WITH HER SISTER,” SAID ERICKA LEWIS, MOTHER OF THE TODDLER.

LEWIS SAID THE CHILD’S FATHER WAS INSIDE THE HOUSE.

LEWIS DESCRIBED THE TODDLER AS 34″ TALL AND WEIGHS ABOUT 25 POUNDS.

LEWIS SAID THE LITTLE GIRL WAS LAST SEEN WEARING A TURQUOISE SWEATER WITH A BLACK BEAR ON THE FRONT AND KHAKI PANTS WITH PINK SHINY SHOES (TENNIS) WITH GLITTER ON THEM.

LEWIS SAID SOMETIMES LITTLE MYRA SUCKS HER THUMB UPSIDE DOWN.

“WE’VE GOT APPROXIMATELY 70 INDIVIDUALS IN THE WOODS HERE RIGHT NOW LIKE I SAID WE HAD ABOUT 250 LAST NIGHT SO WE’VE HAD THE AVERAGE JOE CITIZEN, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN COME OUT. ANYTIME THERE’S AN INFANT INVOLVED ESPECIALLY ONE OF THIS AGE YOU KIND OF PULL AT THE HEART STRINGS OF THE COMMUNITY SO WE GOT THE HELP,” SAID SHERIFF TUCKER. 

“WE JUST WANT HER BACK HOME. WE WON’T WORRY ABOUT PRESSING CHARGES, WE JUST WANT HER BACK HOME SAFE,” SAID LEWIS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON MYRA’S WHEREABOUTS, PLEASE CALL 855-642-5378.
