Myra Lewis: FBI offers $20,000 reward for info on missing toddler
The FBI is now offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information regarding the whereabouts of Mississippi toddler Myra Lewis, who went missing earlier this month.
Authorities began searching for the 2-year-old after family members reported her missing on March 1. According to police, she may already have been gone for several hours by the time they reported the disappearance. Now, investigators, who hope the little girl may still be alive, are asking for the public's help to find her.

State, local and federal enforcement agencies have been on a search for the little girl since for a week and half now. An Amber alert for Myra was initially issued on Sunday, the day after she was reported missing. Then last week, her relatives revealed they believed she had been kidnapped. However, authorities are still holding out hope that they will be able to bring back the toddler back home safely.
Ugh, my heart breaks for this little girl and her family. I can't even begin to imagine how devastated and worried they must be about her. Having any child, let alone such a young one, suddenly go missing…it's just every parent's worst nightmare. I pray that this reward will spur anyone with any relevant information to come forward and hopefully, help lead to Myra's safe return.
According to the FBI release, Myra is 37 inches tall and weighs approximately 27 pounds. She was last seen wearing white or khaki-colored pants, a turquoise sweater with a bear on the front, and pink tennis shoes. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (601) 948-5000, or the Madison County Sheriff's Department at (601) 859-2345.
