UPDATE 9/1/14 – Myra Lewis is still missing.
Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker said, “It was reported as a missing child, she was reported as having wandered off. We haven’t been able to corroborate anything except that Myra is still missing. Until we can prove or disprove one theory or another, we’ve still got to consider every possibility. She may have wandered off, she may have been abducted, we just don’t know at this point. We don’t have any physical evidence to lead us in any certain direction other than that.”
UPDATE 3/18/14 – Authorities are hoping that little Myra is still alive, and are offering a $20,000 reward for her return.
UPDATE 3/5/14 – The Madison county Sheriff Dept and FBI are asking the public to call them for any information, no matter how small to help them to find Myra.
For clarification, they also said they did not classify her disappearance as a kidnapping or abduction, because they do not know if she was specifically taken from the house.
Previous: On Monday, an Amber Alert has been activated for a missing 2-year-old from Madison County.
Myra Lewis was last seen on Saturday at her house on Mount Pilgrim Road in Camden, Miss. Myra’s mother told officials that she saw Myra with her sibling outside playing as she was heading out to go to the store around 10:30 a.m. She told them to go inside the house where their father was taking care of an infant. When she returned the other children were there but Myra was missing.
Police believe that the child may have wandered off, but as of early this morning they were treating the case as an abduction according to WLOX news.
“We’ve searched approximately four square miles around this residence and unfortunately have not been able to locate Myra,” said Sheriff Randy Tucker of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities are stating they did not receive a phone call that Myra was missing until 4:00 p.m.
Myra is 3 feet tall and 25 pounds. She was wearing khaki pants, a turquoise sweater with a black bear on the front and pink shoes with glitter.
