Update on Endangered Missing Preschooler

Today, law enforcement and search teams are searching an area outside of Senath, Missouri where potential evidence was found. The area, located on County Road 568 in Dunklin County, is approximately two miles southeast of Breeann Rodriguez’s home. There will be no further specifics on the potential evidence.

Investigators are asking for information about a white van, similar to the ones pictured below. A white cargo van was seen in the area just days prior to Breeann disappearing. The full-size, older-model van may or may not have a ladder mounted in the back.

Digital billboards are now displaying Breeann’s picture in the following areas:

Kingshighway and Broadway (Cape Girardeau, MO)
2418 South Caraway (Jonesboro, AR)
2610 E. Highland Drive (Jonesboro, AR)
2412 Stadium Boulevard (Jonesboro, AR)

Breeann disappeared August 6, 2011 (Saturday). She was last seen at approximately noon riding her pink bicycle with training wheels in front of her home on Ode Johnson Street in Senath, located in Missouri’s bootheel. Her bicycle also disappeared. She was wearing a pink top, and pink and purple shorts. Breeann’s pictures can be found on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s website and on the FBI’s Kidnappings and Missing Persons page.

The FBI and the Senath Marshal’s office are offering a combined reward of up to $45,000 for the successful recovery and prosecution of the person(s) responsible for her disappearance, if she was abducted.

The Senath Police Department along with the FBI Task Force, Dunklin County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Kennett Police Department, and the Bootheel Drug Task Force are investigating the case.
