Update: Missouri Authorities Arrest Suspect in Disappearance of 3-Year-Old Girl

August 14, 2011

Missouri authorities have a suspect in custody in the disappearance of a 3-year-old girl.

The suspect is from the area and not related to Breeann Rodriguez, Dunklin County Sheriff Bob Holder and Senath Police Chief Omar Karnes said in a statement. He is being held at the Dunklin County Justice Center pending formal charges.

Authorities are searching for the girl’s body and her bicycle in an undisclosed area in Dunklin County.

The arrest comes after investigators found training wheels near the site where Breeann disappeared.

Karnes said one wheel was found Tuesday, the other Wednesday. He told the Kennett Daily Dunklin Democrat that it isn’t certain the training wheels are from the small bike that Breeann Rodriguez was riding in front of her home when she disappeared on Aug. 6. The white and black wheels were sent to a crime lab for analysis.

“We aren’t sure they are hers,” Karnes said. “We can’t rule them out.”

The FBI released a statement saying the girl’s father, Edgar Rodriguez, has seen the training wheels and believes they belong to his daughter, kait8.com reports.

A total of $45,000 in reward money is being offered in the search for the girl. The FBI is offering $25,000, and the Senath Marshal’s office is offering $20,000 in the effort to find her.

The 30-pound girl was wearing a pink top, and pink and purple pants at the time of her disappearance. At least 200 people searched for her over the weekend, joining police from several agencies, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the FBI.

Edgar Rodriguez his daughter as very friendly but said she would never ride her bike away from the street where the family lives.

Editor’s Note:It is so sad and distressing to see this type of crime against women and children.We need to pass laws that are overly harsh to deter the low-lifes that destroy so completely,the lives they infect with their actions.GOD Bless Breeann Rodriguez,her family and friends in this truely devasting time.
