The St. Louis division of the FBI has joined the effort to locate three-year-old Breeann Rodriguez.
Breeann was last seen Saturday, riding her bicycle in her hometown of Senath in the Missouri Bootheel. Yesterday the FBI offered a $25,000 award for information leading to Breeann's return and the successful prosecution of those responsible for her disappearance if she was abducted. The Senath Marshal's Office has also pledged $20,000, making the total reward $45,000.
