According to investigators, the girl was kidnapped from Bridgeton City Park back on Sept. 16.

The only lead authorities have shared so far is a sketch of a person who they want to talk to. It was initially believed that he may have abducted the girl, but officials have now said that he may be a witness and they want to speak with him.

Law enforcement officials are offering a $52,000 reward for information that helps find the missing child. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Bridgeton Police Department at 856-451-0033 or the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI. Select option 4, then select option 8.
