The mother of missing 5-year-old Bridgeton girl Dulce Maria Alavez was interviewed by Dr. Phil, and will appear on the Nov. 21 episode of Dr. Phil TV show, a family spokesperson confirmed to NJ.com.
The news comes after family, friends and supporters gathered for a vigil Saturday evening. The day marked two months since Alavez went missing.
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.
