DANVENPORT, Iowa (CBS Newspath) - On Wednesday, the FBI raised to $10,000 the reward for information related to the disappearance of a 10-year-old Iowa girl who went missing earlier this month.
Kristi Johnson, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s office in Omaha, said that agents from around the country were searching for 10-year-old Breasia Terrell of Davenport.
Terrell was reported missing July 10, after going to spend the previous night at an apartment with her half-brother and his father, 47-year-old Henry Dinkins.
Investigators have called Dinkins a person of interest, and Davenport Police Chief Paul Sikorski said Wednesday that he remained the “main focus” of the investigation.
Dinkins is a registered sex offender stemming from a 1990 sexual abuse conviction when he was 17. He has been jailed without bond on a complaint alleging he violated the terms of his parole by failing to report the apartment address to authorities and having contact with minors.
