The FBI and the Madison County’s sheriff’s office are offering a $20,000 reward for information on Myra Lewis, a 2-year-old from Mississippi who disappeared on March 1, the New York Daily News reports.

Lewis was last seen around 11 a.m. on March 1, wearing khaki pants, pink tennis shoes and a turquoise sweater with a bear on the front. She was playing with her sister outside of her family’s home in Camden.

According to the Daily News, the FBI has expanded their search to states that border Mississippi, and authorities are conducting ground and air searches.

In an unrelated twist, Myra’s mother, Ericka Lewis, was arrested for an unrelated probation violation, the Daily News reports.

A Madison County sheriff said that Lewis was on probation for welfare fraud and was charged with being a felon in possession of a concealed weapon.
