CANTON, Miss- Myra Lewis has been missing 40 days now and there’s still no sign of where the little girl is at.
Madison County’s Sheriff Randy Tucker spoke Thursday at a press conference saying, “We’re following leads still at this point. We’ve had a number of tips across the country from 10 or 12 different states, possible sightings, but nothing has come up yet. I’m upset we haven’t been able to find Myra, but we still have reason to believe she’s alive and still want to get her home.”
The last time anyone saw Myra was at her family’s home in Camden March 1. Law enforcement, FBI, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and the Camden Volunteer Fire Department have all been apart of the toddler’s search.
Tucker is asking for the public to continue sending in tips no matter how insignificant you may think they are. Tucker said, “We will follow up every tip we receive. That tip could be the missing piece to bring her home and that’s the ultimate goal here.”
District Attorney Michael Guest said Myra Lewis’s mother, Ericka Lewis, is still in jail for her felony charge of having a firearm while she was on probation.
Guest says that the probation violation came forward during the result of an investigation.
Guest also says in no way is the Sheriff using this charge against her, or trying to gain evidence from her while she is incarcerated.
An award of $20,000 has been offered for any tips in regards to helping find Myra.
