As of March 22, 2014, there isn’t much change in the search for missing Mississippi two-year-old Myra Lewis. Myra was last seen at her Mount Pilgrim Road home in Madison County on March 1, 2014, and since then, authorities have launched an extensive ground and water search for the child. The FBI has established a $20,000 reward for anyone with information leading to Myra Lewis and the case is still high profile in the Mississippi region. An active Amber Alert remains for Myra although there is no suspect or vehicle description reported in the case.

Those with information on the case or who would like to report a tip may do so at the FBI Jackson, Mississippi office at 1-601-948-5000. Please call 911 in an emergency situation.

During the investigation, authorities discovered an unregistered firearm at the home of Myra Lewis’ mother, Ericka Lewis. Ericka Lewis was currently on probation and the weapon violated her terms. She was taken into custody and remains in jail. She is scheduled for a court hearing on March 24, 2014. Ericka Lewis arrest is not directly related to her daughter’s disappearance.

On March 10, 2014, the FBI Jackson, Mississippi branch issued a press release regarding the reward. It is posted below in its entirety.

“Myra was reported missing by her family on Saturday, March 1, 2014. According to family members, she was last seen between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m., playing with her sister outside her home on Mt. Pilgrim Road in Camden, Mississippi.

“Since her disappearance was reported, multiple state, local and federal law enforcement agencies have participated in a massive, collaborative search effort. Significant resources have been dedicated to this investigation, including extensive ground and air searches and utilization of specially trained search teams.

“We are confident that information will be uncovered which will lead to Myra’s return, and we continue to solicit the public’s assistance in locating this little girl,” stated FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen.

“Myra is 37 inches tall and weighs approximately 27 pounds. She was last seen wearing white or khaki-colored pants, a turquoise sweater with a bear on the front, and pink tennis shoes.

“Anyone with information concerning the disappearance of Myra Lewis is encouraged to call the FBI at (601) 948-5000, or the Madison County Sheriff’s Department at (601) 859-2345.”
