CAMDEN, Miss. - The search for a 2-year-old reported missing 10 days ago is expanding outside of the child's home state and now carries a reward for anyone with information about the disappearance, reports CBS affiliate WREG.

The station reports that the FBI is now looking for Myra Lewis in the states neighboring Mississippi. The toddler was last seen playing with her little sister outside their Camden, Miss. home on the morning of Saturday, March 1.

"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," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen. The FBI also said they are offering a $20,000 reward to anyone with information about Myra's whereabouts, according to Madison County, Miss. Sheriff Randy Tucker.

Myra is three feet tall, weighs about 27 pounds and was last seen wearing white or khaki-colored pants, a turquoise sweater with a bear on the front and pink tennis shoes.

"Obviously we believe there is someone out there with information on where Myra is," said Tucker.

WREG reports that the FBI's expanded search is an attempt to further spread the news about the missing little girl in the hope that someone will turn up with new information.

Anyone with knowledge that could be useful to the case should call the FBI at (601) 948-5000 or the Madison County Sheriff's Department at (601) 859-2345.
