THE FBI is offering a $20,000 reward in the case of missing 3-year-old Aliayah Lunsford who was likely kidnapped from her West Virginia home more than a month ago. Investigators now believe foul play is involved in the case. FBI spokesman Jeff Killeen said he thought the time for the reward was right and is hopeful hunting season will help turn up clues. According to local reports: the FBI plans to release updated pictures of Aliayah in the next week. Investigators are still following up on leads and tips from the community and do not plan to scale down the search at all.  They recently wrapped up a search in the Vadis area of Lewis County, and that search helped them rule certain things out.
During a press conference, Killeen did squash the rumor that Aliayah has been
sold and explained the lack of information. He said: "We have to collect evidence.  We have to bring enough evidence to convict
somebody of a crime beyond reasonable doubt" said Special Agent Jeff Killeen.  "If we would divulge that kind of information prematurely, that may jeopardize a criminal case.  I apologize that we cannot be more fourth coming with the facts that we have, but nonetheless we've made considerable progress thus far."
