Missing Child Update

Davenport Police Department

More than a week after she was last seen, there's still no sign of a missing Davenport child. And that's after hundreds of people including local, state, and federal officers plus local residents have gone all out looking for 10 year Breasia Terrell.

During a press briefing Monday afternoon, Police Chief Paul Sikorski said the search in Clinton County, near Low Moor and Camanche, is over, at least for now.

"We believe that we have covered the areas up there and we need to move our efforts  back onto the investigative portion of it. We think that we have searched it, we have researched it - is it possible there could be things up there that we haven't found, yes I think that's possible but we really needed to re-focus our efforts onto the investigation."
Now investigators will focus on pursuing leads, and following up on tips submitted by the public.

He was asked about the mood of Terrell's family.

"As you can imagine there is frustration, there is anger, there's sadness, and there's a want for answers. And I would say probably from an investigative standpoint, we feel many of those same things."

Henry Dinkins

Sikorski again asked the public for help in figuring out where 47 year old Henry Dinkins was from the evening of July 9th to noon the next day. And that anyone with information about him or his vehicles should contact police (563-326-6125).  He's her brother's father, a registered sex offender, and currently in custody for other charges.
