SENATH, Mo. (AP) -- Investigators in Southeast Missouri are hopeful that new evidence will help them find 3-year-old Breeann Rodriguez.

The girl was last seen Saturday riding a bike with training wheels in front of her home in Senath. The Kennett Daily Dunklin Democrat reports that authorities aren't disclosing the new evidence, but are now focusing a search south of the town of 1,600 residents about 150 miles south of St. Louis.

Police are also seeking a white van that had been spotted in the area. Town Marshal Omar Karnes says the older model van has no windows and a ladder on the back.

A $45,000 reward is being offered in the case. Breeann's parents have pleaded for her return.
