DAVENPORT, Iowa (WQAD) - Monday, the search is underway for a missing 10-year-old girl in the Quad Cities.

Police say Breasia Terrell was last seen Friday morning in the 2700 block E. 53rd Street in Davenport. That is an island on the Mississippi River on the southwest side of Davenport.

The search has now expanded to other areas of the river. A growing group of family, friends and strangers have been searching muddy river banks, rummaging through a junkyard and tracing the riverside.

The search party says they have found evidence and turned it over to investigators, but Terrell’s mother says she can’t shake the feeling this isn’t real.

It’s never gone past 24 hours, and she’s not here,” Aishia Lankford, Breasia’s mother, said. “This is not real. We have so many cars out here. So many detectives out here. And we have not got one, one lead on what’s going on with her.”

Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities is offering a $3,500 dollar reward for information which leads to locating Terrell.

Editor’s note: The Davenport Police Department reported that Breasia Terrell was last seen in the 2700 block of E. 53rd Street in the early hours of July 10, not on Credit Island as was previously reported.
