AMBER Alert Canceled in Case of Missing Davenport Child

(Davenport, Iowa) -- There's no longer an active AMBER Alert in the case of a missing Davenport child, but her disappearance remains an active missing persons case. 10 year-old Breasia Terrell disappeared on July 10th, 2020.

Assistant Director of the FBI Field Operations Bureau for the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Mitch Mortvedt says the alert was canceled due to the length of time the case has gone on.

Mortvedt said in a message to KWQC TV6:

“Her investigation has always been a missing person case and classified as such. The circumstances around her missing met the criteria of an Amber Alert in Iowa so that was an additional part of her case. Amber Alerts are issued for the immediacy of the incident at hand. It has been six months and we just canceled the Amber Alert portion of it. It does not change anything about how the case is investigated at all.”

Davenport Police Chief Paul Sikorski says Terrell's disappearance remains an active and ongoing missing persons case, and the community remains committed to finding her.

Davenport Police say convicted sex offender Henry Dinkins remains a person of interest in the case, though he has not been charged in Terrell's disappearance. He's currently in jail for violating his sex offender registry.
