Suspect charged with murder in child's disappearance

A 43-year-old Missouri man has been charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance of a 3-year-old girl last seen a week ago riding her bicycle.

Authorities were searching Saturday for Breeann Rodriguez's body and bicycle in an undisclosed area in Dunklin County, the Senath Police Department and Dunklin County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

A $45,000 reward - $25,000 from the FBI and $20,000 from the Senath Marshal's office - has been offered for information leading to Breeann's recovery and the prosecution of those responsible.

    Three years old?
    It's hard to believe that anybody could commit that crime, but it happened.

    No body or bike yet? How have they charged anyone with anything?

    As usual not enough info if info correct. If they had charged anyone the name would be listed. Sounds like he's a prime suspect.

    "...has been charged with first-degree murder."
    That's pretty clear to me.
    Maybe the copy was altered after some posts appeared.

      It said that before, just nothing as to why they think he did it.. Did he confess, was he the last to see her, what?

      Based on the info given, they could charge anyone..

    Maybe due to proof not discussed in the post, the man was arrested! He may have been the last person seen with the child, had a piece of clothing or toy that he could never have had if he didn't have something to do with it! I'm just speculating! I feel so sorry for this little baby's family, so lucky that nothing like this has happened to any of the kids I've known in my life! Give your kids an extra hug tonite, keep them close & don't let them out of your sight! Predators live even in Small Town, USA !!

    I hope they got the right demonic culprit. Who ever harmed this defenseless 3 year old victim, SHOULD DIE. Oh but wait, some states don't believe in the death penalty. Well, shelter him and feed him. Let him out in 15 years for good behavior and over crowded prisons. SICK LAWS!!!!!
