#BreeannRodriguez: Three pieces of potential evidence that could be linked to missing three year old.

Wednesday police announce they've discovered
three pieces of potential evidence that could be linked to missing
3-year-old Breeann Rodriguez.
"They are items of interest," said Chief Omar
Karnes. "We've sent them off to the crime lab for testing. They could
be evidence. Right now we can't say they are linked to Breeann, and we
can't say they aren't."

The items were discovered in an area south of Senath.
Police found a possible physical piece of
evidence around 7 p.m. Tuesday. They found two more possible pieces of
evidence Wednesday morning.

The items were located on County Road 568 in Dunklin County which is approximately two miles southeast of Breeann's home.
The FBI would give no further details on what
they found, but did say crews are searching south of Senath with
helicopters and dog teams.

"It's not clothing and it's not the bike," said Chief Karnes.
Breeann was last seen Saturday while riding

find no trace of Breeann, or her pink bike with training wheels.

FBI and Senath Police are looking for a white
cargo van that was seen in the area just days prior to Breeann
disappearing. The full-size older model van could have a ladder mounted
in the back.

At the time of Breeann's disappearance, she was wearing a pink top, and pink and purple shorts
Chief Karnes says for the first time he feels the case it's going somewhere.
"It appears a trail is forming," said Chief Karnes. "I believe she's alive. I feel like somebody's trying to hide something."
Her parents say they are heartbroken and anxious for their daughter's safety. They also believe Breeann is alive.
"I feel like someone has her and they are
scared to bring her back," said her father, Edgar Rodriguez. "I don't
care. All I want is my daughter."

"We just rely on God and pray," said Claudia, her mother. "I know anytime someone is going to tell me they found her."
The FBI and the Senath police are offering a
combined reward of up to $45,000 for the successful recovery and
prosecution of whoever is responsible for her disappearance, if she was
