#LisaIrwin #AliayahLunsford - Image Of A Bruised Aliayah - Reported To Be The Last Photo !

Two new posters were released Monday in regards to missing 3-year-old Aliayah Lunsford. Both the FBI and the West Virginia Fusion Center released new flyers about Aliayah, whom they're calling missing and endangered.

"It's important to note that there are two. The West Virginia Fusion Cell took responsibility for releasing the first one, the FBI took responsibility for releasing the other one and they're freely available for the public to take a look at and we've also made copies and more copies are available if people want to distribute them," says FBI Special Agent Jeff Killeen.

The picture on the Fusion Center's flyer was supposedly taken just days before Aliayah was reported missing.

In it, you can see a bruise on the left side of her face. There's no word on where this bruise originated.

"I don't know the origin of any of the marks on the child. I wouldn't want to comment on that. That could be from a number of different sources. I do not know," says Jeff Killeen.

Killeen says the FBI was given this picture by a member of Aliayah's extended family with the approval to release to the public.  As far as investigators know, this is the most recent picture taken of the little girl.

"We're continuing our efforts just to find the child and we believe that having a new picture out here, the most recent picture that we know of of the child before she went missing, may spur someone's memory as to where this child was or maybe her movements right before she went missing," Killeen says.

The FBI is still offering a $20,000 reward for anyone who leads investigators to her whereabouts. You can call the Fusion Center with this information at 1-866-WVWATCH or 304-558-6592.

Agents say independent groups may still search for the little girl.
