SENATH, MO (KFVS) -

By Holly Brantley

SENATH, MO (KFVS) - It's a case that's grabbing attention across the country as family members and law enforcement search for three year old Breeann Rodriguez of Senath.

She disappeared Saturday along with her pink bike with training wheels.

Her father, Edgar Rodriguez is asking anyone with a four wheeler or able body to help join the search.

"We need all the help we can," Rodriguez said.

He says he spent all of Friday searching.  Meanwhile, Police Chief Omar Karnes tells Heartland News no new potential evidence was discovered Friday.

"We have interviewed several more people who have called with tips," Karnes said.

 They are also working on strategy for a big search this weekend.  "We have to keep going," Karnes added.

This week fire fighters discovered two training wheels south of Senath just off a county road. Karnes says they still are waiting for crime lab results to match them to Breeann's bike. Though Edgar Rodriguez says he believes the wheels belong to his daughter.

Police say they still need information about a white van, but have no persons of interest.

Breeann's father now says he and his wife took polygraph tests earlier this week. He tells Heartland News, authorities indicated they failed those tests.

"I don't think they suspect us though," said Rodriguez. "I just want to find my daughter and bring her back safe."

Chief Karnes says he's not aware of those tests or the results and he says he does not consider Breeann's parents to be suspects. The FBI says they can not comment on polygraph testing.

The FBI and Senath Police want to make child ID kits available. The kits allow parents to finger print their kids as well as keep a DNA sample on hand should their child ever go missing. They will be available between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday at First Assembly Church on South State Street.

If you want to help search, or have a four wheeler you could donate, call Edgar Rodriguez at: 1-203-918-2886.

According to store manager Mackenzie Harmon, donations are also being taken at the Verizon Wireless store in Kennett. They have a donation box set up for cash donations and are also looking for useful items for search crews.
