Authorities are continuing an extensive search for 3-year-old Kamille McKinney Monday morning.

The AMBER Alert for the child has been expanded to include surrounding states.

"I am staying engaged with law enforcement officials on both the state and local levels. While the search for Kamille and the investigation into the case are ongoing, it is imperative that we remain vigilant and report any information that may help law enforcement bring her home." "In that light, we are in discussion with Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Car to finalize plans for my office to offer a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) and the location of Kamille."

Birmingham police say the Sequoia believed to be connected with the kidnapping was towed from the apartment complex. Police released the photos below of the vehicle. Police believe a black male and white female were in the vehicle at the time of the kidnapping.

Police say they have received reports that people in a vehicle may have tried to entice neighborhood children with candy, but have not confirmed those reports.

Kamille was last seen wearing a pink t-shirt with leopard print design and leopard print shorts with no shoes.

“I mean she’s three, man. She’s innocent,” says Kamille’s father. “I just want my baby back at the end of the day like anybody else would.”

Birmingham Police have offered an additional hotline number for people who see Kamille, the suspect vehicle or have other information about the case. That number is (205) 297-8413. In addition anyone one with any information may also call Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777 or 911.
