An Amber Alert for 10-year-old Breasia Terrell, who went missing Friday, July 10, expired after five hours.

DAVENPORT, Iowa — The State of Iowa issued an Amber Alert overnight for 10-year-old Breasia Terrell of Davenport. 

While that alert has since expired, she is still missing.

Breasia Terrell was reported missing Friday, July 10. Investigators believe 47-year-old Henry Earl Dinkins kidnapped Terrell and is currently in the Scott County Jail on a sex offender registry violation charge.

She is 4′5″ and weighing 75 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing an oversized white t-shirt, shorts and pink or white flip-flops.

Anyone with information on where Breasia is should call the Davenport Police Department at 563-388-3661. 

In a release, the Iowa Department of Public Safety says they issued the Amber Alert "immediately upon request from the Davenport Police Department."

The notification expired after five hours according to policy, but the search for Bresia is "still underway", Iowa DPS said.

NOTE: The Iowa Department of Transportation mistakenly posted a cancellation of the Amber Alert at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
