Authorities in New Hampshire on Saturday vowed to find out what happened to a missing 11-year-old girl as the FBI offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in her disappearance.
"We are still aggressively, aggressively searching and hoping to bring Celina Cass home," FBI Supervisory Special Agent Kieran Ramsay said Saturday.
Officials said a private citizen is also offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Celina Cass' return.
This week, about 100 investigators -- including FBI agents, New Hampshire and Vermont state police, local authorities and employees of the state's Fish and Game Department -- went door-to-door in the small, tight-knit town of West Stewartstown, Ramsey has said.
New Hampshire Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young has said authorities have received about scores of tips, and are checking each one. Help has come from as far as Virginia -- including from FBI headquarters in Quantico -- Pennsylvania and New York, she added.
"We are going to stay with this to locate this lost child," New Hampshire State Police Col. Robert Quinn told reporters Saturday.
Celina was last seen in her room, at her computer, at about 9 p.m. Monday night, according to police.
CNN affiliate WMUR reported that her parents told authorities the girl was gone when they went to wake her up Tuesday morning.
Authorities have offered few further details on the case and an Amber Alert has not been issued.
Young said that investigators are looking at computer and phone records, trying to find clues.
Celina's disappearance has rattled many in West Stewartstown, a town along the border with Vermont and Canada with a population of about 1,000 people, according to the state of New Hampshire.
Friends and relatives have spent much of the past few days putting up posters and doing what they can to find the girl.
Friends have set up a Facebook page, "Missing Celina Cass," with one of the fliers serving as a profile picture.
According to the flier, Celina is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 95 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, pink pullover and blue shorts.
