CLAIBORNE PARISH, LA (KSLA) - The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to location of 4-year-old missing from Claiborne Parish.
Rondreiz Cortez "Junior" Phillips disappeared a week ago from outside his home near Lisbon.
Authorities have since questioned a number of people, including his mother and stepfather, and have searched woods and ponds near the residence.
Multiple agencies have joined the Claiborne Parish Sheriff's Office in the search.
In Facebook comments, a few people earlier discussed raising money to offer a reward for information about the child.
Authorities are aware of those discussions and "that may be an option," Claiborne Sheriff Ken Bailey said earlier this week.
The public search for Phillips has been called off.
Authorities urge anyone with any information about the child to:
- Call 911, or,
- Call the Claiborne Parish Sheriff’s Office at (318) 927-2011 or 800-810-2011; or,
- Contact Sgt. Stacey Pearson, of the Louisiana Clearinghouse for Missing and Exploited Children/AMBER, by calling (337) 962-2605 or sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
