10-year-old Breasia Terrell went missing on July 10, 2020. Since then, it has been nearly a month and she hasn’t been found yet. Regarding the investigation, her mother Aishia Lankford has said that she is fully cooperating with the police to bring her daughter home.
According to Lankford, she is doing everything in her power. However, Davenport Police hasn’t been able to deliver a concrete result/update in the last two weeks. On July 22, a press conference was held. When a journalist asked Chief Paul Sikorski about the same, Sikorski paused for a few seconds and cast doubt on the cooperation of some members of Breasia’s family.
“We’re definitely focusing on family and definitely interviewing family members. I think the cooperation level, that is something that may come out later on,” Chief Sikorski said.
When Lankford was asked about that moment on Wednesday, she said: “At that exact moment? We took it as, who the hell are you talking to?” Lankford said. “Because we have been cooperative. We have been listening.”
As per Lankford, she even called the Davenport Police over the phone to analyze last month. Later on, she came to believe that Chief Sikorski was referring to the family of Henry Dinkins. He has been named as a person of interest in the disappearance of Breasia Terrell. Dinkins has been in custody at the Scott County Jail on unrelated charges.
“Henry. Henry`s mother. His girlfriend. His sister. You know those are the ones that are constantly going downtown trying to get his belongings, instead of trying to help me get into their brother’s head,” Lankford said.
Since Breasia Terrell went missing, Lankford and her family members have been searching on their own by hitting the roads with their Breemobiles – the vehicles with Breasia’s photo and packed with missing person’s posters.
“We know that we may be the ones that may be able to break the case just by getting her pictures out there, getting them on anybody’s hand that’s willing to take a flyer,” Lankford said.
Breasia’s family owns two vehicles – a Chrysler 300 and a red Ford Escape. Davenport Police have not held a formal press conference on the status of their investigation for two weeks. Breasia Terrell hasn’t been found yet – neither dead nor alive.
