Police search for missing 4 year-old near Charleston

The Charleston Police Department says that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $10,000 reward for "information leading to the recovery" of Heidi Todd, a four-year-old girl who was reported missing on Johns Island Tuesday afternoon.

Interim Chief Jerome Taylor told reporters Wednesday afternoon the girl's mother, who was taken to the hospital, was able to give a brief description of a person who they believe the girl could be with. Heidi's mother was hospitalized on Tuesday, and although police haven't confirmed why, the Missing Pieces Network indicated that there may have been a possible break-in at the home and the mother could have possibly been attacked.

"There are many things that we do not know, yet, that we are still investigating, but there's one thing we know, and that is that Heidi Todd is missing, and we need everyone to be on the lookout for this young lady", Mayor John Tecklenburg said at a noon press briefing.

The mayor said there were four other children living with Todd - two of which were in the house when the girl disappeared - and all are safe. The woman's other two kids were at school.

Police said Heidi might be with a man between 25 and 30 years old who has short hair and is dressed in all gray.

Police, fire, the Coast Guard and rescue teams were called to search the area. He's now at the hospital with the mother.
