KEY POINTS

  • After Arianna went missing, her mother was found buried in a shallow hole
  • No suspects or persons of interest have been named in the case

The San Francisco police have offered a $100,000 reward to anyone with information about the whereabouts of a toddler who went missing more than five years ago.

Arianna Fitts went missing from Oakland, California, in February 2016. The police said Thursday they hope the reward would help them get clues about the disappearance of the child, according to MyNetworkTV-affiliated KRON4

Arianna was last seen with her baby-sitter and her husband, Los Angeles Times reported. 

The police also released a forensic artist’s sketch of what the now 7-year-old girl might look like. Arianna was 2 years old when she went missing. The same year, her mother's body was found buried in a shallow hole in San Francisco’s McLaren Park.

Nicole Fitts, a Best Buy employee and single mother of two daughters, was reported missing on April 5, 2016. She was last seen on April 1 when she received a phone call to go meet her daughter’s baby-sitter, authorities said, KRON4 reported.

The police did not name any suspects or persons of interest in the case.

“The San Francisco Police Department continues to actively investigate this incident and we will continue to investigate this matter as long as it takes. We will pursue all leads, continue to examine all evidence, and seek out all individuals who may have information,” the police said in a statement on Thursday.

"We wanted to speak to everyone who interacted with Nicole leading up to her disappearance. Try to remember every detail you can, no matter how insignificant you think it may be. If you remember something, please contact us even if you previously talked with us."

FBI agents have also been working the case to help locate the missing child. 

Anyone with information on Arianna’s whereabouts has been urged to call the police department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to text a tip to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.
