Stewartstown, NH – On Saturday, the FBI announced that a $25,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the whereabouts of missing New Hampshire girl Celina Cass.
“We are still aggressively searching and hoping to bring Celina Cass home,” FBI agent Kieran Ramsey said in a news conference.
According to WMUR, a separate $5,000 reward is being offered by a private citizen.
Several law enforcement agencies from a number of states, including Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont have sent resources to the area to help search for Celina.
Celina, 11, was last seen in her bedroom using her computer on Monday, July 25, 2011. Her family has stated she would not run away from home or leave with a stranger.
The FBI became involved in the search last week for the girl, who’s been described as a shy fifth-grader.

“We are going to stay with this,” New Hampshire State Police Col. Robert Quinn told WMUR. “We’re going to do whatever it takes to locate this lost child.”
No one has been named a person of interest in the case, however, on Thursday, reports surfaced that Celina’s stepfather, Wendell Noyes, has a criminal history and was once committed to a hospital, diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Celina is described as 5’5” and 95 pounds, having brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, a pink pullover, blue shorts and shoes.
Authorities are urging anyone with information about Celina to call New Hampshire State Police at 603-846-3333.
