North Las Vegas Police are asking anyone who has seen 2-1/2-year-old Everlyse Cabrera anytime after May 15th, to call them. They want to know when was the last time someone saw the child alive and well.
Police say the foster family who was caring for the girl is not cooperating with the investigation.
A massive search involving more than 150 volunteers took place over the weekend after the foster family reported the child missing.
Nevada Child Seekers took part in the search for Everlyse and they are ready to spring into action, if police need them.
Elaine Sinnock, with the organization, said, "They tell us where to go, they assign us an area, and they tell us what they would like us to do -- knock on doors, show them the flyer, ask have they seen the child, do they have any information on the child, would they keep their eyes open and call police if they see anything."
Also joining forces with North Las Vegas Police is the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Their Alpha Team is arriving Tuesday and will also focus their resources on finding Everlyse.
Days of intense searching has failed to turn up the missing toddler girl. The two-and-a-half-year-old disappeared early Saturday morning from the home of her foster parents.
The girl's name is Everlyse Cabrera. She is Hispanic, with dark hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink t-shirt, pink shorts and no shoes.
Police say the girl was last seen in her bed at 1 a.m. Saturday morning in the 6500 block of Diamond Point Court in North Las Vegas near Centennial Parkway and Clayton Street. Her foster parents discovered her missing when they went to check on her at 8 a.m.
Police and about 150 volunteers conducted an intense search of the neighborhood over the weekend. They are now asking the public for assistance in this search. Right now, all the police have to work with are theories.
"That the girl may have moved this little stool or chair over to the door, stood on it, unlocked the deadbolt on the door, moved the chair, opened the door and went out," said Cap. Tony Scott, North Las Vegas Police.
The girl's natural parents live in El Monte, California and are in Las Vegas for the search. On Sunday, they sent out an emotional plea for the safe return of their daughter. "We don't care who you are. We don't need to know anything except that she's somewhere and that hopefully she's okay," said Marlene Olivas, Everlyse's mother.
Everlyse and her 11-month-old brother were removed from the biological parent's home and put with the foster family two months ago.
Police did talk to every registered sex offender in the area about this case, but say there are no leads.
Police say there is no evidence of an abduction.
