It is unclear if any specific developments in the investigation prompted police to schedule a news conference.
Earlier Wednesday, authorities in Iowa issued an AMBER Alert for Breasia, indicating that police believe she was kidnapped. Henry Earl Dinkins, the biological father of Breasia’s younger brother, was taken into custody on Friday for a sex offender registry violation. Earlier this week, Davenport police announced that Dinkins is a person of interest in the case but they have not named him a suspect, and it is unclear if investigators suspect any other individuals were involved an a possible abduction.
KWQC will host a live stream of the news conference, which can be viewed at this link.
