‘There are people who know what happened’: Police ask for more tips as person of interest in Breasia Terrell disappearance faces new charges

Police in Davenport, Iowa, have released a new statement about the disappearance of Breasia Terrell, who has been missing for just over a month.

As KWQC reports, the Davenport Police Department issued a release on Wednesday confirming that authorities are still actively investigating Terrell’s July 10 disappearance.

The announcement came the day before Henry Dinkins, a person of interest in Breasia’s disappearance, was arraigned on three sex offender violations. Dinkins has not been charged in connection to the missing persons investigation.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Dinkins is the father of Breasia’s younger stepbrother, and the 10-year-old had gone to Dinkins’ home with her stepbrother the night before she was reported missing.

“Henry Dinkins remains in custody on unrelated charges at this time,” Davenport Police Chief Paul Sikorski said in the news release.

“There are people who know what happened to Breasia, and I urge them to come forward with any information to help law enforcement locate Breasia.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Davenport Police at (563) 326-6126 or email missingchild@davenportiowa.com.

On Thursday, prosecutors added two additional sex offender registry violations to the charges against Dinkins, who is accused of failing to report a new residence and failing to inform the Scott County Sheriff’s office of two vehicles registered to his name.

Dinkins pleaded not guilty to all three charges and is expected back in court on August 28.
