A witness saw a man pull Kamille into a dark Toyota Sequoia SUV on the night she disappeared. Kamille's father, Dominic, said Kamille probably knows the person who took her. He said she would never get in the car with a stranger.

"She's not no little girl that's going to go get in the back. She's not friendly like that," Dominic said.

The FBI has expanded the search for Kamille across state lines into Georgia.

Anyone with information on Kamille's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (205) 254-7777 or contact the FBI's Toll-Free Tipline at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) or the Birmingham Police Department’s South Precinct at 205-254-2793.

There is a $33,000 reward. Callers can remain anonymous.

Birmingham police have released new surveillance video from the night Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney was kidnapped, Al.com reports.

The video shows one man walk by the children without stopping. A second man, who has a distinctive limp, walks by and the children are seen leaving with him.

The video has no sound and police say the timestamp is incorrect. Kamille was abducted between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 12. A witness saw a man pull Kamille into a blue Toyota Sequoia SUV that sped away.

Police later located the vehicle that was owned by one of two persons of interest who were detained in the case.

 

Police say the man with the limp is a suspect in the case. They declined to say if the man is in custody.

"Through our investigation and through statements, we've pretty much been able to identify the children and the second gentleman," Police Chief Patrick Smith said on Friday. "What we're trying to do is close the loop on the third individual in the video who was the first one who walks by as the children are playing."

He added: "We want to see if he has additional information or if he saw something that night that may be critical in this investigation."

A statewide Amber Alert was issued and two suspects were taken into custody. But Police Chief Patrick Smith said precious time was lost because the family delayed reporting her missing for several hours.

Hopes were high on Wednesday when the Jefferson County Sherif's Office reported Kamille was found safe around noon.

Jefferson County Sheriff Mark Pettway said Kamille had been found alive and was being checked by medical personnel, according to WRBI.

But an hour later, Birmingham Police confirmed Kamille was still missing and had not been found, despite the Jefferson Co. Sheriff's confirmation of her location.

Sheriff Mark Pettway told CBS 42's Art Franklin in a phone call that he had received misinformation from one of his deputies in the field.

Two persons of interest are in custody and police located the Toyota Sequoia SUV Kamille was last seen in.

Patrick Devone Stallworth, 39, of Birmingham (pictured left) was charged with multiple counts of child pornography with intent to distribute. He is being held on $500,000 bond. And Derrick Irisha Brown, 29, (pictured right) also of Birmingham, is being held with no bond for an unrelated kidnapping.

Both suspects denied abducting Kamille.

Chief Smith said it is possible Kamille is being moved around to different locations. He addressed the kidnapper directly during a press conference.

"I wanted to reach out to just one individual. If you know where Kamille is... if you have her and you're not sure what to do... I want to give you safe passage," Smith said.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $20,000 reward in addition to the governor's $5,000 reward.
