The holidays have come and gone but there's still no sign of Dulce Maria Alavez.
The 5-year-old from Bridgeton, New Jersey, is believed to have been kidnapped September 16, 2019, during a family outing at Bridgeton City Park.
An Amber Alert remains in effect and a $75,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information leading to her whereabouts. Although they've received thousands of tips, efforts to find Dulce Maria by local, state and federal law enforcement have been unsuccessful.
