MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - A search continues in Smyrna for a two-year-old girl whose mother reported her missing.

A regional Amber alert is posted for Analyce Guerra.

Smyrna Detective Scott Byers says finding the 28-month-old girl is the priority, regardless of whether a suspect is named in her disappearance. So far, no one has.

Byers says the investigation is hindered by language. Many people who live in the apartments where the child disappeared are Hispanic. The police department has only about a half-dozen officers to who Spanish.

Authorities and volunteers have searched nearby Stewart Creek.

Eva Guerra told police she last saw her daughter asleep in the family's apartment Sunday evening. When she got up before dawn for a drink of water yesterday, Guerra said Analyce was gone and she found the front door unlocked.

Anyone with information is urged to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
