UPPER MERION TWP., Pa. -

The reward for information leading to the safe return of missing 10-month-old Saanvi Venna was increased to $50,000 Thursday, as investigators entered day four of their search.

Thus far, leads in the case of the missing girl have been minimal, and police remain quiet.

Upper Merion police believe the 10-month-old was abducted from her family's King of Prussia apartment after her 61-year-old grandmother was murdered.

On Wednesday, the FBI joined the search and provided specialized scent dogs that combed through the woods behind the apartment complex.

The girl's parents were brought back to the scene by investigators to help the K9s with scent detection.

A few hours later, family members took part in a vigil along with hundreds of people from the community to pray for the safe return of the baby.

FOX 29's Stephanie Salvatore reports that police aren't saying if they plan to expand their search or if there are any other areas where they are investigating.

An Amber Alert for the 10-month-old remains in effect.

The Citizen's Crime Commission of Delaware Valley, the Upper Merion Township Police Department, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and the Telugu Association of North America are all part of the $50,000 reward.
