WESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Four years after her disappearance, police continue to seek answers to what happened to Aliayah Lunsford.

The child was 3 years old when she was reported missing from her home in Lewis County on Sept. 24, 2011.

Lewis County Sheriff Adam Gissy tells The Exponent Telegram (https://bit.ly/1jdSJe3 ) that authorities periodically receive phone calls about the investigation. But the flow of calls has slowed significantly over the past few months.

FBI special agent in charge Scott S. Smith says there haven’t been any new significant developments. But he says investigators remain optimistic that publicizing Aliayah’s story will generate information from the public.

The girl’s mother, Lena Lunsford, spent eight months in prison for welfare fraud after her daughter vanished.
