KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) -- On Feb. 4 it will be nine years since 4-year-old Sofia Juarez disappeared in Kennewick.

Police believe she was abducted. There was an Amber alert. Officers searched homes, questioned more than a 1,000 people and chased tips from around the country and Mexico.

The Tri-City Herald reports (http://is.gd/llvwCp ) Sofia was featured on "America's Most Wanted," and her face appeared on a NASCAR race car and on semi-trucks across the nation's highways.

Sgt. Ken Lattin says investigators are frustrated they have no solid leads, but they're not giving up hope of finding her.

Lattin says Sofia is a young teenager now and might start asking questions about her past or where she lived when she was younger.
