Vigil Held To Pray For Abducted 10-Month-Old's Return

Posted: Updated:
UPPER MERION TWP., Pa. -

It's been almost three days and still no sign of missing 10-month-old Saanvi Venna.

But the stakes have now been raised in her search, including a $30,000 reward for her safe return.

This, as the community comes together for an emotional vigil.

Hundreds gathered at Hueser Park in King of Prussia on Wednesday night to pray for her, while investigators ramp up their search efforts.

Saanvi's aunt says the family is having a tough time dealing with two tragedies – trying to find the baby girl, and also finding her grandmother's killer.

"Everyone is devastated," the aunt said. "We don't know which we should concentrate on grieving for my aunt to fearing for my niece"

Four other vigils were held in other cities with large Indian populations in Texas, New Jersey and Georgia. We're hearing that the consulate general of India is coming to town Thursday from New York City to help with the investigation, as well.

FOX 29's Chris O'Connell was live at the scene Wednesday night, and Stephanie Esposito is back out live Thursday morning in Upper Merion.
