WESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Two years to the day of her disappearance, a 3-year-old West Virginia girl remains missing.

Aliayah Lunsford vanished from her family's Bendale home on Sept. 24, 2011, and family members are still praying for some definitive resolution.

Media outlets say relatives and supporters held a weekend vigil to keep the case alive. They're planning another vigil Tuesday at the Lewis County courthouse.

Sheriff's Deputy Sgt. Mike Posey says the investigation remains active.

Authorities have made no arrests and identified no suspects. The FBI has refused to say whether agents believe Aliayah is still alive, but it has offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to her recovery or an arrest.

Lena Lunsford spent eight months in prison for welfare fraud after her daughter vanished.

Aliayah's siblings are in state custody.
