JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's been nearly two years since the little Myra Lewis disappeared from her Madison County home. Although the missing toddler has not been located, a new team of private investigators has joined the search.

There's a lot that needs to be unraveled in this case," said Sandye Roberts of Halos Investigations LLC.

The 61 year old child advocate and investigator was contacted by the Lewis family four months ago to help track down the two year old who went missing from her Camden community home on March 1, 2014.

There have been extensive searches, including recent DNA testing conducted on a child family members believed was Myra but proved otherwise.

Now Halos Investigations, a new firm on the Gulf Coast, has joined the probe, offering their services for free.

But Roberts is not optimistic that Myra will be found safe.

"The family does feel like she's still alive," said Roberts. "We can't really feel a hundred percent like that may be the case."

When asked if there was new evidence that leads to that assumption, investigators would not release details.

"Just information that we've gathered, said Roberts. "Even if someone did take her, there is a great possibility that some harm could have come to her. There's been absolutely no sightings." 

The family has also reached out to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to create an age progression photograph of what Myra would look like at age four. 

"I believe that either way she's still in the state," added Roberts.

Meanwhile Madison County Sheriff's Department Spokesman Heath Hall said Robert's team has not been in contact with the department.

He said they continue to track leads that come from the public but nothing has come to fruition.

Hall also said nothing leads them to believe that the child is dead.
