BRIDGETON, N.J. (WCMH/AP)  — A 5-year-old girl who disappeared last week while playing with a sibling at a New Jersey playground has been added to the FBI’s Most Wanted list of missing and kidnapped persons.

Dulce Maria Alavez and her 3-year-old brother were playing at the Bridgeton City Park behind the Bridgeton High School in New Jersey on Monday, Sept. 16 while their mother sat in her car with an 8-year-old relative.
