Missing Girl's Kin Go Door To Door As Police And FBI Continue Search

TACOMA - While police continue to look for clues in the disappearance of 2-year-old Teekah Lewis, the girl's extended family and friends are going door to door passing out fliers.

Tim Czapiewski, Teekah's uncle, said about 24 people, some of them strangers rallied by a request for help by a Seattle radio station, passed out fliers with the girl's photo.

"We really want to thank them all," Czapiewski said, adding that he hoped more people would show up at noon today at the Tacoma Dome to hand out fliers.

Teekah's mother, Theresa English, underwent a lie-detector test Monday to clear her of any involvement in her daughter's disappearance, Tacoma police said.

Police said such a test is routine, but they did not say how English fared.

"She understands it was to rule her out. She had no problem with it, once it was explained to her," said another brother, Kenneth Czapiewski.

Teekah was last seen Saturday about 10:30 p.m. while playing near the arcade area of the New Frontier Bowling Alley in south Tacoma. English was with her family and told police she turned her head for just a minute to watch her brother bowl and that when she looked again, Teekah was gone.

Patrons searched the bowling alley and police cordoned off the area, checking in cars for the missing child without success.

For the past few days, a combined task force of about 35 Tacoma police and FBI agents has scoured the neighborhood around the bowling alley at 4702 S. Center St. And tips keep pouring into the 253-591-5649 tip line set up by police.
