Philadelphia police are looking for a third 'person of interest' in the case of a 5-year-old girl abducted from her elementary school by a person posing as her mother.

Investigators are looking for a female between the ages of 14- and 17-years-old who called herself "China." She's the third person of interest police have identified in the kidnapping, which happened Jan. 14 at the Bryant School in west Philadelphia.

A passer-by found Nailla Robinson early the next morning shivering on a playground about a mile away. Authorities said they believe the victim was targeted, and school officials said personnel did not follow proper procedures before releasing the child.

A district spokesman said the school principal has been reassigned. Four employees are being reviewed for possible discipline.

The reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects now stands at $80,000.
