Montgomery County, Pa. -

Police and the FBI returned to the apartment complex where a 10-month-old infant was abducted and her grandmother was killed.

Sources close to the investigation tell FOX 29 the FBI flew in specialized "scent dogs" Wednesday afternoon from Virginia. The highly specialized dogs are able to follow the scent of a missing child.

Investigators spent several hours at the apartment building, but it's not yet clear if they found anything.

By Wednesday afternoon, FOX 29's Chris O'Connell reported investigators had brought the parents back to the scene where she went missing to help give the FBI K-9s an idea of the scent of the little girl.

A $30,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the safe return of Saanvi Venna. The infant was being cared for by her grandmother, Satyavanthi Venna in her parent's King of Prussia apartment building when she was taken on Monday. 

Police say her grandmother was murdered.

The 10-month-old is described as an Asian-Indian female who weighs 21 pounds. She was last seen wearing a white dress with pink flowers, black hair and brown eyes.

The Citizen's Crime Commission of Delaware County, Upper Merion Township Police, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and the Teluga Association of North America are all offering the reward.

FOX 29's Jeff Cole reports authorities have had very little to say about the case. Residents of the apartments, however, are stunned.

If you have any information on Saanvi's whereabouts, you are encouraged to call the tip line at  215-546-TIPS.
