    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Five years after a toddler vanished and her mother was found slain, San Francisco police Thursday offered a $100,000 reward in hopes of finding the child, who would now be grade-school age.

    Police also released a forensic artist’s sketch of what Arianna Fitts may look like as a 7-year-old girl.

    Arianna was 2 years old when she was last seen in Oakland in February 2016. The body of her mother was found on April 8 of that year, buried in a shallow hole in San Francisco’s McLaren Park.

    Nicole Fitts, 32, who went by Nikki, was a single mother of two who lived in San Francisco and worked at a Best Buy store. She was last seen alive on April 1, 2016, when she received a phone call to go meet her daughter’s baby-sitter, authorities said.
