MADISON, Miss. (AP) - The mother of a missing Madison County toddler has been freed after 11 weeks in jail.

Erika Lewis was released following a probation revocation hearing Monday.

Father Gregory Lewis tells WAPT-TV he wants to return the focus to the search for his missing daughter.

His daughter, 2-year-old Myra Lewis, has been missing from the family's Camden home since March 2. After her daughter disappeared, Erika Lewis was arrested for possessing guns which prosecutors said violated her probation on a food stamp fraud conviction.

Sheriff's deputies found the guns while searching the Lewis home after the girl vanished.

Gregory Lewis says he's fighting to regain custody of his other children who were taken by the state after the family's home was condemned.
