Alabama politicians are adding to the reward to find 3-year-old Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney, who was allegedly abducted over the weekend.

According to ABC News, the five commissioners from Jefferson County met Thursday morning for a meeting specifically about Kamille.

Each commissioner is adding $1,600 from his or her discretionary funds, for a total of $8,000. That money will be added to a $20,000 Crime Stoppers reward.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey's office has also offered a separate $5,000 reward, bringing the total up to $33,000.

Kamille was allegedly abducted as she was playing with other children at an outdoor birthday party in Birmingham on Saturday night.

An Amber Alert was issued but the Birmingham police said that there was no information on her whereabouts.

Commissioner Steve Ammons told ABC News that it is unusual to call a special meeting, but he and his colleagues knew "time was of the essence."
