Officers are investigating a credible tip this morning that the 7-year-old kidnapped Boston girl -- Reigh -- and her father are in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The girl's heartbroken mother, Sandra Boss, on Thursday made a plea on the internet for her safe return.

The videotaped statement read the following:
Clark,
Although many things have changed, you will always be Reigh's father and I will always be Reigh's mother.

We both love her dearly and have only her best interests and well-being in our hearts. I ask you now, please please bring 'Snooks' back. There has to be a better way for us to solve our differences than this way.

I also want to thank everyone for your help.

And Reigh, honey, I love you and miss you so much. Remember you're always a princess.

Clark Rockefeller and his daughter were last seen on 42nd Street near Grand Central. The trail from here though is murky.

Security cameras in an around Grand Central could hold a clue. Video is being reviewed by police as the manhunt continues for Rockefeller, 48, and Reigh Boss, his 7-year old daughter.

On a street in Boston, the divorced Rockefeller grabbed his daughter during a supervised visit. An SUV recovered by police was use to spirit them away.

Now a second unsuspecting driver and acquaintance of Rockefeller, who took the pair from Boston to New York City, is revealing more details of their drive.

"His daughter was there and I didn't think anything of it. I thought he had custody of his daughter," 30-year-old Aileen Ang told wbz-am.

She said she had no clue Reigh was allegedly being kidnapped by her father.

"She was happy. She was playing in the back. She said things like 'I love you too much, daddy.' And he would respond, 'I love you even more.' Normal, you know," said Ang.

She later went to police after learning of the Amber Alert and told them Rockefeller mentioned he had a boat.

Investigators are continuing to search marinas in the city and on Long Island. They are not ruling out anything.

"We're not assuming that he left on a boat. We're considering other possibilities," commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

One published report said a woman spotted a well-dressed man and a blond little girl standing on a street in Smyrna, Delaware. The little girl was wearing a flowered dress, similar to the one seen in pictures released by Boston police, but many reports prove to be false.

"We had a report yesterday that she was seen on a bus. It was a young girl who roughly fit the description of the daughter, but it turned out to be unfounded," Kelly explained.
