    Police in Saginaw are setting up roadblocks in two neighborhoods in hopes of finding information about the killing of a 6-year-old girl whose body was found wrapped in tarp.

    The body of 6-year-old Alanna Gallagher was found in the street near Roundrock Drive and Cindy Lane, about a mile from her home, one week ago.

    Police are recanvassing the neighborhoods where she lived and where her body was found in a search for more tips in the case.

    Officers have set up roadblocks in both neighborhoods, stopping every car driving by and asking if they might have seen anything unusual a week ago.

    With no arrests, police said it is an important step in their investigation to make sure they're not missing anything.

    Teenagers found Gallagher's body tied and wrapped in a tarp at about 7:30 p.m. on July 1. Her parents reported her missing at about 9 p.m., and neighbors say her father told them she was last seen at about 5 p.m.

    Funeral services will be held Thursday at Calvary Lutheran Church in Richland Hills at 11 a.m. A burial will follow at the Greenwood Cemetery in Fort Worth.

    The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for Gallagher's death.

    Anyone with information is asked to call 682-888-3682 or 682-888-3684.
