Missing Child In Colorado

CHILD MISSING

If you haven’t heard by now, there’s another missing child case that’s in the news.

This is in Colorado, Jessica Ridgeway is 10 years old and nowhere to be found.

Authorities in Colorado are reviewing recent phone calls and social media clues in the disappearance of a 10-year-old girl.

Jessica Ridgeway left home at 8:30 a.m. on Friday to walk three blocks from her Westminster, Colo., home to meet friends for the walk to school. It was a route she took every day, but this time she never got there.

On Saturday, an army of eight hundred volunteers scoured trails and hillsides near Jessica's home.

Police officers and FBI agents manned road blocks, asking drivers if they had seen or heard anything out of the ordinary.

Officers also canvassed neighborhoods, however the day yielded a frustratingly few leads.

No organized searches are planned for today, authorities said.

An Amber Alert was issued Friday night for the 10-year-old, nearly eight hours after she disappeared.

When Jessica didn't show up for class, school officials called her home.

But Jessica's mother, who works the overnight shift at a tech company, was asleep. She didn't get the message, which delayed her calling police.

Police say that Jessica's father, who lives out of state, is in a custody battle with Jessica's mother. Police do not believe Jessica is with him, but are not ruling anyone out.
