There is a search underway in our area for this little 10 year old girl, Jessica Ridgeway, who has been missing since Friday morning.

She was last seen when she left home to meet friends to walk to school at 8:30 on Friday morning. She never met her friends and she didn't make it to school.
Police, family and friends and members of the public continue to search the area where she went missing in temperatures that are 30 degrees below normal. It didn't get out of the 30s today and is expected to be in the low 20s tonight. It is supposed to start getting warmer tomorrow, but hopefully she will be found before then.
I have a 10 year old granddaughter. She played in a soccer tournament today. She was cold, but she was safe with her family and friends. I can fully imagine the horror and fear Jessica's family are going through.
Please say a prayer, light a candle, send out your best wishes that Jessica will soon be found safe and be able to return to her home and her family.
