UPDATE: Missing Colorado Girl Reportedly Spotted in Dexter, Maine
Reports out of Colorado this morning indicate a body has been found in the area where 10 year old Jessica Ridgeway was last seen. Jessica went missing last Friday while she was heading to school in Arvada Colorado. Police are not confirming it is her, but say they will release more information today.
Earlier this week, a woman in Dexter, Maine told police she saw a girl who looked like Jessica in a light blue Buick with Colorado plates at the Dexter Variety Store. Local and federal authorities are still investigating and are treating as a missing person case.
Jessica was reported missing after she never showed up for class on Friday. Her school called her home several times but her mother who works nights missed the call and didn’t report her daughter’s disappearance eight hours later.
Last Sunday more than 800 volunteers were searching near by ponds, after the police discovered Ridgeway’s backpack and water bottle 6 miles from her home.
The police are asking Mainers to call Crime Stoppersif they see a girl who has a small gap between her two front teeth and a sore on the top of her nose below where her glasses sit.
