    MA - Caleigh Harrison, 2, Rockport, 19 April 2012

    Police are searching for a 2-year-old girl who went missing near Long Beach in Rockport shortly after noon today, a State Police spokesman said.

    David Procopio said State and local police, along with dive teams, are searching for Caleigh Anne Harrison, who is 2 years, 9 months old.

    “At approximately noon, Caleigh Harrison was playing at the beach or around the beach area with her sister -- her mother was nearby as well,” Procopio said. “At some point in that time Caleigh went missing.

    A preliminary investigation suggested that the two children may have went into a grassy area looking for a ball or for some other reason, Procopio said, and “suddenly only one of the children was in view of the mother.” Caleigh’s sister is approximately one year older than her, according to Procopio.

    State Police have said Caleigh has light brown hair, blue-gray eyes, and was last seen wearing a light pink T-shirt and dark pink capri pants.

    The girl was there with her mother. Her mother went to pick up a ball and when she turned around the girl was gone, according to Chief Jim Doyle of the Rockport Fire Department.
    ~~
    The area where the girl went missing is said to have a tremendous undertow.

    A family friend says Caleigh Anne might have ventured into the water after her mother.

    Family friend Dan Rapp says he received a frantic call from Caleigh’s dad. Rapp says his wife was at the water’s edge playing with a dog and a ball. The ball went into the rough water, and she went to get the ball. When the wife turned around, the daughter was missing.

    Thank you for posting the link to the PC. I've been following Caleigh's disappearance all afternoon. I kept refreshing our local news' website, hoping to read that she had been found.
    I wish NECN hadn't cut the coverage of the PC short, as I was hoping to hear if the 4yo sister said anything to mom/the police about what happened to Caleigh. She should have been able to give them some sort of an idea.
    I'm praying for her safe return!

    Heart breaking for this little girl and her family. It just doesn't sound good... Hoping for a miracle tonight. I have a two-year-old and they are so unpredictable, it only takes a few seconds of distraction for her to get into something or take off and you can't be everywhere at once.

    I agree though, her sister must have some idea which way she went. Towards the water or... Was the beach crowded today? I know Mass had some warm/hot weather earlier in the week, but I though it had cooled off significantly yesterday.

    Not at all a problem, I was twisting my brain inside out trying to figure out what CA could mean lol.

    that makes my heart drop into my stomach.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    The undertow was especially strong in this area at this particular time because the tide was going out.

    I'm in Mass, but not near the coast. We were only about 60 here, so I'd say it was probably mid to upper 60's on the coast. Perfect weather for playing on the beach.... moo

    And while police say they won't rule out any possibility, many signs point to the ocean.

    "On the outgoing tide, it all funnels, it can suck you right out," said Rapp. "I've seen surfers and guys ripped off the shore fishing. It's a nasty place, people take it for granted."
