    UPDATE: Authorities Searching for Missing Watson Girl

    A 7-year old girl is missing from Watson, and authorities are asking for help in locating her.

    [snip]

    Watson's Fire Department has been set up as a staging area for search teams as authorities comb the area for the girl. We spoke with Watson Fire Chief Matt Kulesza Sunday afternoon, who told us that at this time, search volunteers are not being sought, but those that show up to help will not be turned away. Kulesza said search dogs are on the way to help, and an Illinois State Police search plane is on standby.

    When Willow left home this morning, her mother says she didn't take her glasses.

    "Police tell us the girl walked away from her home on Circle Drive in Watson Sunday morning, and has not been seen since."

    "Willow is approximately 4-foot tall, and has shoulder-length red hair. She was last seen wearing a long purple shirt, oversize like a nightgown."

    Oh my gosh. Where is the world is this little girl. From what I can tell this is a very small town. Prayers for her safe return to her family.

    Note the update from 18:30...preparations for night search. Are there woods or something nearby I wonder?

    ETA: it looks like fields and stuff. I don't know how to show the map, sorry, I used the maps on my iPad?

    Here's her location: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=circl...gl=us&t=h&z=15

    Watson looks to be a VERY small town with some pretty densely wooded areas. Total area of 1.12 square miles. The population was 729 at the 2000 census. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watson,_Illinois

    Per Family Watchdog, one sex offender lives in the town (initials J.K.), who has a child pornography conviction. He lives on the other side of town...as far as the "other side" is.

    So I wonder if her glasses are mainly for reading, that she left the house without them?

    Was she wearing her nightshirt? I wonder why.

    And I wonder where she was heading?

    These small towns are so far apart from others, although this one is very close to I57 which is the main highway through the middle of the state. Do they have alerts out on the highway? In my experience, there are very few signs that far south. Maybe that has changed. The next major stop on that highway is Effingham. Is there an alert active there?

    Right, I am curious too. "Away from her house" could mean many different things, anything IMO from down the actual road to just walking from the house to get the Sunday paper at the end of the driveway. When I was her age I used to love just walking in the woods on our property and I did it often. So I wonder if it was a habit of hers to take little walks by herself or if that's something she wouldn't really do.

    not much to see on maps ... can't get a streetview, only satellite & it looks like a lot of trees, one large body of water in the town, close to 57 highway, and the town appears to be surrounded by farmland

    Oh gosh, she is SO cute. If anyone spots her, that red hair should be memorable. Where could she be? Was she angry or upset when she left home, or was she just out for a walk?
    always remembering

    I don't think she was wearing a nightshirt - they worded it as a long purple shirt, oversize like a nightgown

    Volunteers are still being accepted and requested, and those turning out will need to be equipped for rougher terrain, and lights for night searches.

    Searches from the air continue as well, with the ARCH helicopter from St. Louis taking 30-minute turns with the helicopter from Air Evac, searching a 1/2 x 1 mile area, working counter-clockwise from Long's home.

    There are numerous people searching on horseback as well, and Cumberland Search and Rescue is sending more horses to assist.
    Just my opinion.

    Be thankful for each day. Live in the moment.

    They used dogs. No scent to follow? Not even to the street? That seems odd. If she was walking I would have thought they would have taken LE on a definite course until she went inside a house or car.
