    There are a couple of posts for Bella on Franklin County Sheriff's FB page. They are asking for volunteers.

    Authorities in Franklin County have launched a search for a missing 5-year-old autistic girl.

    (...)

    “There’s the fire department, sheriff’s deputies, and a K-9 unit on the way to help search for her, they’re going door-to-door,” said Franklin County sheriff Gary Toelke, who described it as a wooded area with a few homes.

    just to the east past the burger king and petro-mart is the junction of I-44 and Hwy. 100 that was mentioned

    i believe the home she is missing from is right in the NE corner of the baker street "loop", outer edge.

    hopefully they have taken their original designated search area and immediately sent some​ amount of searchers out twice that distance.

    There is a video here with scenes from the area. http://fox2now.com/2016/06/08/police...anklin-county/

    Here is a map. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ba...!4d-90.8608559

    From the video it looks like they are using the parking lot at the corner of Rt 100 and Historic Rt 66 as the staging area.

    Praying she is found soon.

    if the 1:45 - 2pm local time is correct then she has been missing for over 3 hours now. at least.

    (at least one story says 1:30, and of course we dont know if that is when she was noticed missing, or if that when when she was last seen etc)

    I so agree with that statement. In the video above it says that the official in charge of the search has some experience with finding missing children in the past. I hope he will also take the lessons learned from recent cases and not just start close in and work their way out.

    BTW, I don't see any large bodies of water close by on the map, but I did notice at least one swimming pool. Seems like there are a lot of hiding places around the area. It also looks like the type of place where it would be pretty easy for somebody to snatch a child and be on their way.

    They are now saying they don't need any more volunteers. They are doing a standard grid search/line of sight search. https://www.facebook.com/FranklinCou...fficeMissouri/

    multiple people saying ch. 2 reporting she has been found

    FOUND. ALIVE. SAFE.

    http://fox2now.com/2016/06/08/police...anklin-county/

    edit - headline for that story says she is safe, story itself has not updated yet (i guess) but if you go to the main page the link to that story says she is found

    2nd edit - ok story now includes update - "Update: 5-year-old Bella has been found safe and alive."

    yay
