    "Gwynn Dilstrom was last seen at the Lower Goodell Group camp site wearing a black long-sleeve shirt with a cat picture on it and purple leggings. The girl is described as standing 4 feet tall and weighing about 60 pounds with blond hair."

    Link to Lower Goodell Group Campground, where she was reportedly last seen.
    Map of area at website.

    Hope they can find this adorable little girl soon.

    She's already been out there somewhere all night.
    Obviously, there's wildlife in the area.

    Time is of the essence.

    Not seeing much MSM coverage, unfortunately.
    Hopefully, that changes soon.

    Do the National Parks have any type of system in place to alert visitors to the parks of missing persons so that other campers, hikers, etc., are aware and can keep an eye out?

    'Prayers are needed': 7-year-old girl missing in North Cascades
    SABBM:
    Denise Shultz of the National Park Service said the girl was playing at the campground when she went missing, and officials do not suspect foul play. She said the campsite borders Goodell Creek, which is not especially high right now, but is a swiftly running stream.

    I've seen both 6:30 and 7:30 times reported for when she was last seen.
    Which is it?

    Who was there with her at the campsite?
    How many people were there at the campsite?
    How close was the nearest human being to her when she went missing?

    C'mon, MSM, get on it.

    JMO.

    I think she was last seen at 6:30 and it was reported at 7:30. The Whatcom county sheriff's FB says it was reported at 7:30.

    "The Park Service said she was playing at a campsite with her family when her parents realized she was missing around 6:30 p.m.

    Rangers were on scene within minutes and more resources were called to the area.

    Whatcom County Search and Rescue is in joint command of the search operation with the Park Service, along with help from Swinomish Police, Skagit and Snohomish County Sheriff's Offices, and Naval Air Station Whidbey.

    There are 120 staff and volunteers on the search, five canine units, a drone and helicopter with infrared."

    Here is a map of the campground itself:

    This is a group campground meaning a group can reserve either Site A (campsites 1-7) or Site B (campsites 8-14) or both, depending on the group size. Who else was in her group? Did a second group have the other site or did her group have both sites reserved?

    A news reporter for ABC News posted a 1:51 video on Twitter. I'm not able to watch a video where I am right now so I'm not sure what he says or shows, but here's the link: Patrick Quinn on Twitter

    He shows a video of the creek and that water is moving very swiftly. If she tumbled in, she probably quite a ways down stream.

    @PatrickQuinnTV
    7-year-old Gwynn Dilstrom is still missing 19 hours later. I’m told more than 120 volunteers are searching for her right now. More details tonight at 4/5/6pm on @komonews.
    ____________________________________________

    They've had dogs out along w/ the searchers.
    Very, very heavily wooded area.
    From where the reporter was standing, you could both hear and see the water rushing really rapidly.

    A google review of this campground advised to “carry bear spray and a gun” if camping there...:(

    Water + Wildlife = Dangerous Surroundings.

    She's so young and so tiny..and that park is so massive.

    Hoping and praying she's sheltered safely in place somewhere, and that searchers locate her before nightfall.
