    Lewis County girl missing
    Almost four days into the search, and still no word from Aliayah Lunsford, 3, missing from her Weston-area home.
    Wendy Alkire is one of around 1,000 volunteers who helped looked for Aliayah. Her search turned up cold and left her frustrated, like many others who want to help.
    "You can't just disappear like that," she said.

    Authorities searching for missing three year old girl
    The search continues in Lewis County for a missing three year-old girl who seems to have vanished from her home.

    Emergency crews spent nearly 12 hours Saturday searching for Aliayah Lunsford, and they say they plan to continue the search until they can find answers for her family.

    Police began searching for Aliayah around 11:30 a.m. Saturday after her family reported her missing from her south Weston home.

    Community comes together to look for missing girl
    The search continues for a three-year-old Lewis County girl who has been missing since Saturday.
    More than 1,000 volunteers have joined police in combing the streets trying to find Aliayah Lunsford.
    It seems as though Aliayah disappeared into thin air Saturday. Dogs can't track her scent and police don't have any clues as to where she could be, but that hasn't stopped the community from coming out to look for the girl.

    Lewis County girl missing
    Almost five days later and the Lunsford home in Lewis County is now a crime scene.
    The home in which Aliayah Lunsford, 3, lived is where her mother said she was last seen wearing her purple pajamas.
    But some question if it should've been turned into a crime scene much earlier and if police missed out on crucial evidence. The FBI, which took over the investigation Wednesday, doesn't think so.
    "You can Monday morning quarterback almost any effort, but I would not make that statement," Special Agent John Hambrick said.
