5 NEWS UPDATE: Search Continues for Missing 3 Year Old Girl

Three year-old Aliayah Lunsford went missing from her Bendale home Saturday morning, and ever since, search teams have turned her typically quiet neighborhood upside down in hopes of bringing her home.

This sounds quite strange to me, not alot of information yet, but apparently there is a Step-Father in the home, and other children. The Mother drove the Step-Father to work early in the morning, came home, could not find Aliayah, and drove around for three hours looking for her, ran out of gas in the car, then reported her missing to the authorities. This is what I got out of the report on HLN last night. But there is not alot out on the Internet about this story. Apparently the Mother is currently pregnant with twins.

Did she get out of bed and wander off? They are searching a river by her home.
Did she get taken out of her home by a stranger?
Does someone in the family know what happened to her?

Another child, just dissappears...

I watched it on Jane Velez Mitchell on HLN.

The story was presented differently. Nothing said about the mother driving the father to work, just they were awake and in the home, when she disappeared.

Cadaver dogs traced her to the river.

That's not what happened. I've been following this on another forum.

K-9s, volunteers, police search in West Virginia for 3-year-old girl

(CNN) -- K-9 dogs and hundreds of volunteers have joined authorities in West Virginia to look for a missing 3-year-old girl, but a sheriff's department lieutenant said in the two days since she was last seen that "we haven't come up with anything."
Aliayah Lunsford's mother and 9-year-old sister told police they saw the girl around 6 a.m. Saturday in a bedroom in their home in Weston, West Virginia, located between Charleston and Morgantown. The mother said she returned about three hours later to see the girl -- who had been sick the night before -- and take her temperature, but Aliayah wasn't there, Lewis County Sheriff's Lt. David Parks said Monday.
By that time, the girl's stepfather had already been picked up and left for work. The mother got in her car and drove around looking for the child, at one point running out of gas, said Parks. She called police to report Aliayah missing around 11:30 a.m.
A sheriff's deputy arrived within ten minutes and a larger crew by noon, according to Parks. About a hundred volunteers were on scene by the end of the day, alongside local, state and federal law enforcement agents.
The investigation so far has included search teams diving in a nearby waters, interviews with relatives and neighbors, and a door-to-door search. That's in addition to searches conducted by hundreds of volunteers. A bloodhound dog did detect Aliayah's scent in the vicinity of a nearby river, with a dog handler saying the girl likely had been in the area in the last three to seven days.
"We are still on it right now," said Parks of the search and investigation.

Man, I hate to point out the obvious, but this looks like a very bad deal.

If you're refering to the family, yeah.

I hate to say this before we know the outcome, but I get the feeling they were trying to downsize.

I prefer to use facts and not make judgements but....dang it, sometimes you just can't help it. She was there at 6am but not there at 9am? Ok. Sure. I'll buy that.

Not.

I could be wrong but 5 kids, two more on the way, kid just "walks" away? Really?!?!!?

Hmm. I can't stand it. What is with our society? They never did find out what happened toHayliegh Cummings either. Another baby "missing" in Missouri, Caylee Anthony, it is just scary.
