Missing Child: Jessica Ridgeway

Description: The child was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black puffy jacket with pink lining, purple eyeglasses, and black boots with pom-poms. The child has shoulder length hair.
Jessica was last seen walking to school at 8:30 a.m. Friday.
Police say 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway normally meets a friend at a park before heading to school. But she never made it to that park or to Witt Elementary after she left her home, near 107th Avenue and Moore Street.
Jessica's mother didn't immediately realize she was missing. The mother works the night shift and slept through calls from school officials to tell her Jessica hadn't arrived.
I hope and pray that she is found soon and that she is alright.
