AMBER ALERT Issued for Missing 10 Year Old Jessica Ridgeway of Westminster, CO Last Seen Leaving her Home Walk to School at 8:30 AM Friday, 10/5/2012 (VIDEO)

 

An AMBER ALERT has been issued for 10 year old Jessica Ridgeway who is missing in Westminster, CO .  Jessica Ridgeway  was last seen at approximately 8:30 AM Friday, October  5, leaving her home walking to school. She never made it to school. According to Westminster police spokesman investigator Trevor Materasso, Jessica’s mom gets home about 7:30 am and gets her her daughter ready for school. At 8:30 am she sends her off and Jessica walks to a local park where she meets classmates. They then as a group walk to school. However,  on Friday Jessica never made it to Chelsea Park, and the group walked to school without her.  Making matters even more tragic, the reporting of Jessica Ridgeway missing was delayed  as the school called her home to report her absent, but her mother sleeps during the day, and didn’t get the message until 4 p.m. That’s when she called police to report her missing.
Jessica Ridgeway was last seen in the area of 107th Ave. and Moore St. in Westminster.

Teams searched overnight and continued Saturday, using search dogs as well as going door-to-door around the neighborhood in Westminster, a suburb of Denver.

UPDATE II: From ABC News, FBI involved in the search.

Police are searching vast areas of terrain including fields and lakes. Bad weather kept search helicopters grounded, but about 150 volunteers turned out to help.

Police and FBI agents are stopping and searching cars, handing out fliers, trying to spread the word and generate leads. Officers are also going door-to-door handing fliers to neighbors.

UPDATE II: Here is a list of the present registered sex offenders in Westminster, CO. One has to potentially suspect a sex offender in such a missing persons case as the little 10 year old had a daily routine to school that any predator could have stalked.

      I wonder if they have searched the reservoir located about a half mile South of her home. There is an elementary school North of the reservoir.

      106th street is a major artery and it is very nearby. Remember the Duggard case in California where she was abducted at the end of her driveway and driven over the mountain to the coast.

      I know her mother is frantic. This child should have been escorted to the park or driven to school each day.

      They say they have checked the Westminster registered sex offender list. I would hope they are checking superior and see someone that lives in the development where her backpack was. Hopefully they talk to him.
