She was believed to be wearing jeans, a black T-shirt with monkeys on it and a pink, white and black plaid jacket. She was carrying a Tinkerbell backpack.
Volunteers have been gathering all night at Topper’s Pizza near 8th and Erie to search for the girl. A map has been posted on the wall and people are marking off areas that have been searched.
UPDATE I: Police Searching for Missing 7-Year-Old Girl.
Community members have gathered at the Topper’s Pizza restaurant, which is serving as a headquarters for the search. A large pizza delivery map is being used to help plot out the search areas. Searchers are being sent out in small groups to comb the neighborhood and wooded areas.
“At this point the map is actually a delivery map for Topper’s, so it’s got the quadrants, so it’s helping us quite a bit being able to divide the groups up between 4 and 6 people,” said organizer and family friend Melissa Toch.
About 80 to 100 community members have joined the search effort, and more are expected to join during the daylight. People are handing out fliers with Lilleona’s photo and information on the little girl.
Lilleona’s stepmother says she is thankful for the community’s outpouring of support. Tina Badtke says they are staying in contact with police during the search.
“We are in contact with the police, and we let them know what’s going on, if we find anything suspicious, anything like that,” said Tina Badtke.

Anyone with information on Lilleona’s whereabouts is asked to call the Sheboygan Police Department at 920-459-3333.
UPDATE III: Missing girl found safe after nighttime search.
This is a bit bizarre. The 7 year old spent the night at a classmate’s house but no adult in that home called this girl’s parents to tell them as such?
The 7-year-old girl who went missing Monday afternoon was found when she showed up for school Tuesday morning.
Lilleona Rose Badtke was found safe and sound at Longfellow Elementary School after apparently having spent the night at a classmate’s home, according to information released by the Sheboygan Police Department.
32 Year Old Actress Misty Upham Reported Missing on 10/6/14 in Auburn, WA (Update: Misty Upham Confirmed Dead: Family ID Body)
32 year old actress Misty Upham was reported missing by her father on Monday, October 6, 2014. Upton was last seen leaving her sister’s apartment in Muckleshoot, Washington on Sunday. The Blackfeet actress best known for her roles in “August: Osage County” and “Frozen River,” has been confirmed missing by Washington state police. According to the Auburn Police Department, they received a call with a report of a suicidal person at her parents’ apartment, but when officers responded they were told the suicidal person had already left.
“Our officers responded to her apartment where she lives with her parents on Sunday for a suicidal call,” Commander Steve Stocker tells PEOPLE. “When our officers got there, she had already packed up some belongings and left the apartment, so the officers were not able to contact or find her.”
The following day, Upham’s father, Charles, wanted his daughter listed officially as a missing person. However, Upham does not fit the criteria for a “missing and endangered person,” per Washington state law, in which the person’s missing occurrence has to be “unexplainable, involuntary or suspicious,” according to Stocker.
“As far as the information we have, she took some things with her, she has a bus pass and even access to some money, and [the case] has been assigned to a detective, but we aren’t putting resources [to look for her],” says Stocker.
In the last year, police have responded to Upham’s apartment four times for suicide calls, and according to past police reports, this is not the first time Upham has left home, Stocker says.
If you have any information regarding Misty Upham’s whereabouts, please contact Washington’s Auburn Police Department at 253-288-2121.
UPDATE I: Body Found … Misty Upham Confirmed Dead: Family Identifies Body.
A spokeswoman for the family of Misty Upham has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that a body found in a Seattle, Wash. ravine on Thursday afternoon is, as was widely suspected, that of the 32-year-old Native-American actress and activist — best known for her roles in the films Frozen River and August: Osage County — who was first reported missing on Oct. 6. The King County Coroner’s Office will address the media about the case on Friday.
30 year year old Kayelyn Louder has been missing since September 27, ,2014 in Murray, Utah. Louder disappeared from her Murray condo on September 27 around 7 p.m. Surveillance footage from outside of Louder’s condo shows her outside in the rain around 7 p.m. She left in the rain with no shoes, no money and without a cell phone. Louder lived in a condo with her dog, her cat, and a roommate.
Family and friends of Kayelyn Louder, 30, have been searching every day since she went missing on Sept. 27. Video from her condominium shows her leaving the building in a tank top, shorts and barefoot in the late afternoon last Saturday, said her father Jesse Louder.
“She left with just herself … and it was pouring rain,” he said. Though there has been no history of any abnormal behavior in the past, he said she had “a little bit of depression” due to her recent employment situation.
“She’s been in and out of jobs for the last year, so it’s been a little tough for her,” Jesse said. Kayelyn usually “checks in with her mother” on a daily basis, he said, which is why the family is so concerned.
She left her home with no belongings, leaving behind her mobile phone, house keys, purse, car keys and her pet dog.
Murray police are asking anyone with any information to contact them at 801- 264-2673.
