Indiana police are searching for a 10-year-old girl who disappeared from her home on Saturday and hasn’t been seen since.
Authorities issued a statewide Silver Alert Monday for Skylea Rayn Carmack, of Gas City, Indiana, saying the child may require medical assistance, but declining to explain why.
A statewide Silver Alert was issued for Skylea Rayn Carmack, who was last seen on Aug. 31 around 4 p.m. by her six siblings and stepmother at their Gas City home.
Skylea’s dad Kevin Carmack told FOX 59 that he believes his daughter ran away because she had been grounded.
“And it just went a little too far and she got stuck and now she’s just scared to come home cause she’s afraid now she is going to be in even more trouble,” he predicted.
Local officers and volunteers went door-to-door passing out Missing Person flyers and organized volunteer search parties that failed to find the girl Monday afternoon.
'We haven't learned a whole lot more than we've known from the get go, and that's the scary part,' Gas City Police Sgt. Micah Burdette told Fort Wayne's NBC.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Indiana State Police at 765-473-6666 or the Gas City Police Department at 765-674-2278 or 911.
