The Washington County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office is reporting that 7-month-old Shannon Dedrick of Chipley, Florida disappeared from her home sometime on Saturday October 31st. Rescue workers have joined forces with local volunteers to search for the girl, starting in the area near her home.
It is sad to report that there are many thousands of children reported missing every day. Some wander away while others are abducted. When a child is missing, it is important for the parents to get photographs and other vital information to the police as soon as possible. Time is of the essence when trying to locate a missing child. In this case, the public has already been informed that Shannon is two feet tall and has brown hair and blue eyes. There is also a photo of her posted at the link, below. This information will hopefully help bring in more leads for the police so they can find Shannon quickly.
Officials have not reported much other information on the circumstances of Shannon’s disappearance to the public yet. The Washington County, Florida Sheriff’s office is urging anyone with information to contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST) or the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 850-638-6111.
