“I want to thank the community for their support and efforts,” said Sheriff Gulledge. “They have provided numerous leads, helped keep the updates circulating, and given support to our deputies and investigators working this case; when a child is involved, it puts things in a different perspective.”

Deputies say the case remains active until other leads are followed up to ensure nobody else was involved.
