Massive Search Underway for Missing 7-Month-Old Girl

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This A massive search and rescue operation involving several counties in Florida is underway for a missing baby girl. The parents of 7-month-old Shannon Lea Dedrick, of Chipley, FL, reported her missing at 11:23 a.m. on Saturday.

The police say the parents have indicated that the baby was in the same room as the parents, and could have been abducted between the hours of 3 a.m. and 11 a.m.

At least two neighbors are reporting that they saw a grey van near the missing girl's residence the evening before she went missing. They said it's the same van they have seen there numerous times over the past couple of months.

Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock did say investigators are looking at a "person of suspicion," but would not elaborate on who that person may be. Whether or not the person is related to the grey van seen at the residence has yet to be determined.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is aiding the Sheriff's Office with the investigation.

CBS/AP: The sheriff's office is asking the public to continue calling in tips.

Shannon was described as 2-feet tall and 11 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information can 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.
