Missing Girl's Parents Speak Out as New Photos Get Released
KREX News Room
WESTMINSTER, Colo.- Westminster police have released more photos and a short home video of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway. They are hoping this will help find the missing girl.
Jessica has been missing since last Friday; she was last seen walking to school.
In the video just released, Ridgeway is shown with her dog prior to her disappearance.
A dozen different law enforcement agencies are helping police in Westminster search for Ridgeway.
Hundreds of volunteers have also been helping.
Meanwhile, Jessica's parents are pleading for her safe return.
During a news conference Tuesday, Sarah Ridgeway and Jeremiah Bryant described the turmoil they have been experiencing since their daughter went missing.
The girl's mother described the last time she saw Jessica. "I watched her walk out the door, and I shut the door and that's the last time I saw her. I want her to come back walking through that door. I need her to walk back through that door. We'll never stop looking; we love her."
Meanwhile, Westminster police officials are working with authorities in Wyoming to see if a child abduction there has any connection to Jessica's disappearance.
On Monday, a man lured an 11-year-old girl in Cody, Wyo., into his sport utility vehicle after he said he needed help finding his lost dog.
She was released about four hours later and found by hunters.
