Father of Missing Girl Believes She’s Been Kidnapped

The father of missing 5-year-old Summer Wells, who is at the center of an AMBER Alert, says he believes his little girl may have been kidnapped.

Wells says in a written statement for CBS Affiliate WJHL. “She would never leave our hill. I think that someone snuck up on her and grabbed her. I don’t think she’s in the area because the dog goes down to the road and that’s the end of the trail, but I don’t know that for a fact. The way that she just disappeared, she would never do that,”

Officials say more than 19 agencies are assisting in the search for the 5-year-old who went missing Tuesday night. They are asking neighbors to check trail cameras, sheds, and barns for any sign of the little girl. Anyone with information to call 1-800-TBI-FIND or call 911.
