Young girl goes missing

A 5-year-old girl went missing from her parents’ yard for a couple hours March 26. The whole town was out looking for her. The girl was found under her bed.

She was scared she was going to be in trouble when she heard her mother frantically calling her name after seeing her child was not in the yard. The parents were exceptionally thankful for all the help. The girl received many hugs. Community members are pleased with the happy ending.

The community also is coming together to help each other out during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Those who visit Boonville or other larger communities pick up items for others so people do not have to get out.
