The Outcome is probably very grim
Police officers and volunteers scoured Logan neighborhoods in search of a 5-year-old girl who was reported missing early Saturday morning.
Family members told police they last saw Elizabeth Shelley around 2 a.m. When they woke up at 10 a.m., she was gone. The girl’s uncle Alex Whipple, 21, had disappeared as well, the family said.
Officers later found that man walking around the northern Utah town around 3 p.m. and detained him, according to a Logan Police Department news release. The Cache County Sheriff’s Office has been questioning him, but said he has not been cooperative.
“We’re very concerned,” said Logan police Capt. Tyson Budge. “At this point, we believe she’s been harmed.”
Family members believe the girl was wearing a teal plaid shirt and blue jeans. She has shoulder-length curly, brown hair and brown eyes. The toddler is 3 feet, 6 inches tall.
The search will continue throughout the night and now includes agents from the FBI and multiple other agencies.
UPDATE: Police have booked the uncle on <a href="https://www.sltrib.com/news/2019/05/26/logan-police-continue/" target=_blank>a probation violation and the search continues.</a>
