Police in the US state of Georgia fear that missing 7-year-old Jorely Rivera might have been abducted. The girl has not been seen since Friday afternoon, despite extensive searches of the area surrounding her home.
Jorely Rivera was last seen at about 5pm near the River Ridge Apartments in Canton, where she lived. An initial search of a 2-mile radial area has revealed no sign of her. She was wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans and black boots when she vanished.
Police are increasingly concerned about her, particularly since there is said to be no reason in her background for her to run away from home. They are therefore said to be increasingly convinced that she has been abducted.
