As Investigators and volunteers frantically search for missing 5th grader Celina Cass New Hampshire state police announced they will be lowering a portion of the Connecticut River in an attempt to find evidence in the case.
Over 100 volunteers are still searching the woods and fields surrounding the West Stewartstown, New Hampshire area, passing out fliers and enlisting the help of Canadian authorities in a race against time to bring Celina home safely. New Hampshire state police continued to search by helicopter in the thickly wooded area of northern New Hampshire.
While more information has emerged regarding Celina’s stepfather Wendell Noyes’ past, officials are still considering the Celina Cass case a missing persons case. Celina was reportedly last seen Monday evening on the computer in her bedroom.
Both the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have joined the search for Celina. West Stewartstown is a small community located just a mile from the Canadian boarder. The entire northern New Hampshire area has unmanned back roads that lead into Canada, prompting authorities to be on alert incase Celina managed to slip into Canada.
While the search over the past 4 days has turned up no clue as to Celina’s whereabouts, police hope lowering the Connecticut River will give them some much needed clues as to where the young girl went to after her parents went to bed Monday night.
Celina lived at home with her mother, stepfather and 13-year-old sister. The family has not spoken to the media, and is requesting privacy as police continue to investigate their daughter’s disappearance.
Celina Cass is described as 11 years old, 5′ 5″ tall and weighs 95 lbs. She has waist length brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last known to be wearing a pink shirt and blue shorts and was last seen at 9PM using Facebook on her bedroom computer. She has a very noticeable gap in her front top teeth where one tooth looks further back then the other.
