Jessica Ridgeway: Police Search for Missing Colorado Girl   VIDEO

But Jessica's mother, who works the overnight shift at a tech company, was asleep. She didn't get the message, which delayed her calling police for nearly eight hours.

Jessica Ridgeway, a 10-year-old girl, shown in this image provided by the Westminster Colorado Police Department, went missing Oct. 5, 2012."When we start with an eight-hour delay, or a delay as substantial as this, the distance that she could have wandered even on her own just gets huge," Westminster Police Detective Trevor Materasso said.

Police say that Jessica's father, who lives out of state, is in a custody battle with Jessica's mother.

Police do not believe Jessica is with him, but are not ruling anyone out.

"We don't have a person of interest. And we are going to look at every angle multiple times," Materasso said.

Amber Alert issued after Westminster girl goes missing - UPDATED INFO with VIDEO

http://www.9news.com/news/article/293151/71/Police-volunteers-search-for-missing-girl

Jessica's mother works an overnight shift. When she got home at 7:30 a.m. she saw Jessica off to school at 8:30 a.m., according to 9NEWS reporter Kevin Torres.

Police say they got a late start searching because her mother didn't immediately realize she was missing. Officers say her mother slept through calls from school officials to tell her Jessica hadn't arrived.

Westminster police sent out an emergency text alert advising residents to be on the lookout before a system-wide Amber Alert was issued by the CBI Friday evening.

"[We] started activating a lot of personnel to start searching for her," Westminster Police Detective Trevor Materasso said.

An Amber Alert is only issued if authorities fear the child is in immediate danger.

There has been no mention from what I have seen. I can't imagine that there is not some one is looks in. Maybe mom just puts her tp bed and goes off to work???

One problem is that is the girl walks to school everyday by self to the park to meet up with frinds and then off to school ... that is a pattern that any predator could see and take advantage of.

Jessica is a good child and a good student, she said. Officials contacted every child in her class and all friends to see if she may have gone to one of their homes, but there was no sign of her.

She lives with her mother, grandmother and aunt.

Police seek help in finding Westminster girl


Darin Moriki | Posted: Saturday, October 6, 2012 11:47 am

Westminster Police Department is conducting a widespread search and asking for the public's help in finding Jessica Ridgeway, a 10-year-old girl who was last seen walking to school Friday morning.

Westminster Police Department spokesman Trevor Materasso said Ridgeway was last seen by her mother around 8:30 a.m. walking down the driveway of her home on West 107th Avenue and Moore Street.

Materasso said Ridgeway and her friends normally meet three blocks away at Chelsea Park and walk another 1.3 miles to Witt Elementary School, but on that morning, friends said she never showed up.

Jefferson County Public Schools called Ridgeway's mother around 10:30 a.m. and left a voice message noting her daughter was absent. Materasso said Ridgeway's mother, who works the graveyard shift, slept through the phone message and did not receive it until about 4 or 4:30 p.m.

He said Ridgeway's mother immediately called the police after noticing her daughter did not return home from school.

Throughout the night, about 50 police department officers and Adams County Sheriff's Office deputies used bloodhounds and thermal equipment to look for Ridgeway. Materasso said last night's search grid spanned from West 88th Avenue to West 112th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard to Alkire Street.

Divers search lake as nearly 500 volunteers seek 10-year-old girl

 ::snipping2::
A dive team went out on Ketner Lake in late afternoon to search with sonar for a body in the water, Westminster police spokesman Trevor Materasso said. They hope to rule out the possibility that the girl was put in the lake, he said.

Police are also scanning social media for information about the girl's possible whereabouts.

Jessica Ridgeway's mother stood in front of their home at 10768 Moore St. Friday morning and watched until the girl was out of sight on her way to Witt Elementary School, 10255 W. 104th Drive,
 ::snipping2::
Police investigators and volunteers collected socks and other items near Chelsea Park today, Materasso said. The socks were placed in evidence bags.

"We can't say at this point whether these are or are not related," he said. Detectives will show the articles of clothing to Jessica's mother and see if they belong to the girl, he added.
 ::snipping2::
A helicopter was used in the search. Bloodhounds were used through most of the night. Although the dogs picked up a scent, it could have been older than Friday morning, Spottke said.

"There were no strong hits," she said.

 ::snipping2::
Police are reviewing past incidents for a possible connection, including the attempted abduction on Memorial Day of a 22-year-old female jogger at Ketner Lake in Westminster. A man tried to put a chemical-soaked rag over her mouth. The woman was able to fight her way free and called 911.

"It's definitely something that we're looking at," Spottke said.
 ::snipping2::
Officials contacted the child's father, who lives in Missouri. Materasso said the family in Missouri there attended a child custody hearing there concerning Jessica Friday. He said he does not know the outcome of the hearing, but detectives do not believe it's related to Jessica's disappearance.
