Police release video and more photos to help find Jessica Ridgeway

Authorities are going door-to-door in a suburban Denver neighborhood for clues Tuesday and urged people to be on the lookout for a 10-year-old girl who disappeared five days earlier on her way to school.

The Daily Mail has a ton of photos and videos covering the story – check it out here

Jessica was last seen Friday morning after leaving home to meet friends at a park so they could walk to school. Police say she didn’t meet up with her friends or reach the campus.

Authorities got a late start searching for her because her mother works nights and slept through a call Friday from school officials after Jessica didn’t arrive for classes.

Police found her backpack on a sidewalk in a neighborhood about six miles north of her home two days after she went missing. Police had it analyzed at the state crime lab after taking DNA samples from her family.

Jessica’s mother, Sarah Ridgeway, told KUSA-TV in Denver that her home is too quiet without Jessica

“I want her to come walking back through that door,” she said. “I need her to come walking back through that door.”

Her father, Jeremiah Bryant, pleaded for his daughter’s safe return.

“I just want to find my daughter. I just want her back home,” he told KUSA. “It’s by far the worst thing I’ve ever been through. Still is.”

There are fresh sheets on the top bunkbed in her room and a nest of stuffed animals waiting for 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway to come home.

“Everything is up there how she likes it,” said Jessica’s mom, Sarah Ridgeway said Tuesday afternoon during a meeting with media at the Westminster Police Department. “We want her to be able to sleep in it again. Nice and warm and safe, where she is supposed to be.”
