KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A couple returned home from their newspaper delivery jobs early Wednesday to find their 11-year-old daughter slain and her baby sitter, a 22-year-old man, missing.

``We are trying to track him down,″ police Sgt. Floyd Mitchell said. ``We don’t know right now what his involvement may have been.″

Police did not say how the girl was killed. Her 5-year-old brother and 1 1/2-year-old sister were asleep when the parents arrived home.

The parents told police that the baby sitter, a family friend, was asleep on the couch when they left on their paper routes about 2 a.m.

A computer and some other items were missing from the home, Mitchell said.
