March 18, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The police search for a 4-year-old girl missing since last week on the Utah portion of the Navajo Nation remains on hold but volunteers and family members are still looking.

Navajo Police Department spokeswoman Christina Tsosie said Monday that authorities are determining what resources they need before resuming a search that was temporarily halted Saturday.

Tsosie says Anndine Jones wandered off Thursday afternoon from her home near a creek that connects to the San Juan River, a tributary of the Colorado River that flows into Lake Powell.

Crews searched 24 miles (39 kilometers) of river.

Police said there are no indications the girl was abducted. Tsosie says everyone is trying to hold out hope Anndine is alive.

She says she doesn’t know how many volunteers were searching on Monday.
