UPDATE 9/28/16 – The Help Find Emily Dowdle Facebook page has just posted that Emily has been found safe.
According to the Sherills Ford Terrell Fire Department, 11-year-old Emily Dowdle went missing from her home after getting off the school bus Tuesday afternoon in Catawba, North Carolina.
The Catawba County Police have posted on their Facebook page:
“This message is from Catawba County Schools. A parent of one of our students has asked us to reach out to you for help. The student has gone missing from her home after getting off of the school bus this afternoon. The student’s name is Emily Dowdle. She attends Catawba Elementary School. She is 11 years old and approximately 4’11” tall. She has long light brown hair, has hazel eyes, and wears black framed glasses. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt with an unknown design & capri jeans. In the event you have any information about her whereabouts after 2:40 pm today, please contact the Catawba County Sheriff’s Department at 828-464-3112 and ask for Chief Duane Cozzen or Brandon Styers. Thank you for your assistance!”
WCNC News is stated that the police are calling her case a “runaway missing persons case.” I am hoping that police have evidence pointing in that direction because 11-year-olds statistically don’t runaway. Evidently, Emily was skipping school according to these posts on Facebook, which may account for why the police are labeling her as a runaway:
But, it also may be because she was seen in a field:
Help Find Emily Dowell’s Facebook page posted, “At this time all VOLUNTEER search parties are still being put on hold-K9s are still on the ground and I assure you everyone involved in this case is doing everything they possibly can to help find Emily.”
