Body of Missing 11-Year-Old Girl Found in Alabama
The body of a missing 11-year-old girl from Mount Vernon, Alabama, was found less than 12 hours after she went missing.
She was reported as missing on Friday evening around 6 p.m., triggering a county-wide search for the missing girl.
Her mother, Jonie L. Barnett, asked for help on Facebook, saying they have no idea where Amberly Barnett is, and need help with the search.
Amberly was wearing a blue hoodie with yellow stripes on the sleeves, and dark blue skinny jeans with white converse when she went missing.
She was last seen at her aunt's home in DeKalb County. Neighbors reported seeing a dark-colored SUV outside Amberly’s aunt’s home in Collinsville, Alabama, around the time she disappeared.
However, a spokesperson for the local sheriff's office said there is limited information around the case, and that they couldn't provide additional information. He added:
“Due to the current investigation, we are limited on the information we are able to release. I can tell you we are diligently pursuing different avenues and Lord willing we will have answers in the upcoming days."
Those with information pertinent to the investigation are asked to call the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at (256) 845-3801.
