The Washington County Sheriffâ€™s Office has issued a missing child alert for 7 month old Shannon Dedrick. Shannon is a white female that is 2 ft tall and weighs only about 11 lbs. She has blue eyes and some reports say she has brown and others say she has blonde or white hair.
She disappeared from her home in Chipley, Florida, which is in the Northwestern part of Florida on October 31, 2009.
Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock says his department is following up every lead they can in the search.
A call came in reporting Shannon missing about 11:50 am on Saturday October 31. The main area they are focusing on right now in the search is north of South Boulevard and on the East side of Brown St in Chipley. Sunday afternoon approximately 75 people were out searching the wooded and swampy areas near Shannonâ€™s home.
Shannonâ€™s aunt from Texas notified the sheriffâ€™s office to tell them she would like the area residents to know that Shannonâ€™s mother, Christina suffers from a growth development problem that Shannon could have inherited. She says the problem includes a somewhat larger than average head. She is reporting this in hopes that this would make her niece easier for a stranger to spot.
Haddock says nothing makes them think the baby has been abducted but they realize the baby didnâ€™t just crawl or walk out on her own.
Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of this baby please call it in to the Washington County Sheriffâ€™s Office at 850-638-6111 or you can contact:
FDLE Missing Endangered Persons
My prayers go to Shannon and her family. I pray that this baby is found safe and returned home soon. When is this going to stop? Let us all remember in our prayers all the other children and their families we have been reporting about that are missing or killed including, Caylee Anthony, Adji Desir, Haleigh Cummings, Somer Renee Thompson, Elizabeth Olten, Masaraha Ross and Alex Christopher Mercado.
