Fayetteville, NC -- Authorities are continuing to search wooded areas near a mobile home community in southeastern North Carolina for a missing 5-year-old girl.
The Fayetteville Police Department said Tuesday that FBI and US marshals have joined the search into Shaniya Nicole Davis's early morning disappearance. Davis' mother reported her missing shortly before 7:00am Tuesday.
Police spokesman David Sportsman says authorities have found no evidence of foul play. Sportsman also says expected heavy rain may delay search efforts by several state and local departments involved in the case.
Shaniya is a black female with brown hair and brown eyes. She is about 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds. She was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt with pink underwear.
