(SD)-Sheriff Fears Search For Missing 9-Year Old May Now Be Search For Body
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom says the search for a 9-year old girl who ran away from a residential youth home in the Black Hills near Rockerville late Sunday morning without a coat is turning into an effort to find her body.
Sheriff Thom says if Serenity Dennard didn't find shelter somewhere, it's unlikely she survived the frigid temperatures of the past 3 days.
He's not ruling out the possibility Dennard found a warm place or that someone picked up her up, but says an intensive search that reached more than 200 participants assisted by dogs yesterday has failed to turn up any sign of her.
