Search continues for missing Harnett girl

Posted April 3, 2009 1:26 p.m. EDT

— Harnett County authorities continue to search for six year old Ca'zhia McMillan along the Little River, Maj. Gary C. McNeill said Friday.

Ca'zhia was playing with a friend last March 24 when she apparently fell into the water. The first-grader at Anderson Creek Primary School hasn't been seen since.

County personnel ride the river in boats daily and the state Highway Patrol has flown over the area when the weather was clear, according to a release from the sheriff's office.

The Lower Little River has been at level several feet higher than normal after recent rainfalls, making a search by divers unsafe.

The sheriff's office reiterated Friday that they "have no reason to believe that the incident did not occur exactly the way it was reported by the witness."
