Reachelle Smith, Update

This is a story that was released yesterday by the Associated Press:

[MINOT, N.D. - More checks and double-checks are planned around the city as authorities seek clues in the disappearance of 3-year-old Reachelle Smith.

"It's going to change day to day, as leads and stuff come in, or things we think we need to look at again," Minot Police Capt. Al Hanson said Tuesday.

Checks were planned in "couple of areas close by town that need to be walked," and possibly some flyovers, he said.

"We've thought about storm sewers," he said. "We may look at some of them this week ... just trying to think outside the box in some cases, to make sure we cover all the bases."

Reachelle has been missing for two weeks. Authorities thought she was with Leigh Cowen, 22, who disappeared about the same time. His body was found May 23, in a van in the Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge northwest of Minot, but there was no trace of the girl. Authorities said Cowen apparently killed himself.

"We're going to be doing some searches north of the Air Force base up to the area of the refuge and on the refuge itself, and then some other areas where the van was supposedly seen in the days prior (to the finding of Cowen's body)," Ward County Sheriff Vern Erck said. "We're just taking the task mainly out in the county, so it frees up city police to do everything in town."

Police Lt. Steve Kukowski said later Tuesday that there was still no sign of Reachelle, but authorities wanted to make sure they left no stone unturned.

"We're going over some of the same areas, and extending them," he said.}

Let's all pray for that little girl and her family. Pray hard, Campers! Resolution is always better for a family than not knowing.

hi ruthie in the sky, I was wondering if you were the only psychic working on this case or if there were other psychic points of view. I sometimes get psychic feelings even can here different types of energy and have basically been haunted my whole life but I don't know how to control the feelings and even try to back away from them because it freaks me out. if there other psychics on this I want to know what they are saying because I had a very vivid dream about 3 days after she was reported missing and want to know if others are thinking the same.
