GAS CITY — The search for a missing 10-year-old girl in Northern Indiana is headed into a third day.

Authorities are looking for Skylea Rayn Carmack, who is 5-feet-tall, weighs 100 pounds and was last seen wearing a black Mario and Luigi shirt and black pants. Indiana State Police said Skylea was wearing teal Converse high-top tennis shoes and blue and silver finger nail polish, and might be carrying a pink backpack, blanket with puzzle pieces on it and a pillow.

Dozens of volunteers went door-to-door Monday passing out flyers with Skylea's picture and asking for information. Her father, Kevin Carmack, said his daughter disappeared without a trace.

"We haven't been able to find any tracks," he said. "None of her belongings laid around anywhere, so right now, we're just really in a panic because we can't find anything."
