DEXTER, Maine (KDVR) — Police in the state of Maine say they have received multiple reports that a girl matching the description of missing Westminster 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway has been spotted in a pair of small towns in the country’s northeastern-most state.

According to the WABI, police said a woman called to report seeing a girl who looked like Jessica Ridgeway driving around in a light blue Buick with Colorado plates in the town of Dexter on Sunday. Police told the T.V. station they received a similar report from the town of Harmony, with the caller reportedly seeing a girl matching Ridgeway’s description in the same vehicle Sunday.

This news comes a day after Ridgeway’s family spoke publicly for the first time. Police have said Jessica’s mother, Sarah Ridgeway, and father, Jeremy Bryant, have both been cooperating with investigators. Neither has been named a person of interest in the investigation.

The search for Ridgeway reached day six Wednesday. Westminster police said the hashtag “#JessicaRidgeway” is currently the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, something that has aided in the nationwide search.

The biggest break so far in the search for Ridgeway, who went missing on the morning of Oct. 5 on her walk to school, also came on Sunday, when investigators discovered the girl’s abandoned backpack and water bottle in Superior.

If you have any information regarding the investigation, Westminster police are asking you to call the tip line at 303-658-4336, or email PDamberalert@cityofwestminster.us.
