*MIK*) NEW TONIGHT.. THE SEARCH IS ON FOR A 10- YEAR- OLD GIRL FROM GAS CITY. HER NAME — SKYLEA CARMACK.. BETTER KNOWN AS SKY. SHE WAS LAST SEEN SATURDAY AFTERNOON.. ALMOST 80 HOURS AGO. *BROOK*) COMMUNITY MEMBERS HAVE BEEN PASSING OUT HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS OF FLYERS WITH HER PICTURE.. HOPING SOMEONE WILL HAVE A CLUE THAT WILL HELP. WISH TV’S DAN KLEIN JOINS US NOW.. AND DAN.. THEY HAVEN’T GIVEN UP HOPE. *DA*) NO.. BUT THEY KNOW THE LONGER THE TIME STRETCHES ON.. THE LONGER THE ODDS. *DA*) HER DAD TELLS ME SHE WAS LAST SEEN SOMETIME BETWEEN 3-30 AND 5-30 SATURDAY AFTERNOON. HE SAYS SKY WAS SHY BUT HELPFUL.. GREAT WTIH KIDS AND ANIMALS. AND ALTHOUGH SHE’S RUN OFF BEFORE.. NEVER LIKE THIS — AND IT’S GETTING THE WHOLE COMMUNITY INVOLVED. *DAN KLEIN, REPORTIN*) NAT: KNOCK KNOCK AFTER KNOCK.. NAT: KNOCK DOOR AFTER DOOR.. NAT: HELLO.. A SEARCH GROWING EVER WIDER TO FIND 10- YEAR-OLD SKY CARMACK. ONE OF THE ORGANIZERS FOR THE SEARCH.. HER NEIGHBOR ASHLEY LOPEZ. “I GET ANXIOUS. I JUST WANT HER HOME. I JUST WANT TO KNOW SHE’S OKAY.” SKY WAS LAST SEEN AT HER HOME HERE ON SOUTH D STREET IN GAS CITY SATURDAY AFTERNOON. NONE OF HER SIBLINGS SAW HER LEAVE.. AND THUS FAR.. NO ONE HAS SEEN HER SINCE. SHE WAS WEARING BLACK PANTS.. A BLACK T-SHIRT WITH MARIO AND LUIGI ON IT AND CARRYING SEVERAL ITEMS INCLUDING A PINK BACKPACK.. AND AN AUTISM BLANKET THOUGH FAMILY SAYS SHE DOES NOT HAVE AUTISM. VOLUNTEERS HAVE BEEN SEARCHING SINCE SUNDAY. LOPEZ DOESN’T EVEN KNOW SKY THAT WELL. “IF THIS HAPPENED TO MY CHILD, I WOULD WANT THE COMMUNITY TO COME TOGETHER AND HELP. WHATEVER I CAN DO TO HELP.” THE RESPONSE OF NO HAS BEEN PLENTIFUL THUS FAR.. OTHER FLYERS LEFT IN DOORS FOR PEOPLE COMING HOME. “THOUSANDS. WE’VE RUN OUT OF FLYERS BACK-TO- BACK.” WHEN SKY HAS RUN OFF BEFORE.. IT’S USUALLY AN HOUR OR TWO.. DOWN TO THE PARK OR PERHAPS A RELATIVE’S HOME — NOTHING LIKE THIS. A SEARCH OF THE AREA.. THE CREEKS.. EVEN FROM THE AIR WITH A DRONE HAVE YIELDED NOTHING. “DO YOU STILL HAVE HOPE?” “I DO. HAVE TO HAVE HOPE. ONCE YOU LOSE YOUR HOPE, YOU’VE GOT NOTHING LEFT.” SO THE WORK CONTINUES.. DOOR AFTER DOOR.. KNOCK AFTER KNOCK. “I JUST WANT HER TO COME HOME, JUST TO KNOW SHE’S NOT IN TROUBLE.” *DA*) SKY WAS HOMESCHOOLED.. HER DAD WAS JUST TOO UPSET TO TALK WITH ME THIS EVENING — WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE. HE SAYS SHE HAD BEEN GROUNDED BECAUSE SHE STOLE SOMETHING FROM HER SISTER.. WHICH IS WHY SHE MAY HAVE BEEN UPSET. HE WAS EXPECTING TO TALK IT THROUGH WITH HER ONCE HE GOT BACK FROM WORK. REPORTING IN THE STUDIO.. DAN KLEIN WISH TV
