TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) -

Members of the Trumann community paid a visit to the home of a missing girl Tuesday to help the family continue the search for her.

Not only has the community donated money, but people are also making blue ribbons to pass out around town.

The girl's mother said the ribbons are small enough to pin on a shirt.

She added that she's grateful to see the entire town come together and said all are welcome to wear one.

"This is her comfort zone, that's the color she likes, that's the color she wanted, the color she fought for, and I'm really hoping and praying that that same fight in her will bring her home," the mom said.

The family announced plans for a prayer vigil Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. at the NEA Baptist Church, 601 N. Willow Rd. in Trumann.

The family said those attending will communicate with God, as well as pray for the girl's safe return.

The blue ribbons will also be available at the service for anyone who wants one.

Since Trumann police do not believe the missing teen is within their jurisdiction, Chief Chad Henson utilized outside sources to help with the investigation.

He said multiple agencies have reached out to help bring her home safely.
