DES ARC, AR (KAIT) -

Authorities are now using cadaver dogs to search for a missing nine-year-old alleged drowning victim from Des Arc, officials in Prairie County said Wednesday. 

The girl was last seen at a sandbar on the White River in Des Arc, officials said this week. 

Several agencies have assisted the Prairie County Sheriff’s Office such as Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Arkansas State Police, Conway Fire and Rescue, Arkansas National Guard, Johnson County Rescue Team, and local volunteers.

The search will continue each day at 7:00 a.m., however, volunteers are asked to get off the river before nightfall.

“If you wish to help continue the search, contact the sheriff’s office and check in prior to launch,” Prairie County Sheriff Rick Hickman said. “We need to know who all you have in your boat. We will also give you instructions on what to do.”

To contact the Prairie County Sheriff’s Office, call 870-256-4137.
