Police in Bullhead City are searching for an eight-year-old girl who's been missing since Monday night. Isabella Grogan-Cannella was last seen in her home at around 11:40 p.m., according to this Tuesday night news report. It was just a couple of hours later that police were called when her bed was discovered empty. Cases like this immediately stir fear and anxiety for multiple reasons. On one hand, there is the fear that an intruder has snatched a child from the security of her own home -- but on the other hand, there is always the suspicion that the truth isn't necessarily being told by those involved. What is the case with this disappearance?
It's Wednesday and little Bella is still missing. The FBI has been asked to assist on the search along with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, but so far no updates have indicated that the agencies have stepped in to help. So far the details in this case are slim, but are also still developing. Nonetheless, with each day that passes, the likelihood of finding this missing child alive greatly decreases -- especially if she was truly abducted from her bed by a stranger, or someone with foul play in mind.
There are numerous questions to ask in this case. For starters, who all lives in the home with this child? Were all the adults in the home fully questioned and cleared of any potential involvement? Why was she discovered missing so close to her bedtime? What sequence of events led to her parents discovering her missing at nearly 2:00 in the morning (Tuesday morning). This strange disappearance shares some similarities with other cases -- such as the recent disappearance of Jenise Wright, who was later found to be murdered by her 17-year-old neighbor. Hopefully this case doesn't have the same kind of tragic conclusion, but with it being Wednesday morning with no known sightings of the child, it's hard to speculate a happy ending.
