The Police continue their search for the 5-year-old girl who went missing from her Utah home, and her uncle, identified as Alexander Whipple, has already been arrested.


Elizabeth Shelley was reported missing around 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019, after her mother, Jessica Whipple, found her room empty.

It has been reported that Elizabeth's uncle had been at the house on Friday night and that he was also nowhere to be found in the next morning, Wes Shelley, her father, doesn't think Alexander could have harmed her.


According to Wes, he has known and been friends with Alexander for a while, even before meeting Jessica, and doesn't believe he could or would do it to his niece.


However, Wes also said:

"I seen how he was with her but, like I said, Jess ignored me for four years and I lost touch with Alex. A lot can happen in time. I just pray that my daughter is safe and gets home safe."


The concerned father left a message for Jessica saying that he "would appreciate a call" because he is worried and that he knows "how it feels to have her go missing in the middle of the night."


The authorities are currently investigating the case and over 200 law enforcement officers from multiple agencies, including local, State and Federal officers on the lookout for the missing young girl.


She is 3'6" with shoulder length curly brown hair with choppy bangs and has brown eyes

It has been reported that Alexander was found and arrested at the south end of Cache Valley, and was in possession of drug paraphernalia.


The 21-year-old was interviewed by the authorities but, according to a Facebook post shared by the Logan City Police, he was described as "uncooperative."


Several items pertinent to the investigation have been found near the victim's home, although the police are yet to uncover the nature of these items.

So far, no further details have been released, but the public is encouraged to keep a sharp eye for Elizabeth, who is believed to be wearing either blue jeans or a teal colored laid skirt. She is 3'6" with shoulder length curly brown hair with choppy bangs and has brown eyes.
