(Newser) – Divers searched a pond in northern New Hampshire yesterday for clues to the disappearance of 11-year-old Celina Cass, who was last seen in her bedroom last Monday night. State Fish and Game Department divers explored Back Pond for any sign of the fifth-grader; the small pond is less than a mile from her home in Stewartstown, a community of 800 residents with one blinking streetlight and a handful of stores. Vermont and New Hampshire state police, the FBI, and other agencies also were continuing their ground search in those states and in Canada.

In the search for the tall, gap-toothed girl, investigators have knocked on hundreds of doors, and hundreds of fliers with her photo have been put up throughout Stewartstown and nearby communities. Law enforcement agencies have set up a command post at the local school, and concerned residents have passed out purple and pink ribbons and held vigils for Celina.
