Police investigating the disappearance of a 6-year-old girl in Cayce, S.C., say the search continues despite social media rumors that a body had been found. Authorities have released footage of Faye Swetlik getting off a school bus on Monday afternoon, shortly before she was reported missing from her front yard. They also shared footage of two vehicles seen in the neighborhood around that time in the hope of speaking with the occupants. Meanwhile, two cars were towed from the property where Faye lives with her mother and grandmother, with authorities saying only that they could be of use, per WIS.

"We're not leaving any stone unturned. We are exhausting every resource we have and then some," Sgt. Evan Antley of the Cayce Department of Public Safety tells CNN. Per WIS, he noted that "a lot of incorrect information on social media … could potentially divert valuable resources from our mission of bringing Faye home." However, he urged people to keep highlighting the case to get the word out. An Amber Alert has not been issued as there's no sign that Faye was abducted and police have not ruled out the possibility that she walked off. More than 250 officers are combing the area. "We're hoping for the best," says Antley. (Read more missing child stories.)
