The George County Sheriff’s Office used the K-9 officers over the weekend, hoping the dogs could pick up on her scent. Volunteers were also involved in the search.

Investigators believe Crawford left her house on foot and may have been in the company of a man nicknamed “Mann.”

Kayla has been entered as a Missing Person on NCIC.
