The newly elected sheriff of one West Virginia county plans to urge an aggressive search for a toddler who has been missing for nearly a year and a half.
Sheriff Adam Gissy said he is reviewing the case files into the disappearance of 3-year-old Aliayah Lunsford. Sheriff Gissy said he hopes that by reviewing the case, the Sheriff's Department may notice something that others have missed. The FBI continues to investigate the disappearance.
The toddler vanished from her home in the Bendale area of Lewis County in September of 2011.
The case has been classified as a crime, but no arrests have ever been made.
