The FBI has joined the case of a Colorado girl who vanished last week while walking to a friend's birthday party. Kayleah Wilson, 12, disappeared during a nine-block walk to her friend's house in Greeley, Colo. Police and FBI are now scouring the region on horseback, in all-terrain vehicles, with search dogs and by airplane, and hope a $10,000 reward will help solve the mystery.

"It could be a runaway. It could be an abduction. Right now, we don't have anything to rule out," authorities told CNN. A police spokesman said the case had eerie similarities to the disappearance about 25 years ago of another Greeley girl around the same age, who vanished from her house. That case was never solved.
