More than a day since she was last seen, hundreds of officers are trying to find a 6-year-old girl who went missing in Cayce, South Carolina, on Monday.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Faye Swetlik exited a school bus at about 3:45 p.m. Monday and was seen playing in the front yard of her home. At some point, the girl could not be located, and her family contacted police at about 5 p.m. to report her missing.
A neighbor whose son rides the bus with Faye told WYFF that she saw Faye’s mother walk the girl back to their house. And neighbors reportedly said that Faye frequently played on the front porch of the home.
A reporter for WIS-TV posted a video on Twitter showing FBI agents examining a porch in the backyard of the home on Londonberry Lane where Faye lives with her mother.

At a news conference Tuesday, Cayce Director of Public Safety Byron Snellgrove said that authorities have ruled out an abduction. He also reportedly said that Faye’s mother, father, and mother’s boyfriend have been cooperating with the investigation.
According to WYFF, a flyer released by the Cayce Department of Public Safety notes that authorities have been in touch with all of Faye’s known relatives, and none have seen or heard from the girl since she was last seen Monday.
Police have established a hotline to collect any information and tips about possible sightings: 803-205-4444.
