Aleeyah Cockburn: Search Continues for Missing 12-year-old Indiana Girl

The search continues for a 12-year-old Indiana girl who disappeared on Friday and hasn’t had contact with family since.

According to police, Aleeyah Cockburn was last seen at 9:54 p.m. on Friday, wearing a black beanie (with a donut image on the front), blue jeans, black boots, a black sweatshirt, and a gray and pink jacket.

Deputies were called to the 53000 block of State Road on Friday after Aleeyah reportedly left her home without consent. Police say the child is in extreme danger but haven’t yet provided additional details.

Initially, police believed she may have run away, but her family said she had no reason to leave and loved her home and animals, ABC 57 reports.

“She was wearing muck boots because she loved her horses.. she’s a very friendly girl…. Sometimes quieter than normal, but she’s a good kid with a good heart……please help us bring her home” Aleeyah’s legal guardian, Virginia Cockburn, said.

The family continues to hand out flyers and spread awareness while managing a Facebook page concerning her disappearance. The family reportedly said they were “thankful for all the support” pouring in.

Aleeyah is described as a white female who stands 4 feet-11-inches tall and weighs 80 pounds. She has green eyes and wears glasses.
