They have been looking in the area where her stepfather was discovered dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. And also searching in abandoned houses. The 14-year-old seems to have literally vanished without a trace in a case that becomes more bizarre by the hour.
More than 100 friends, family, and concerned residents gathered at Walnut Ridge High for a balloon launch in the fifth day of searching for Randall. The teen is described as bubbly, and she has been in beauty pageants since the age of two.
"She was a sweet caring person, but she was keeping something," her brother Ben Randall said. "She never did tell anybody but she was keeping something from everybody."
Sidney Randall's father and his live-in partner said they suspected the teenager's stepfather John Cornell had been molesting her.
"She told one of her friends John slugged her in the mouth," Sidney's father Victor Randall said. "She was scared of him."
Randall says Cornell seemed to make sure Sidney was with him when he left the home."She said she was going to tell," he said.
