"It's very hard to stay by the phone when your baby girl is missing, you want to be out there," Denise Cornell says.
Cornell has been waiting by the phone for days.
"They say the best thing I can do is be there and stay home in case she calls and needs someone to pick her up," she says.
The last time she saw her daughter Sidney, it was Saturday night.
"We are praying for her to come home, her friends are ready for her to come home," Cornell says.
Since then the 14 year-old pageant princess has become the subject of an intense search. Crews are picking apart county map, zeroing-in on farms, creek beds, and other places they think there is a chance Sidney may be.
They started with an area near County Road 438 where her stepfather, John Cornell, was found shot to death from an apparent suicide.
"We won't give up until we find Sidney," says Walnut Ridge Police Chief Richy Thatcher.
After failing to find any clues, crews are moving further out toward the county lines.
Anxiously waiting inside her home, the only line Denise Cornell is focused on, is her is her phone's.
"We're waiting on that call to say they've found her," says Cornell.
