Search continues for missing Virginia girl
ROANOKE, Va. (AP) -- A police chief says he's received no new leads in the search for a 12-year-old Roanoke County girl believed to be with her slain mother's live-in boyfriend.
Roanoke County Police Chief Ray Lavinder tolds CBS's "The Early Show" on Wednesday that police didn't receive information overnight that would be helpful in locating Brittany Mae Smith.
Authorities found the body of Brittany's 41-year-old mother, Tina Smith, at her home in Salem on Monday. An Amber Alert was then issued for Brittany and police believe she may be with 32-year-old Jeffrey Scott Easley.
Easley's mother, Sallie Martin of Franklin County, pleaded Tuesday for her son to come forward.
WDBJ-TV reports Easley dropped out of high school in 1996 in Ayden, N.C., about 256 miles southeast of Roanoke.
