The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office needs the public’s help to locate a missing 4-year-old girl.
Ariana Bemis-Eib, 4, of Orick, was reported missing by her father on May 15, 2019, at about 8:30 p.m. after she failed to return from a scheduled visitation with her mother.
According to her father, on May 14 at about 8 p.m. Bemis-Eib went on an overnight custody visitation with her mother, 37-year-old Delisse Lalee Jones. Jones failed to bring Bemis-Eib to daycare the following morning, as previously agreed upon as terms of the visitation.
A vehicle associated with Jones was located nearby her last known residence in the Eureka area. Attempts to contact Jones have been unsuccessful.
