WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) — Authorities in Colorado are urging people to be on the lookout for a 10-year-old girl missing since leaving for school Friday.

Police released more photos of Jessica Ridgeway on Tuesday along with a short home video so people could note her mannerisms and the sound of her voice.

They're asking the public to notice Jessica's distinguishing characteristics — a small gap between her two front teeth and a sore on the top of her nose below where her glasses sit. They say she may not be wearing glasses.

The fifth-grader was last seen Friday morning after leaving home to meet friends at a Westminster park on her way to school.

Authorities are wrapping up a search of some fields near her home. Police say her family has been cooperating.
