Grassroots volunteers gathered at Atkins Park in the Queensborough neighborhood, early Friday morning. Volunteers scoured the park and walked through nearby neighborhoods looking for Shamia.

“We love you and we’re hoping to get you back reconnected with your family,” said Christy Stewart, one of the volunteers. “There are other people out there that are on their feet to help in the search and rescue operation.”

The compassionate effort brought people to this neighborhood from all over northwest Louisiana, including Blanchard and Keithville.

“Hope comes from God, you got to have God,” said Josh Reed, a volunteer from Shreveport. “If it was yours [child], you’d want the whole city searching.”

Little was last seen late Tuesday evening at Doug Williams Park in the city’s Mooretown neighborhood.
