The little girl has light brown hair.
A neighbor told LEX 18 that Eden’s Dad knocked on her door in a panic asking if they’d seen the little girl.
“They couldn’t find her, she’d just wondered off. They had got her ready they were going up to the theater and they got the kids ready and they were getting ready and they said they had come back and she was gone,” said Shirley Turner.
KSP, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office and search and rescue teams are actively searching for the 3-year-old.
Authorities say they are not in need of volunteers to aid in the search at this time.
