Officials remove children from missing girl’s home

Officials with the Department of Health and Human Resources removed the remaining children from the Lunsford home, doing so with making any comment as to why.

The Dennison Street home in Weston was the last place that 3-year-old Aliayah Lunsford was seen more than a week ago.

It has also been reported Lena Lunsford, the mother of Aliayah Lunsford, has hired an attorney. The reason or circumstance as to why she may have employed legal counsel is unknown at this time.

Bad weather over the weekend hampered the search for Aliayah, now into its 10th day, according to officials. There were fewer searchers, and the rain and colder temperatures slowed progress.

The mission remains a rescue effort, according to Special Agent Jeff Killeen of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Law enforcement continued to investigate all avenues presented in the disappearance of Aliayah Lunsford, who vanished from her family’s home last Saturday morning.

Since Aliayah vanished, there has been an outpouring of community support from people willing to search to people bringing water, food and other supplies to be distributed from the Bendale United Methodist Church, which has served as a staging area for the search.

A press conference has been scheduled for 2 p.m. today in the lower gravel parking lot at Lewis County High School.

Authorities are asking any with information about the matter to call the Lewis County 911 Center at 304-269-8241.
