FBI, Police search homes, cars in Jessica Ridgeway’s neighborhood Monday
WESTMINSTER, Colo. — FBI agents along with Westminster police investigators searched inside an outside a home early Monday evening just two doors down from where 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway lives.
Jessica disappeared Friday morning when she left her house near 107th and Moore St. She was walking to school, but she never arrived there.
FOX31 Denver’s Justin Joseph reports two police cars pulled up to the house at about 5 p.m. Officers went up to the front door and knocked on it.
No one answered, so they went to the garbage cans on the side of the house and started going through them.
Joseph reports that 15 minutes later the person who lives at the home came out and investigators went inside. They came out 10 minutes after that and began looking through a red and white pickup truck in the driveway.
FBI agents arrived at the home a few minutes later and all of them went inside the house.
Joseph reports two sex offenders live near the home that was the subject of this particular visit from law enforcement.
Police and the FBI have searched a number of homes in the neighborhood since Jessica disappeared and an Amber Alert was issued for her.
