On August 14, 2012, at approximately 2100 hours, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by Danielle Bloyd who resides in the 1800 block of Yokayo Ranch Road. Danielle advised that on August 14, 2012 at approximately 1200 hours, her 10 year old daughter, Cecillia, had left the family residence to go visit a neighboring family member. At approximately 1800 hours, Cecillia had not returned. Danielle then went to the neighboring family residence and learned that Cecillia had not arrived at that location.
