ANETH, Utah, March 16, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The search for 4-year-old Andanndine Jones, missing out of San Juan County, continued for a third day Saturday.

Andanndine is between 3 feet and 4 feet tall and weighs about 35 pounds. She has black eyes and brown hair.

Officials say she was last seen wearing a light blue shirt and dark blue pants.

Her first name has been reported by various agencies as Andanndine or Anndine.

Three teams of more than 100 volunteers searched on foot, the Navajo Division of Public Safety said in a Facebook post Saturday.

Boat crews from Grand County, the State of Utah and the Bureau of Land Management searched 24 miles of the river, and volunteers walked along eight miles of riverbed west of Aneth.

According to the post, “Water based search efforts will be suspended in anticipation of the heavy metal contamination released from the Gold King Mine on Thursday.”

The Navajo Police Department will continue to post updates on Facebook.

Anyone who has seen the child or who may have any information that could help in the search effort is asked to call the Navajo Police Department, Shiprock District, at 505-368-1350 or 505-368-1351.
