A 7-month-old infant has gone missing from her home in a small town in the Florida Panhandle. The Washington County Sheriff's Office said Monday that Shannon Dedrick disappeared sometime between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday from her home in Chipley, about 80 miles northwest of Tallahassee.

Since then, about 75 search and rescue workers from three counties have scoured the surrounding area. They were joined by K-9 teams and volunteers in a 14-hour search beginning late Saturday morning, and continued nonstop since 7 a.m. on Sunday.

The arm-to-arm search has covered a half-mile radius of Shannon's home, and deputies are expanding the area each hour.

Shannon was described as 2 feet tall and 11 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.
