Sixteen-year-old Kayla Campbell still hasn't been found and her disappearance is entering day three. The latest update in her case indicates that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is now involved in the search for her -- which indicates the possibility that she didn't voluntarily disappear. The FBI ordinarily gets involved in cases like this when there is evidence of a kidnapping; Especially a kidnapping that may involve traveling over state borders. However there are probably other criteria that attract the FBI to cases as well.
Hopefully something positive comes out of this search with the FBI. Will they be utilizing scent dogs and other resources in the search for her? Are the items that were found yesterday being tested in a crime lab? It's still possible that someone else's DNA could have transferred onto her belongings if she were involved in any type of struggle -- though it should be noted that officials say there is no evidence of foul play.
Kayla Campbell was also reportedly battling depression before she vanished, according to her brother Josh. The sibling says that the family believed she was getting better after she'd been seeking professional help.
