Three-year-old Aliayah Lunsford remains missing after missing since 2011, but a positive update is available. A new sheriff is looking over the case, which is great news considering how quickly cases like these go stale when they remain unsolved. The new sheriff of Lewis County is having a look through the case files and going over things to see if anything might have been missed.
It's always good news when fresh eyes go over cases like these because sometimes things are missed the first time around. Vital evidence may have been overlooked and other details may have not raised red flags that might with this new sheriff.
It should also be noted that the FBI is also on the case, investigating the disappearance of the missing West Virginia tot. Aliayah Lunsford vanished from her home in Sept. of 2011, but officials have long acknowledged that her disappearance is the result of a crime. Unfortunately no arrests have been made, but the online speculation surrounding the child's case is thick to this very day. Hopefully the new sheriff will take some of the speculation into consideration as he delves deeply into the case.
