Officials on Thursday swarmed the neighborhood where 6-year-old Faye Swetlik was last seen as the search for her enters its fourth day. The Cayce Department of Public Safety is on the lookout for the missing first grader who was last seen at around 3:45 p.m. on Monday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Faye Swetlik Hotline at 803-205-4444. A deceased male also was found, police said.

The search for the child is still active, despite rumors that suggested she was found dead earlier in the week. What does that mean?

Antley did not give any detail about who was home in the afternoon, saying it was all part of the developing investigation.

Her family said they last saw her playing in the yard around that time, but at some point she disappeared, according to WIS News.

"We're afraid of course, very distraught, but we're only thinking positive thoughts", family friend Monica Foutz said.

However, he allegedly said that "no self-respecting minister would accept those terms" and put in his papers instead. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has appointed Indian-origin Rishi Sunak as his new finance minister.

According to Snellgrove, they have made little headway into Swetlic's disappearance despite having the assistance of hundreds of law enforcement officers and other public safety personnel throughout the night. During a press conference on Tuesday morning, Lexington County Sheriff Captain Adam Myrick said they are going to stop everyone going in and out of the neighborhood today.

The chief said that when Swetlik was last seen she had a black shirt on with the word "Peace" across it. It was only after 5 p.m. that the family notified authorities that the child was missing.

During their investigation, authorities have towed two cars from the property where Faye lives, believing that they could be useful.

They've received almost 80 tips on the case and have started following up on about 50 of them, the outlet reported.

Again, there are numerous rumors circulating among the community about the case but the information in this story is all that police have confirmed at this time. "We just want to find Faye and bring her home". We're asking everybody questions - we're not leaving anybody out. The State is trying to get important information to the public as quickly and accurately as possible. She has blue eyes and reddish-blonde hair. She is 3 foot 10 inches and weighs about 65 pounds. Swetlik is lactose intolerant and has a speech impediment from her tethered tongue, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

For the past few days, Faye's grandmother, Ruth Collins (left with Faye and right), has been pleading to the public on social media for help with finding her granddaughter. "We are doing everything we can to get this girl home".
