WARREN CO., Pa. (EYT) – Warren State Police are looking for a two-year-old girl who went missing along the Allegheny River.
At approximately 11:00 am on Saturday, August 21, PSP Warren received the report of a missing child in the area of 215 Valley View Lane / Allegheny River, Limestone Township, Warren County.
Upon arrival, it was determined that a two-year-old girl had left her residence and headed for an area near the Allegheny River, near the location above.
