The little girl from Bedminster, is believed to be with a neighbour and family friend, and an unknown man.

The woman visited the girl's home yesterday afternoon with the man

They took her to visit McDonald’s shortly after 3pm, but have not brought her home or returned to the woman'sown home since.

The girl's mother reported her missing at about 7pm.
