Multistate search for Va. girl, 12

By The Associated Press

Authorities are ramping up their search for a missing 12-year-old Virginia girl by putting her picture on billboards in several states.

Roanoke County Police Chief Ray Lavinder said Thursday that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is preparing to advertise the search for Brittany Mae Smith on billboards in North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, West Virginia and Ohio.

Police believe Brittany is with 32-year-old Jeffrey Scott Easley. The two haven't been seen since Brittany's mother, 41-year-old Tina Smith, was found slain Monday. Easley was Tina Smith's live-in boyfriend.

Lavinder says police have received more than 500 tips, but no confirmed sightings of Brittany and Easley.

At a news conference, members of the Smith family tearfully pleaded for Brittany's safe return.

Let me say that the "United Forensic College" is the friendliest, most helpful and accessible college out there right now. The Criminal Justice curriculum isn’t going to overwhelm you.
