Over 260 volunteers helped authorities search for a missing girl in Elk River Saturday. Daisy Jo Holland went missing Friday around 8 p.m. from the extreme northern edge of the Wapiti Park campgrounds. She was at the park with her mother, two other adults and five other children. She was last seen playing close to a creek which feeds into Elk River with friends as the adults set up camp.
