Missing Woman's Church Holds Candlelight Service

SCOTTOWN, Ohio (WSAZ) – The church family of a missing woman from Lawrence County, Ohio, held a candlelight vigil Wednesday night.

Kim Little's church, Guyan Valley Missionary Baptist in Scottown, preempted their usual weekly Bible study in favor of the candlelight service.

"It's a great family,” Pastor Jason Morris said. “This is something you hear about happening somewhere else. You don't hear about it happening here.”

Investigators say 55-year-old Little, who's from Proctorville, disappeared Tuesday after she left work to run errands.

She said she was going to the bank and post office, but there's no evidence she made it to either location.

Debra Cardwell is a friend of Little and says they sat across from each other at church this past Sunday.

"We all feel so helpless,” Cardwell said. “We don't know what to do."

Friends and family say Little would call and text several times a day. To go this long without a word brings a feeling of disturbance they'd have preferred never being able to relate to.

"She was just a great person, a great mother, a great loving wife,” Cardwell said. “She was a terrific grandmother. She talked about her grandchildren all the time."

The service ended with silent prayer around the altar, a silent plea for answers and that their loved one will be found safe and brought home.

Little's family continued searching Tuesday.

Police are working on getting surveillance video from the route she may have been on to try to get some clues.

Little was last seen driving a white 2006 Toyota Sequoia with Ohio tags EBB9383.

Police and family asking everyone to keep their eyes open.
