Dive teams and firefighters were deployed to help search the creek for "Baby Grace."

One local police officer described the waterway as a “rushing creek.”

“I cried. It is very upsetting,” Melissa Welch, a woman who lives nearby and saw search crews being deployed, told WGHP. “It is in God’s hands. All we can do is hope and pray.”
