After more than 72 hours, most rescue crews are suspending ground searches ... but investigators are hard-at-work pursuing tips nationwide in the disappearance of 9-year-old Jennifer Renee Short. The Henry County girl has not been seen since her parents were found dead in their Oak Level home nearly three days ago.

As the search continues for information on who may have kidnapped Jennifer and murdered her parents - authorities hope that more pictures of the girl will stir someone's memory.
