Although the search is over, the investigation into what happened while a 9-year-old girl was missing continues.

Investigators are trying to figure out how Sidney Peet left her home in Cotopaxi, a small town outside Canon City, and ended up in Poncha Springs. The two tons are separated by about 50 miles.

The girl’s foster parents say she went outside to play around 8:00 a.m. and disappeared. Her foster parents called authorities after spending several hours searching for her.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office believed the girl was heading to Grand Junction, where her biological mother lives. Somewhere along the way, an elderly woman picked the child up. More than 14 hours later, the woman saw the girl’s picture on the news and called deputies.

Why the woman picked her up, and how long the two spent at the woman’s home remain unanswered questions. Investigators say they’ve visited the home and called, but haven’t yet been able to make contact with the woman.

The girl’s foster parents are in the process of adopting her.

    I know exactly why this little girl ran away, the foster parent associated with this child and her 5 siblings stole these children from my wife, and fabricated lies and manipulated these children to take advantage of the state of colorado's systems to stay on their own two feet. Yvonne, your time will come and the law will put you and your husband in prison, then your children will be put in the same situation that you have put my wifes children in. I cannot wait for the day you get whats coming to you.

    Why did she run away? Is there an interview conducted with the child to find out if any wrong doings are being done to her by her Foster parents?

    Seriously? They found her 60 miles from her home. Her home wasn't in the town of Cotopaxi it's closer to Westcliffe. 6th graders indeed. I live in the country because I don't like the city. Secrets, what a moron.
