Law enforcement officials on Saturday will resume their search for a missing 15-year-old Bay Area girl along the rugged Sonoma County coast and in other parts of the state as frantic family members await word of her fate.

Pearl Pinson was abducted on Wednesday in Vallejo while walking to a school bus stop near her home. Authorities think Pearl is injured, based on witness accounts and evidence found at the scene of her abduction. Her alleged assailant was killed in a shootout with deputies.

Sheriff’s deputies from Solano and Sonoma counties, along with the FBI, are focusing their search around the Russian River near Jenner. But officials noted that they were also looking in other parts of the state, including Marin and Santa Barbara counties.

“We do believe she may be here, or there may be evidence to lead us to believe she was here at one point,” Solano County sheriff’s representative Christine Castillo told KCRA. “This case spans from Northern to Southern California.”
