A Missing Child Alert has been issued for missing 7 month old Shannon Lea Dedrick . She was last seen at her residence in Chipley on October 51, 2009. She has a circular birthmark on the inside of her right leg.
CHIPLEY – Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock confirmed that there is a “person of interest” in the disappearance of 7-month old Shannon Lea Dedrick some time Saturday. Aside from shooting down rumors, however, Haddock gave little new information about the case.
