Police have said they don’t suspect Jessica’s parents, Sarah Ridgeway, who lives with Jessica in Westminster, and Jeremiah Bryant, of Missouri.
The only substantive clue police have disclosed was the discovery of her backpack and water bottle in Superior, about six miles northwest of her home, two days after she disappeared. Police won’t discuss what was found in the bag or test results involving it.
Law-enforcement leaders said they would not disclose further information publicly, saying it would either jeopardize or distract from the investigation.
“The commitment of the task force of investigators in this case will not waver, and our commitment and resolve to seek justice on behalf of Jessica will only grow stronger,” Yacone said.
