FORT MYERS, Fla. (WSVN) — A Florida community is asking for the public’s help to find a missing girl.

Authorities said 9-year-old Diana Alvarez disappeared from her Fort Myers neighborhood, Sunday.

Neighbors said Diana, who is usually seen playing in the street, is always careful. “She never goes more than 4 or 5 houses [down],” said an area resident. “She’s afraid to go in the woods. She’s afraid to go anywhere near the major road. This is just so wrong.”

If you have information on the child’s whereabouts, call authorities at 1-888-MISSING.
