LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana State Police, and several other local agencies, are looking for a 15-month-old girl missing from Spencer, Indiana.

The Spencer Police Department responded to W. Jefferson Street in Owen County, Indiana, regarding a missing toddler around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

After officers gathered information, Chief Rich Foutch requested assistance from area law enforcement in the search for 15-month-old, Shaylyn Michelle Kay Ammerman.

Police say there were several "attempt to locates" throughout the day on Wednesday, including searching for vehicles and persons of interest.

Investigators have interviewed several witnesses including the infant's family. Search warrants were also issued for different homes and vehicles.

No arrests have been made.

The child has blonde hair and blue eyes, is 25 inches tall and weighs 20 pounds, according to police.

Shaylyn was last seen wearing a white zip-up sleeper decorated with owls. A purple pacifier was attached to her outfit. The child may also have a blue and white "Winnie the Pooh" blanket with her.

Police have searched the areas in Spencer near the Jefferson Street address. Indiana Conservation officers have also searched the White River in that area using sonar equipment and other technology.

Spencer is about 60 miles southwest of Indianapolis and about 120 northwest of Louisville.

Anyone with information regarding Shaylyn's whereabouts is asked to call the Indiana State Police at the Bloomington post. That number is (812) 332-4411.

Tips will remain anonymous.
