Utah police are looking for Elizabeth Shelley, a 5-year-old girl who went missing from her home last weekend. The little girl was last seen at her home early Saturday morning at 2 a.m., but the next morning her mother noticed she was missing, as was her 21-year-old uncle Alexander Whipple.

The man did not live in the little girl's house but was staying there that night to sleep. Whipple, who has a criminal history, is the prime suspect in the kidnapping of his niece. Police reported that Whipple was located Saturday and arrested on a probation violation order. The man is in the Cache County Jail, but the girl was not with him when he was arrested.

Tyson Budge, Logan police captain, told CNN that he believes this case "is not going to end well." Authorities have revealed that evidence shows the girl is injured, without giving further details. Logan Police Chief Gary Jensen said during a press conference that there is evidence - including DNA evidence - linking Whipple to the disappearance of his niece. Jensen added that they are very concerned about the girl's well-being and safety, although they do not lose hope of finding her alive.

Whipple was caught on video by security cameras at a gas station near the girl's home on Friday night. The man was found by police in a remote area about 10 miles from Elizabeth's home with the girl's clothes in his hands, the Daily Mail reported. A baseball bat, alcohol and drug paraphernalia were also found when Whipple was arrested.

"They do not have all the information because we cannot disclose everything pertinent to this investigation," the police added in a post on Facebook. “There are many agencies in a coordinated effort that work all day and will continue to work until they find it. We will update Facebook when the information is available.”
