The FBI child abduction and rapid deployment team has been called to help in the search for missing Hardin teen Selina Not Afraid, Big County Sheriff Pete Big Hair said Tuesday.

The team is dispatched from several out-of-state areas and should start arriving Tuesday night, Big Hair said. The team -- mwhich responds when a child under 18 is believed to be in danger -- will be checking several areas throughout the day Wednesday, he said.

Not Afraid was last seen at an I-90 rest stop between Billings and Hardin after returning home from a party in Billings on New Year's Day.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office has searched an area below the Rims, and law enforcement has returned to the site of the party at 904 Lewis Avenue in Billings to look for Not Afraid's phone or other items, Big Hair said.

A group of her classmates gathered at the rest stop in support of the search on Tuesday morning.
