The Northfield Police Department is asking the public for help in locating 6-year-old Elle Ragin.
Ragin stands at 3-feet-6-inches, weighs about 45 pounds and has brown eyes and curly brown hair, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says.
Ragin is missing after the apparent suicide of her mother, Lisa Wade of Northfield.
Northfield police say they found the body of Wade, 39, when they were called to her residence on the 600 Block of Maple Brook Court on Saturday.
Authorities say they have reason to believe Wade was involved in her daughter’s disappearance.
Northfield police ask anyone who has seen Ragin or Wade in the last two weeks to call the department at 507-645-4477.
The BCA is assisting with the investigation.
