GREELEY, Colo. (CBS/AP) Police are searching for 12-year-old Kayleah Wilson, who went missing while on her way to a friend's birthday party.

Wilson, from Greeley, Colo., has been missing since Sunday. She was on her way to meet a friend in an area across a busy highway from her home.

Over 20 police officers and FBI agents were searching for her Wednesday in Greeley, located about 60 miles north of Denver. Police used dogs to comb the medians, ditches and bushes along the highway for signs of the girl.

Police and FBI agents have not found any evidence that Wilson ran away or that she is a victim of foul play.

An Amber Alert has not yet been issued for Kayleah, as police say that the criteria for an Amber Alert are very specific and at this point all they know is that the 12-year-old has disappeared.

Carrie Booker, a neighbor of Wilson, told CBS affiliate KCNC-TV that Kayleah's mother "hasn't eaten for, like, two days because she's so worried." As of Wednesday night the girl's mother was still being interviewed. Police said they are taking a much closer look at this case.

The Brentwood Middle School student is 5 foot 1 inches tall, weighs 145 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a white and pink shirt, jeans and white and red shoes.

Anyone with information about this girl's whereabouts is asked to please call the Greeley Police Department at (970) 350-9600.
