GREELEY, Colo. (CBS/AP) It's been nine days since 12-year-old Kayleah Wilson was last seen walking to a birthday party in Greeley.

Today, the search intensified as community volunteers joined the massive search effort alongside the FBI and the Greeley Police Department. The FBI and police have already knocked on a thousand doors and have followed up on hundreds of leads.

The latest push can be attributed to a woman named Michelle Thompson who started the Facebook page, "Prayers for Kayleah Wilson's Safe Return."

Through the Facebook page, Thompson is hoping to give the community a chance to connect with the search, as well as offer prayers and support to Kayleah Wilson and her family, according to The Greeley Tribune. Thompson also used the site to organize the community search that began this morning in Riverside Park.

Although Thompson does not know Kayleah, her daughter Jessica and Kayleah are good friends and attend church services together at the Abundant Life Fellowship, says The Greeley Tribune.

According to the Tribune, today's search turned up no sign of the missing 12-year-old, but police have received over 300 leads in the case.

On Monday, the FBI announced that a reward of up to  $10,000 will be given in exchange for any  information regarding the whereabouts of Kayleah Wilson.  

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