Officials have since said they have identified the person driving the Chevrolet Trailblazer, but investigators are still seeking information about the silver vehicle.

At a Wednesday press conference, Antley said the department was widening the search area beyond the Churchill Heights community where she disappeared, Fox Carolina reported.

The FBI has sent agents to assist in the search, Snellgrove said. They even clarified that her mother was very attentive in watching Faye and Faye herself was taught to be aware and pay attention to her surroundings.

On Wednesday, the Cayce Department of Public Safety released video footage of Faye getting off of her school bus.

"Faye is a bubbly and happy little girl" who "always wants to play and have fun", her family said in a statement.

She got off the school bus which dropped her off in her neighborhood and was playing in front of her house on Londonberry Lane before she went missing, reports ABC7.

"We're afraid of course, very distraught, but we're only thinking positive thoughts", family friend Monica Foutz said.

Anyone with information on the missing girl is asked to call the tip line at 803-205-4444. The number of searchers increased to more than 250 by Tuesday morning, according to the Cayce Department of Public Safety. "Talking with everyone who was in Churchill Heights at the time Faye was last seen is an important part of our work to bring her home".

Faye was last seen wearing a black shirt with the word "peace" on it.

"We're hoping for the best", Sgt. Evan Antley of the Cayce Department of Public Safety told reporters.

"We've got a lot of leads in", Snellgrove said. Officials said she has a speech impediment and is lactose intolerant.

Flyers with Faye's picture have sprouted up all over Cayce, a city of 14,000 neighboring the state capital of Columbia.

Faye is a white girl with shoulder-length strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. "Faye loves dresses, fancy shoes, spending time with her family, cats and playing outside".
