BOONE COUNTY - The Columbia Police Department and Boone Fire Department are searching for a missing girl in a wide area of east Columbia. 

Officials did not release her name because she is a minor. 

After about three hours, officials ended the search for the night and they said it will continue in the morning. 

An official with the Boone County Fire Department said he noticed her cell phone ping, meaning the department detected that a cell phone coming from the area belonged to her. It is the last place firefighters could have confirmed someone might have seen her.
