Former Cornish Girl Kidnapped

Clark & Reigh Rockefeller Clark & Reigh Rockefeller

Cornish, New Hampshire - July 31, 2008

Residents in Cornish, New Hampshire are worried about a little girl who was kidnapped.

Police are searching for Clark Rockefeller, 48, and his daughter, Reigh, 7. Rockefeller allegedly took off with the girl during a supervised visit in Boston. Rockefeller lives in Boston, but Reigh lives in London with her mother. Rockefeller and Reigh used to live in Cornish, New Hampshire. And when they lived there, Rockefeller bought the town's church so the town could use the money to build a new police station.

"Clark was a very interesting man, for as he always wanted to be the center of a lot of things whatever he was doing. He liked to be the center of attention whether it had something to do with his house or a business dealing in town, or the church behind us," said Cornish selectman Keith Jones.

"I really don't think he would ever do any harm to her. I was really surprised to hear that was a concern. He's been a great father, and I don't think he could ever hurt her. I think she is really safe," said Emily Miller, who used to baby-sit Reigh.

The last confirmed citing of the two was in New York City Sunday night. Police originally believed Rockefeller was fleeing the country with the girl in a yacht. But Thursday, investigators said they no longer believe that's the case.
