GOLDEN CITY, Mo. -- Golden City school officials made the decision to hold school Tuesday, after word got around about a missing 12 year old student.

Superintendent Kevin Baldwin says the school community will stay positive and continue to pray for her safe return.

 "Adriaunna is a sweet girl, one of those kids who shows up in the morning and has a smile on her face. When she leaves in the afternoon, she has a smile on her face. She always gives you a little hug, you can't imagine how sweet of a girl she is," said Kevin Baldwin, Golden City Superintendent. 

Golden City Superintendent Kevin Baldwin says he was shocked to learn Adriaunna Horton, 12, was missing. The young girl had just been in school Monday afternoon, by Monday night she had vanished.

"You never think it's going to happen in a small town, but this just proves it can happen anywhere," said Baldwin.

When Baldwin heard the news, he met with administration staff overnight and teachers around 7 Tuesday morning. After long talks with authorities, they decided to have school Tuesday.

"We feel like the safest place for our kids is in school," said Baldwin.

In this small community of just over 700, the kids want to do everything they can to help find Adriaunna.

"They all want to get out and do a search, in this case we have plenty of adults doing the search," said Baldwin.

Baldwin says the school community will stay positive and continue to pray for her safe return.
