US for missing British toddler

More than 100 police officers and volunteers searched yesterday for a four-year-old from Northern Ireland who disappeared from a hotel in Orlando, Florida. Cadinha McEvoy was last seen on Sunday playing on a second-floor walkway at the hotel where her family is staying. "Her mother and my daughter were in one room. I was in the other. We were all packing," said the girl's father, Gerard McEvoy. Family members searched for an hour around the hotel before calling police. "It became rather a full-scale search rapidly," said sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons.

Flyers with the girl's picture and description were distributed throughout the area, which is not far from Walt Disney World.
