Authorities initially reported Athena Brownfield, 4, missing on Tuesday afternoon after a postal carrier found her 5-year-old sister wandering around alone on Nebraska Avenue in Cyril around 2 p.m.

The postal carrier knew the 5-year-old girl “wasn’t where she was supposed to be and notified police,” at which point law enforcement realized that Athena was missing, said Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) public information officer Brook Arbeitman during a Wednesday press conference posted to Facebook.

A Caddo County Sheriff’s Office deputy told FOX 25 Oklahoma City, however, that the girl may have disappeared as early as Jan. 6.
