Effort continues to find missing nine year old

Even though the weather prohibits an effective and safe outdoors search for Serenity Dennard, the investigation remains a top priority to find the missing nine year old. Serenity ran away from the Black Hills Children’s Home on Sunday, February 3, 2019.

188 interviews have been conducted. Three search warrants have been executed for records. The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office has followed 45 leads and is using the assistance of the FBI and other out-of-state agencies for assistance with leads and sightings out of the area.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office, Rapid City Police Department and Pennington County Search and Rescue are still working on an active plan with canines when the weather warms and the snow melts to get back into the Rockerville area to resume searching for Serenity.

The most recent information describes Serenity Dennard as a Caucasian female, 4 foot 7 inches, 96 pounds, with blue eyes and shoulder length dark blonde hair. She was wearing only a long sleeved grey shirt with flowers, blue jeans and black snow boots–no coat. Serenity was last seen on South Rockerville Road near the Black Hills Children’s Home at around 11 am, Sunday, February 3.

More than 34 agencies, 355 personnel, 14 canine teams, an airplane and helicopter were deployed to find Serenity. If you have an additional information or tips, please contact the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office at (605) 394-6115.
