Using helicopters and tracking dogs, dozens of police and rescue personnel were combing a vast and rugged rural area Sunday in the frantic search for two young sisters missing from their California home.

The two little girls are believed to have walked away from their home in Benbow, Calif., on March 1, 2019.

Leia is 4 feet 2 inches tall, 85 pounds with hazel eyes and blonde hair.

Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal said at a news conference on Saturday, the girls had asked their mother to go for a walk in the afternoon and the mother did not give them permission. She was last seen wearing purple rainboots and gray long sleeved shirt with a hood.

The distraught mother says she told the pair they couldn't go into the wooded area near their houise but soon noticed they had gone. They have four canine units, a Blackhawk helicopter and several other partnering agencies helping in the search.

United States imposes new Venezuela-related sanctions
The sanctions block any assets they have in U.S. jurisdictions and bar Americans from conducting financial transactions with them. Lavrov reiterated Russia's allegation that the United States has been preparing for a military intervention in Venezuela.

The sheriff's office said Saturday they were following a trail of granola bar wrappers found in the woods after the girls' mother confirmed she'd recently bought the same brand.

The search extended into Sunday with officers going door to door and inspecting all vehicles going in and out of the sprawling area where the search was centered, about 280 miles north of San Francisco.

The girls' disappearance launched a massive search, and rescuers were able to follow their boot prints and granola wrappers. Lt. Mike Fridley said.

"So the wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended", Fridley said. This post has been updated with additional information. "We have so many of these kinds of efforts that end up in tears and tragedy". Ireland said Misty Carrico realized the kids were missing at about 3 p.m., at which point family and community members began searching for them. "We don't know. We're looking at all the different contingencies that could be out there".
