Missing Girl Reunited with Father After a Month


The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office reports that a 4-year-old girl who has been missing for over a month has been reunited with her father.

According to a Facebook post, Ariana Bemis-Eib was “returned to her father last night at about 11 p.m.” The post also states she was reported to be "healthy and in good spirits."

Few other details were immediately available but the HCSO is asking for anyone with information about the girl’s mother, Delisse Lalee Jones, 37, to contact the department.

The father reported his daughter missing May 15, after Jones did not bring Ariana to daycare in the morning as arranged after an overnight visit.

“A vehicle associated with Jones was located nearby her last known residence in the Eureka area. Attempts to contact Jones have been unsuccessful,” a release at the time stated. “This case is being investigated as a child custody concealment case. Jones does not have legal custody of Bemis-Eib and is in violation of a custody order.”
