JACKSON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities are searching for a 6-year-old girl who vanished from the front porch of her southern Ohio home.

Police in Jackson say a teenager was caring for Macey Stewart when she disappeared early Friday. WBNS-TV in Columbus reports the teen told police a man stopped at the house and asked to borrow a phone, and the teen went inside to grab a cellphone. The teen said when he returned to the porch, the girl and the man were gone.

Police say the man who asked to borrow the phone was being questioned. The TV station says a riverbank near the home was being searched Friday.

The child has light hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a black bathing suit with a yellow flower on the chest.
