She was taken from Colorado, but there was a possible sighting in Maine. Please keep your eyes out all over! And keep this bumped :)

DENVER - Police in Maine have issued a statewide alert for a light blue station wagon after a possible sighting of Jessica Ridgeway was reported.

Jessica was last seen walking to school Friday morning in Westminster. An Amber Alert was issued Friday night and extensive searches have continued every day since.

Sgt. Alan Grinnell, with the Police Department in Dexter, Maine, told 7NEWS that a woman saw the Amber Alert on her computer Tuesday and reported the possible sighting.

Grinnell said the woman reported seeing a girl who looked very much like Jessica in the back seat of a light blue Buick station wagon with Colorado plates Sunday. He said they have not confirmed that it was Jessica, but did say police are taking the tip seriously.

The Dexter Police Department did contact the Westminster Police Department about this tip, Grinnel said.

Dexter, Maine is about 40 miles west of Bangor.

Locally, Westminster Police said Wednesday that they have received 650 phone calls to the tip line for this case so far. They said all leads will be checked.

A tweet Wednesday morning from the Westminster Police Department ( @WestminsterPD ) warned people to be cautious of unverified information in this case.

"Please be cautious of hearsay and rumors," the tweet said.
