Her father, Cesar Coronado, was discovered lying near a ditch Sunday. Officials say his body had been badly burned, and gunshots may have been involved in his death.

"She certainly is in grave danger. We are needing the public's assistance very much so. We want to confirm her whereabouts and welfare," said Walker County Sheriff Clint McRae.
