Philadelphia police are asking the public's help in finding a missing 11-year-old girl who hasn't been seen since early Saturday morning, 3/7. Leylah White-Cotterell was last seen around 1 a.m. on the 5700 block of Dunlap Street in West Philadelphia. She is described as a black female, 5' 2", medium build, medium complexion, brown eyes, and black hair. She was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with "Boyz n the Hood" on the front and a red stripe on both arms, light blue jeans with holes, and Fila sneakers. She is known to frequent the area of the James W. Johnson Homes on the 2500 block of West Norris Street. If you have any information on Leylah's whereabouts, please contact Southwest Detective Division at 215-686-3183 or call 911.

A severed arm that was found in Fox Chase earlier this week has been positively identified as belonging to the victim of a hit-and-run on Rt. 1 in Bucks County hours earlier. The left arm was found around 8:30 a.m. on Monday, 3/2, on the 8800 block of Pine Road. Middletown Township Police Chief Joseph Bartorilla said that the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that the arm belonged to 29-year-old Alexandra Ridgway of Levittown. Ridgway was struck and killed around 3:30 a.m. by multiple vehicles as she walked along or attempted to cross the southbound lanes of Rt. 1 near the Neshaminy High School exit. "Examination of the arm indicates it was most likely transferred from the crash scene on Rt. 1 by a vehicle that traveled through the crash scene," Bartorilla said in a news release. "There is no information on what type of vehicle this may be or if it could be the initial striking vehicle of Alexandra Ridgway."

No vehicle stopped at the scene of the accident. Police say they found some evidence that may help them find the initial striking vehicle, which they believe to be a large truck. They recovered a piece of chrome-plated plastic from the grill of a Mack truck. That piece was manufactured for tractor-trailer Mack Trucks, Pinnacle series, model year 2004 through 2007. They say that the damage would be noticeable and substantial. They ask all Mack certified and other repair shops to be on the lookout.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced on Saturday, 3/7, that there are now two presumptive positive cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Montgomery County. That brings the total cases in the state to four. The two patients are an adult male and an adult female. They live in separate parts of the county and are voluntarily quarantined inside their homes. They are being treated for mild symptoms. Camden County, NJ, also confirmed that a Cherry Hill resident has presumed to have tested positive.

UPDATE: The man lives in Worcester and the woman lives in Lower Gwynedd Township.

The Philadelphia Phillies have instituted a new policy regarding autographs during spring training due to concerns over coronavirus. Players will now pre-sign a limited number of baseballs and photo cards in the clubhouse before each game. Security personnel will assist players in distributing the signed items to fans before home games in Clearwater. This will supposedly reduce the back and forth contact between players and fans and thwart any transmission of the virus. Spring training is usually a place where fans have a chance to get close to and have interactions with players.
