(KSFY) - Gov. Kristi Noem is asking the public to help find a Pennington County girl who has been missing for five weeks.

Noem took to Twitter Monday afternoon to say no new information has been received about 9-year-old Serenity Dennard, who was last seen on Feb. 3 leaving the Black Hills Children's Home.

She continued to thank all the law enforcement agencies and volunteers who have worked to find Serenity.

"Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with the family, and we will continue to do all that we can to find Serenity and to bring her home," she said in the Twitter video.

Serenity is described as a Caucasian female, 4'7", 96 pounds, with blue eyes and shoulder-length dark blonde hair. She was wearing only a long-sleeved gray shirt with flowers, blue jeans and black snow boots. She did not have a coat.

Noem encouraged people to volunteer and said anyone who sees Serenity or has information about her should call their local authorities.
