    Details of Disappearance

    Sofia was last seen on Lake Michigan offshore from Holland, Wisconsin on June 9, 2010. She was in a kayak, not wearing a life jacket, when she drifted away from shore. Her father tried to swim out to get her but couldn't reach her, because strong winds were pushing the kayak out into the lake faster than he could swim. Another man got a canoe and paddled out to rescue Sofia, and found the kayak empty and adrift more than a quarter-mile offshore. There was no sign of the child and she has never been heard from again.

    Sofia and her family are from the Chicago, Illinois area and were vacationing on Lake Michigan when she disappeared. An extensive search turned up no sign of her. She is presumed to have drowned.
