ORIGINAL STORY — FDLE says Aja Smith was last seen in the 900 block of Bottomley Lane in Fruitland Park. Authorities say she may be in the area of Trenton, Florida with Clifford Smith, 44.

Aja was last seen wearing a pair of black pants with silver glitter, a superman t-shirt, and princess crown earrings. She is 21 inches tall, 25 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
