Search for parents of abused girl

MUNCIE, Ind. -- The guardians of an Indiana girl found dead in her home are facing neglect charges.

The girl's guardians were gone when officers found her body, but her four siblings all between the ages of 5 to 14 were home.

Now neighbors are using the tragedy to teach their own children about abuse.

"I need her to know that it is not okay for somebody to put their hands on a kid and torture them and beat them, "said Brittany Wortham. "Kids were not brought into this world to be beat on and punched on like punching bags." 

Prosecutors say they have more than enough evidence to charge the girl's parents with neglect causing death.
