Her father was part of that search and said having all these people come together for his daughter sends a positive message to her.

“If she’s seeing this, all these people are here for you. We love you and we want to find you, baby,” he said.

The girl was caught on a security camera a block away from her home before she vanished.

The father added that her going missing like this is unlike her.

“The biggest concern is that she has missed two days of school. I talk to her every night and that’s not been happening,” he explained. “She’s not responding. I’m more than concerned for her well-being and so is everybody here.”
