She is a freshman, CBS New York reported. Crystal Hospedales, the missing girl’s cousin, told CBS, “She is not a child who is super on social media. She’s not a child that dates. She’s not a child that has a wild side. She has never left home, so we are extremely concerned.”

Her family has hung flyers across the neighborhood and has posted requests for help on social media.
