Authorities are searching for a 9-year-old girl who went missing while camping in upstate New York
· Oct 2, 2023 ·

Truly a sad story here, and please, if you're in the upstate New York area, keep an eye out for any sign of this young lady — though it's possible she's long gone by now.

Some info on the missing girl, Charlotte Sena:

The family of Charlotte Sena, who went missing Saturday evening in upstate New York, is asking the public for help as authorities ramp up their search for the 9-year-old they fear could have been abducted.

Charlotte, who was camping in Moreau Lake State Park with her family, went on a bike ride with close friends around dinner time and never returned, officials said.

Police believe Charlotte could be in "imminent danger," according to an Amber Alert issued Sunday morning…

Charlotte was last seen around 6:15 p.m. Saturday, riding her bike in one of the park's loops. She had done a few loops with friends and wanted to do one more by herself, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said at a news conference. Her mother reported her missing around 6:45 p.m., after Charlotte's bike was found in the loop without her, Mazzone said.

The family is asking for help from anyone who has even the most minuscule tip (518-457-6811).

The first 24 to 48 hours are most important in these searches, especially if it's an abduction, so time is running thin.

More than 100 people are searching for the girl, including aviation and underwater rescue teams, bloodhounds, drones and technology experts, [New York Gov. Kathy] Hochul said. Charlotte is the niece of a member of the Schenectady Fire Department, which is also helping with the search, Hochul added.

Moreau Lake State Park is closed until further notice.

Prayers up to the Sena family in their search for their beautiful young daughter.
