New York State Police and Gov. Kathy Hochul held a press conference Sunday afternoon to discuss the disappearance of 9-year-old Charlotte Sena.
The child was last seen about 6:15 p.m. Saturday evening riding her bike in the Moreau State Park. Sena had been camping in the park with her family since Friday.
Troopers say they conducted an exhaustive search of the park overnight including K-9s, heat-seeking drones, divers, a helicopter and more than 100 first responders. State Police Lt. Col. Richard Mazzone told reporters following the search.
The circumstances of Sena’s disappearance have led them to conclude she is quite possibly the victim of an abduction and may be in grave danger.
Speaking at the conference, Hochul said she promised her parents the will find their daughter.
“She is all of our daughters. The family needs love, they need prayers,” Hochul said. “If you know anything, if you have seen anything, please contact 911.”
An Amber Alert for the missing girl was issued Sunday morning.
