A 14-year-old girl is missing after attending a high school football game with two older men — and her parents have expanded the search to neighboring states.
Chloe Campbell was last seen in Boulder, Colorado on September 30. One of the men accompanying her was described as Asian and the other reportedly had a beard.
“She was described by eyewitnesses as being with two men – older men, too old to be in high school,” said her father, David.
The police initially considered Chloe a runaway. Meanwhile, her family fears she has become a victim of sex trafficking.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children sent one alert for her.
Chloe’s parents have started one Google Doc with information about her in hopes that the public can help find her.
‘If you are willing to join our efforts to find Chloe, which includes distributing or posting flyers, posting on social media, joining a vigil or generally helping to find Chloe – sign up here,’ her parents wrote.
The parents are seeking help from people who live in nearby states, including Arizona and New Mexico.
Chloe’s parents thought she might be in Arizona after receiving mysterious texts and a picture from a Snapchat account. Chloe ‘looked hurt and uncomfortable’, David said.
“We want to make it clear that we have no family in Arizona, so this is very suspicious to us,” her father said.
Boulder police stated that ‘friends have received messages they believe may be from Chloe saying she is safe with “family” in Arizona and does not want to return home, but family and police have been unable to confirm if these messages are actually from Chloe or true’.
On Monday, Chloe’s parents said they were ‘relieved’ police were ‘finally taking this case seriously’.
Chloe is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and 120 pounds. She takes medication for mental and physical conditions, according to her family.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Boulder Police Department.
