The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Fort Myers Police Department are searching for an endangered missing teenager.
Kirsten Connolly, 16, was last seen Sunday in the 3000 block of Broadway Avenue in Fort Myers. She was at last seen at about 8 a.m.
Police are also searching for a male witness who could have seen the missing and endangered Connolly. They are looking for his dark-colored sedan as well.
Fort Myers police would not tell WINK News why they consider Connolly to be endangered. Police did have K-9 units sniffing around central Fort Myers. Authorities say getting dogs involved is routine to determine if Alexander walked away or was picked up by someone.
She was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and jeans and white shoes.
Connolly is 5’7″ and weighs 135 pounds. She has blonde hair and hazel eyes. She also has a scar on her right eyelid. Connolly’s date of birth is Sept. 1, 2004.
If you have any information about the whereabouts of this child, you are being asked to call FMPD at 239-321-7700.
Fort Myers police say they are hoping someone calls after seeing the alerts.
Angelica Blomquist, a neighbor who usually sees Alexander during her morning run, hopes that she is safe and returns home.
“I have a 16-year-old daughter and I would be like out of it if it happened to my kid, especially a good kid, you know?” Blomquist said. “I hope [she] gets returned back and I hope it’s on a positive note, but yeah, I’m sorry to the parents.”
