FBI Joins Search for Missing New Hampshire Girl

Comstock/Thinkstock(STEWARTSTOWN, N.H.) New Hampshire authorities plan to double their manpower and have enlisted the FBI in the search for missing 11-year-old Celina Cass.

Celina's parents last saw her at a computer in her bedroom on Monday evening. By Tuesday morning, she had vanished from the family's Stewartstown home. Friends and family described the girl as a shy fifth grader who would never run away or leave with a stranger.

Authorities will pore through Celina's computer and phone records, looking for any clues into her disappearance.

Police are treating this as a missing persons case and have not issued an Amber Alert. The FBI spoke to the community Wednesday night about their role in the search.

"We have deployed our Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team to help in the case which consists of multiple special agents with specialized experience in child abduction cases," said Supervisory Special Agent Kieran Ramsey.

Earlier Wednesday, investigators examined clothing in a red pickup truck parked next door to the Cass family home. They also set up police tape around the home and began examining the home in detail. Celina lives with her mother, stepfather, and 13-year-old sister. Celina's stepfather and mother have not released any statements since she vanished.

If you have any information about Celina's whereabouts, call New Hampshire State Police at 603-846-3333.
