During this crucial period, it is imperative to act fast. According to CNN’s Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence Analyst, John Miller, the first 24 to 48 hours are crucial in possible abduction cases like this. He emphasized the gravity of the situation on CNN This Morning, stating that “once they found her bike during that search, they realized she’s not on it, she hasn’t gone too far, she didn’t get lost. Something’s wrong.” It is vital to take immediate action and work towards finding the missing person as soon as possible.
According to Miller, the search party utilises all available resources, including helicopters, thermal imaging, license plate readers, and video surveillance, to locate the missing person. While some of these technologies are present in the area, Miller stated that they are not as readily available as they would be in larger cities like Albany or New York City.
Charlotte’s family has stated to NBC News and other media outlets, imploring anyone with information about her whereabouts to come forward. The family is understandably distraught and wants their daughter returned to them unharmed. They urge anyone with even the slightest tip to reach out and assist in any way possible. Their plea is heartfelt, and they hope the public will rally around them in their time of need.
