Raynham police expand search for missing teen across several states
RAYNHAM, Mass. (WLNE) — Raynham police have expanded their search for a teen that was reported missing last week.
Colleen Weaver, 16, was reported missing last Tuesday after she was last seen leaving her home between 1 a.m and 4 a.m.
Police said Tuesday that their investigation leads them to believe that Colleen may be 100 miles away from her home.
Investigators said Colleen could be in one of several states including Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
“When a child goes missing it is every parent’s worst nightmare,” Chief Donovan said. “We are using every resource at our disposal to help locate Colleen Weaver and bring her home safely. If anyone believes they may have seen her, we asked that you call us without delay.”
Police added they have not had any contact with her and therefore detectives said she is believed to be in danger.
Raynham police and Colleen’s family are actively searching for her and are working with several other agencies including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Colleen is described as 5-feet-tall, weighing approximately 120 pounds, with red/pink hair. It is believed that she was wearing black glasses and possibly a sweatshirt and leggings.
Anyone with any information on her whereabouts is urged to call 911 or Raynham police at 508-824-2717.
