UPDATE: Peconic Teen Still Missing; Search Continues

Police are preparing to potentially issue a Missing Persons bulletin.

One day after a 16-year-old Peconic girl was reported missing, the search is still on as community members rally to wish for her safe return.

"There is nothing new to report on this investigation," Southold Town Police Chief Martin Flatley said Tuesday morning. "She is still missing at this point. If there are no new developments in this case by this afternoon we will be releasing a Missing Person bulletin that we are working on now."

Southold Town police said Monday evening that they had "nothing new to report" in the ongoing search for a missing 16-year-old Peconic girl.

According to Flatley, "Our physical search of her neighborhood has ended, but we are still pursuing other investigative leads along with her family. We will certainly notify all interested parties when there are any developments."

Many concerned residents have asked why police did not release a name or photo of the missing teen.

"We have not released a photo as of yet as we are still pursing investigative leads. The investigation is still relatively young," Flatley said Monday night.

On Monday morning, officers conducted a missing persons' search for a 16-year-old Peconic resident.

The call came in at approximately 10:45 a.m. Monday, Flatley said. Searches were conducted near the area where the teen resides, he added, including a flyover seach of the Peconic Bay.

"We're hoping we or family members can make contact with her so we know she's accounted for," Flatley said.

Kids are always writing suicide notes but not many of them go missing. There is plenty for the police to "go on" if they were serious about looking.

Be that as it may… it doesn't mean that she doesn't love her daughter and is distraught about her being missing… or it may mean something more onerous.

Pandemonium …. what's your point? Guy may have just pointed out another route for the police investigation to take. At this point EVERYTHING is on the table as to finding this girl. SOMEBODY knows SOMETHING.
