The Town of Southold is committed to bringing missing Peconic teen Ashley Murray, 16, home safely.
So said Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell during his state of the town address Tuesday night.
"We are doing everything we can to find the young lady who is missing," Russell said.
The supervisor said he had been in touch with the Southold Town police. "This town board has made it clear they will have whatever resources they need," he said.
Russell commended the Southold police for their extensive investigation, and said police continued to work with other agencies, including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Suffolk County Police.
"They are doing everything they can do to bring this young girl home safely," Russell said.
Ashley disappeared on Feb. 25 after leaving a suicide note. In the days since, friends and concerned residents have created Facebook pages, distributed and reached out to help.
On Wednesday, Ashley's brother Jaime Cradehl said there was no news to report. Over the weekend, her family issued a statement, thanking the police and public and asking for privacy.
Southold Town Police Chief Martin Flatley said Wednesday that the massive search for Ashley continued, despite the fact that there has still been no word from the missing teen.
"We are still working with two members of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Suffolk County Police Department on this investigation and are still actively following investigative leads," Flatley said. "Yesterday we used officers to re-search and re-canvass neighborhoods in the Peconic area near Ashley’s house."
Anyone with information regarding Ashley Murray's whereabouts is asked to call 631-765-2600.
