Authorities are conducting a search for a 9-year-old girl, Charlotte Sena, who was reported missing at Moreau State Park in Albany County, New York. The young girl was last seen on Saturday evening while riding her bike around the park. After approximately 15 minutes, she did not return, prompting her parents and other campers to search for her. When they were unable to locate her, Charlotte’s mother contacted the authorities.
New York State Police joined the search for Charlotte on Saturday evening and continued their efforts on Sunday. Over 100 personnel, including aerial technology, underwater rescue teams, K-9 units, and bloodhounds, have been involved in the search. Additionally, technology experts have been called in to analyze other forms of communication in the park during the time of her disappearance.
Following an exhaustive search of the park, New York State Police issued an Amber Alert, suspecting that an abduction may have occurred. No further details regarding the alert were provided. Governor Kathy Hochul expressed her commitment to finding Charlotte and urged the public to provide any information they may have.
Charlotte was last seen wearing an orange tie-dye Pokémon shirt, dark blue pants, black Crocs, and a gray bike helmet. She is described as a white girl with long blonde hair, blue eyes, and approximately 4′ 6″ tall.
Moreau Lake State Park has been closed until further notice, and authorities have requested the public’s cooperation in refraining from visiting the park during the search.
