Where is Celina? 11-year-old NH girl disappears

West Stewartstown, New Hampshire - July 27, 2011

The search is on for 11-year-old Celina Cass.

"We are all just heartbroken about this situation," said Cathy Paige of West Stewartstown.

The little girl was reported missing from the family's West Stewartstown apartment Tuesday morning. By Wednesday afternoon crews with New Hampshire State Police had searched the water and woods near the family's home.

"We're just hoping and praying she comes back safely and unharmed," Paige said. "That's what everybody in this community is hoping for."

Neighbors who know the Cass family say Celina did not show signs of trouble and is a happy, well-adjusted kid.

"She was hanging out with all the kids and joining in with everything," Paige said.

Celina was last seen using the family computer Monday night. State police tell WCAX they are searching the computer and the family's phone activity for clues. Meanwhile, leaders at the girl's school are offering counseling to classmates.

"We have had some response but not as much as we would have liked, because I think some of these kids need to talk out the issue and I think the biggest issue is everything is unknown," School Superintendent Robert Mills said.

Police have not confirmed that online activity is connected to Celina's disappearance, but educators and parents are reminding kids to be careful on the computer.

"When you go online the person you think you are communicating with may not be that person. But when you are a young person, 11 or so, that may not register," Mills said.

Investigators have declined to go on camera to talk about what they may know, but people in the small town are speaking up. They want Celina to know they are looking for her and are sharing a wish for the family.

"That they would find her," said Danielle Fuchs of West Stewartstown. "She is their next generation, a legacy, and they lost her so it is sad. You've got to carry the family forward."

Celina's mother came out of their apartment Wednesday. She was shielded by a tarp. Neighbors are not talking to the media.

Celina Cass is 5'5" and 95 pounds with long, dark brown hair. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and pullover, and blue shorts and shoes.

Anyone with information about Celina's disappearance is asked to call the New Hampshire State Police at 603-846-3333.
