Police ask for public's help in finding missing NH girl

West Stewartstown, New Hampshire - July 27, 2011

Heavy hearts and simple wishes filled a vigil for 11-year old Celina Cass Wednesday night.

"We're crying and hugging, just there for each other, that's how it should be," said friend Kayla Baglio.

Celina was reported missing Tuesday morning from her home in West Stewartstown. She was last seen on her computer the night before.

"The girl was very close to me, she's my sister's classmate. It's a small town and you know everyone, and when something like this happens, it hits home," said Baglio.

Wednesday night, the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office announced that the FBI is joining the investigation. The move came after ground searches were unsuccessful. State police roped off the family's apartment. They also searched a red Chevy in an abutting parking lot, but would not say why.

"We are marshaling all resources available to us, state, federal, local, in both New Hampshire and Vermont. The goal of this investigation is to bring Celina home safely," said Jane Young, N.H. Assistant Attorney General.

Investigators are searching the girl's computer and phone activity. They're looking for any evidence that may point to why she disappeared and where she is. Authorities are also asking the public for help.

"Anybody who has any information about the whereabouts on Monday or Tuesday, are encouraged to call police," Young said.

For now, tears, fears and frustration fill this town of less than 1,000.

"I'm worried because I'm from a family of seven. I don't know if I should be watching out for my little sisters and my little brother, or my friend's kids," said Baglio.

Celina's family isn't talking, but others who love her are hoping she'll make it home safely.

"I'm hoping Celina comes home safely because she is loved, and I hope everything is going to be OK," Baglio said.
