A heartbroken family are desperately searching for a missing teenager girl who vanished last week after being spotted at a high school football game with two ‘sketchy older men’.

Chloe Campbell, 14, disappeared on September 30 after being spotted at Boulder High School, in Colorado, with her family claiming she may have been trafficked more than 600 miles away to Arizona.

Boulder Police are now calling for anyone with information about the missing schoolgirl to come forward, saying she might be ‘in danger’ despite initially dismissing the case as a ‘runaway’.

Her family are concerned for her welfare, with her mother Dr Jessica Knape confirming that her daughter had not been able to take her medication for her underlying health conditions.

Dr Knape and Chloe’s father, David Campbell, have hired a private investigator to assist them with finding their daughter, who was possibly intoxicated the last time she was seen.

Her family are concerned that she is being kept against her will, and David claims that the only communications the family have received are from ‘third parties’ from a Snapchat profile that ‘could be anybody.’

He added that they received an ominous photo from an anonymous source, which proves that she is still alive, but said that she looked ‘injured and unwell.’

Several friends have reportedly received messages from the missing teenager, but her parents say they have come from social media accounts that they are unfamiliar with. 

Her parents launched a desperate attempt to bring their daughter home, by hanging flyers around town with Boulder Police Department only joining the effort to find her eight days later.

In a statement Dr Knape said: ‘Her whereabouts are still unknown to authorities or her family and we believe her to be critically at-risk due to a number of factors.

‘There are friends who say she may be with someone (or several people) who are men, or older boys, who could be involved with drug dealing and who may have violent criminal records.

‘We believe there may be other kids who know where she is or how to reach her, but they are not sharing this information with the family or law enforcement.

‘There is some evidence that they are withholding information out of fear for their own safety.

‘Because Chloe’s case was initially designated as “runaway” and not “missing”, law enforcement and school authorities have downplayed the critical nature of the case, which has caused much angst.

’We are working collaboratively with the authorities to get the case the proper designation and we have retained a private investigator in the interim to continue investigating leads.’

Speaking to Fox News, her father David added: ‘Chloe never came home and we became very concerned, started investigating, and found that she was last seen with two older men.

‘She was described by eyewitnesses as being with two men. Older men. Too old to be in high school. One of whom was Asian and the other who had a beard.

‘This was around lunchtime at Boulder High and also a football game, these two men are described as being sketchy.

‘We have had multiple tips from various parties claiming that they have knowledge that Chloe is in Arizona, that she is “safe” and “has money” and is with a “family” in Arizona.

‘We want to make clear that we do not have any family in Arizona so this is very suspicious to us.

‘The pushback that we got from both boulder high and boulder police saying hey it’s no big deal she’s just a runaway was frustrating, but we never stopped investigating.’

Her mother described her as ‘vivacious and funny’, adding that they would use ‘every resource in this planet’ to bring her home safe and sound.

Ramsey tweeted: ‘Damnit Boulder get off you’re a** and find this child! Have you ever met a 14yr old kid? Not usually trusted to make sound rational decisions.’

In a statement Boulder Police confirmed that no one has spoken to Chloe since September 30, eight days ago.

They added: ‘Investigators have received some information from friends who appear to have been in contact with Chloe, and there have been a few reported sightings of her in and around the Boulder area.

‘However, no one in her family has spoken with Chloe since Sept. 30.

‘Friends have received messages that they believe could be from Chloe saying she is safe with a “family” in Arizona and does not want to return home, but family and police have been unable to confirm if these messages are, in fact, from Chloe or true.

‘This case presently does not meet the criteria for the issuance of an Amber Alert, but investigators are growing increasingly concerned about the teen’s safety as it is believed that she has no access to money or her medication. She may be with an adult male.

‘Chloe’s loved ones have posted fliers around town, and police are hoping that amplifying this message will help in reuniting the child with her family.

‘Chloe’s family wants Chloe to know that they just want her home safe and that she is not in trouble.’

A statement from Boulder High School added: ‘We have been in close contact with the Boulder Police Department, as they have been investigating a missing BVSD student from Boulder High School who failed to come home after last Friday’s Boulder High vs. Fairview football game (on Sept. 30).

‘While they have classified the case as a runaway, they are now indicating that the student may be in danger, which is why we are reaching out to share the information with our community.

‘Please see the information below from the Boulder Police Department website and if you have any information, please contact Detective Cody Hartkopp with the Boulder Police Department at 303-441-3330.’

Anyone with information should contact Boulder Police Department at 303-441-3333 option 8 and reference case 22-9868 or Chloe’s full name: Chloe Campbell.
