BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - It's been two and a half months since the family of a 17-year-old Broken Arrow girl reported her missing.
Weeks later, her family is frustrated and looking for answers.
Paige Moore's parents are afraid she got caught up with the wrong crowd and they're worried something bad has happened to her.
Just five days after Paige Moore's 17th birthday, her dad Michael reported her missing.
Moore says Paige was supposed to go to summer school that day. But early in the morning, there was no sign of her.
"She left in some house shoes, a pair of boxers, and a T-shirt, and that's what she typically slept in," he said.
Her cell phone was gone. But her parents didn't think she ran away.
"That's not like her at all. To leave everybody worrying about her, all of her friends, all of her family," said Bobbie Moore, Paige's stepmom.
Now her parents wonder if Paige got caught up with drug dealers or even human trafficking.
"This group of kids, she'd only been hanging out with for probably a month," said Michael Moore. "And they were not very good kids. And unfortunately, we were not paying attention. And we were not able to stop that before it was too late."
Police believe Paige left on her own free will. They say they've investigated hundreds of leads. But they're not sure whether foul play is involved. Now their leads have run dry.
"In this particular case, it's unusual because we haven't heard anything from her. We haven't had any activity on a cell phone, friends or family have not heard from her either," said Major Mark Irwin.
It's Michael's birthday, but he still hasn't heard from her. So her family continues to plead for help to bring Paige home.
"Somebody out there knows something. She didn't just vanish into thin air," Bobbie Moore said. "Somebody knows something, and they just need to understand that we're not giving up."
