Colorado teen Chloe Campbell found after 'nightmare' disappearance with 'many unknowns': parents

3 mins read


Colorado police found 14-year-old Chloe Campbell on Monday after she had been missing for 10 days in what her family described as a “nightmare” situation.

Campbell’s disappearance garnered national attention after her parents expressed concern for her safety while the Boulder Police Department (BPD) waited to issue a missing persons report due to the circumstances of her case, which they labeled as a runaway situation. Amber Alerts are not issued for runaways if there is no evidence of an abduction.

“Words cannot describe the relief we feel that Chloe was found and is receiving medical treatment in a safe location,” her family said in a Tuesday update. “We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community, law enforcement agencies, and volunteers that led to Chloe’s return to safety.”

However, her family added that the “nightmare” of a situation is “far from over.”

“There are many unknowns about what happened over the 10 days Chloe was missing and we are continuing to work with law enforcement in support of their ongoing investigation,” they said.

Her family also said they have “credible information” that the 14-year-old “was in harm’s way during her disappearance,” and they “will not stop pursuing the truth in this matter.”
