The father of 16-year-old Kayla Campbell, who was last seen two days ago at her North Carolina home, tells ABC News he’s more optimistic today that his daughter is alive.
“The authorities have jumped on everything and are doing a great job,” said Robert Campbell. “It’s been very hard, but my family is staying strong.”
On Monday, police located Kayla’s cell phone, backpack, shoes, and bicycle in a wooded area near her home in Mint Hill, N.C., a suburb of Charlotte.
Kayla was last seen Sunday afternoon when she left home for a bike ride, something that was not out of the ordinary. Her parents told her to return home at 5:15 p.m. when it started to get dark, but she did not.
“We called her at 5:20 p.m. and she said she was close-by,” said the girl’s father. “But, we didn’t feel like she was telling the truth.”
Campbell used location software he had installed on Kayla’s phone to track her down.
“We became concerned when the GPS on her phone showed her being in one area and she told us she was in another. She’s not great with directions,” said Campbell.
When the Campbell’s called Kayla back, her phone had been turned off and that’s when he notified police.
“At this time, we have no reason to believe there was an abduction,” said Mint Hill Police Lt. J.K. Rowell.
Campbell admits he was concerned about some relationships Kayla had been having with people on the Internet.
“We were just dealing with the emotions of a teenager, having to do with some online relationships on a Tumblr page,” said Campbell. “These relationships were not healthy.”
Tumblr is an online social networking site that allows its users to create their own, sometimes private blogs to share personal content.
Campbell wouldn’t comment on a news report Monday that Kayla was “battling depression.”
“I’m not going to talk about her personal history,” he told ABC News.
Mint Hill Police joined by fire search and rescue personnel combed the wooded area again Tuesday, which is located a mile and a half from Kayla’s home.
Canines and divers searched a nearby pond and the FBI was on site, helping with the investigation.
Kayla Campbell is approximately 5’6″ tall, weighs 115 pounds, has long brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information on the teen’s whereabouts is asked to call Mint Hill Police at 704-545-1085.
As for her family, they believe Kayla may be some place close-by and are praying she comes home soon.
“All the people in her life love her,” said Campbell, choked up on the phone. After a brief pause, Campbell said, “We need her to come home.”
Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life. Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.
11 (K is the 11th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 25 (y is the 25th letter of the alphabet) = 37
So the number 37 rules her first twenty-seven years of life.
37 = Her father. Robert Campbell.
