Family desperately searching for missing West Virginia teen Riley Crossman

The search for a missing teenager from West Virginia continues. Riley Crossman, 15, disappeared almost a week after being last seen at her home in Berkeley Springs.

Missing flyers are found in almost every store and telephone pole in Berkeley Springs. Since Riley’s family discovered that the teenager had disappeared, searches were conducted daily, but their disappearance remains a mystery.

“When we did not find her at the end of the night, I knew something was really wrong,” said Riley’s father, Lance Crossman.

Crossman has spent the last seven heartbreaking days searching for his missing daughter in the darkest, deepest, and darkest corners of the forest.

“I have to believe in my heart, she’s always fine, she’s still alive, which means that she has to be somewhere, in such huts, sordid motels …” says Crossman, “that’s what happens in your life through rabbit holes, you would never have thought about going underwater … as a father, as a parent … ”

Riley was last seen at her home in Berkeley Springs last Tuesday by her grandmother, who watched her while her mother was working.

“Her mother came home from work later that night and she did not look, but she figured she was in bed, she got up in the morning, Riley was not there, but it’s not unusual, she’s alone and going to school because it’s across the street, “said Crossman.

Hours later, Berkeley Springs High School told the family that Riley never showed up on Wednesday. People who know her say that she would never run alone.

“As we know, we are at a time when teenagers are stuck on their cell phones and there is no mobile activity for Riley since May 8, which is very worrying,” said the sheriff. Morgan County, KC Drill.

Bohrer said they searched Riley’s social media and interviewed his friend, family members, friends and teachers, but have so far no clue or response.

“Whenever you interview a missing person, you worry with the time of a happy ending,” said Bohrer.

“It’s been quite a long time, just let them go and let them come safely to everyone, and if anyone has the opportunity, and they see it, if they could take a minute, kiss your children, kiss your parents and take the time to spread this message to everyone you know, “said Crossman.

Another large-scale search is scheduled for Wednesday morning at 9:00. If you have any information in the meantime, contact the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department.
