MOREAU, N.Y.- A search is underway for 9-year-old Charlotte Sena. State Police said she may have been abducted from a campsite at Moreau Lake State Park. She was last seen around 6:45 p.m. Saturday in the area of Loop A, Site 18 at the park.
State Police believe Charlotte is in serious danger, in part due to the overnight low temperatures. An Amber Alert was sent out Sunday morning.
Multiple agencies including State Police, Forest rangers, sheriff’s deputies, and park police were searching the more than 6,000 acres of woods surrounding Moreau Lake State Park just after sunset Saturday assisted by bloodhounds and infrared drones.
Charlotte’s family was on a two-night camping trip when she went for a bike ride alone and never returned to the campsite, police told Dan Levy. The Times Union first reported that Charlotte’s bicycle was later found. State Police have confirmed this detail.
Charlotte is described as a bright young lady and an experienced outdoors person. It would be out of character for her to run away.
Charlotte is described at 4’6″ tall with blonde hair, weighing about 90 pounds. She was last seen wearing an orange tie-dye Pokemon shirt, dark blue pants, black Crocs, and a gray bicycle helmet.
Information about Charlotte’s possible abduction, or reported sightings can be reported to the New York State Police at 518-457-6811, or by dialing 911.
