A Farmingville woman says she has not seen or heard from her 15-year-old daughter since early Sunday morning, and Suffolk County Police are currently trying to find her.
According to Christina Papik, her daughter Ailsa left home at around 3 a.m. on Sunday after calling a taxi cab to come pick her up. Papik said her daughter divulged to her younger sister, 14, with whom she shares a room, that she had been in communication with a grown man she had met online.
"I have no idea where my daughter is," Christina Papik told Patch over the phone Tuesday evening of Ailsa, who is a freshman at Sachem East High School. "I have not received a single word from her. Not an email, not a text, not a phone, nothing. She was apparently talking to the person after midnight when I was sleeping."
Papik added that Ailsa left without her asthma medication, which she needs to take every four hours. She also indicated that there is a possibility the man Ailsa was speaking to was taking her to Brooklyn, although a friend of Ailsa told her it was Staten Island.
Suffolk Police would only say that they are investigating the matter and are asking anyone with information about Ailsa's whereabouts to contact them.
Ailsa is 5-foot-3 and 110 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. She has a scar on her chin and when last seen, she was wearing a zip-up black hoodie, gray pants and white/gray Jordan sneakers.
Patch will have more on this story as it develops.
