Baltimore County police and a distraught family are asking the public to help find a missing 15-year-old Parkville girl.
Brooke Amanda Springer was reported missing from her Acton Road home on Monday at around 11:20 p.m., according to police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.
The girl, who attends , told her father Gregory Springer that she was going to the store at 8206 Harford Road and left home around 6 p.m. May 14. She hasn't been seen or heard from since, according to Rogers-Feher.
The girl's father told police that he took a nap around 6:45 p.m. and when he woke, he noticed Brooke was not back from the store. He tried to contact her via cell phone, but she didn't answer. He then reported his daughter missing, police said.
According to police, the girl recently moved to the Parkville area and doesn't have many friends in town yet. She previously lived in Carroll County and, according to a Facebook post from a user named Jennifer Naylor, she may be either in the Parkville or Manchester area.
Police describe the missing girl as a white female, about 5 feet tall and 110 pounds with a thin build and a fair complexion. She has blue eyes and had black hair at the time of her disappearance, but she may be wearing a straight, brown wig. She has two tattoos—one of three bears on the right side of her ribcage and another on the inside of her right bicep. She also has two piercings, one in the right side of her lower lip and one in her nose.
When she went missing, she was wearing a blue sweatshirt, white shorts and a pair of black and white Hello Kitty slipper boots.
Family members and friends have started a Facebook group dedicated to bringing the girl home.
Police are asking anyone with information about Brooke Springer's location to call the Parkville precinct at 410-887-5310 or to contact Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020.
