A heartbroken family are desperately searching for a missing teenager girl who vanished last week after being spotted at a high school football game with two ‘sketchy older men’.

Chloe Campbell, 14, disappeared on September 30 after being spotted at Boulder High School, in Colorado, with her family claiming she may have been trafficked more than 600 miles away to Arizona.

Boulder Police are now calling for anyone with information about the missing schoolgirl to come forward, saying she might be ‘in danger’ despite initially dismissing the case as a ‘runaway’.

Her family are concerned for her welfare, with her mother Dr Jessica Knape confirming that her daughter had not been able to take her medication for her underlying health conditions.

Dr Knape and Chloe’s father, David Campbell, have hired a private investigator to assist them with finding their daughter, who was possibly intoxicated the last time she was seen.

Her family are concerned that she is being kept against her will, and David claims that the only communications the family have received are from ‘third parties’ from a Snapchat profile that ‘could be anybody.’

He added that they received an ominous photo from an anonymous source, which proves that she is still alive, but said that she looked ‘injured and unwell.’

Several friends have reportedly received messages from the missing teenager, but her parents say they have come from social media accounts that they are unfamiliar with.

Her parents launched a desperate attempt to bring their daughter home, by hanging flyers around town with Boulder Police Department only joining the effort to find her eight days later.

In a statement Dr Knape said: ‘Her whereabouts are still unknown to authorities or her family and we believe her to be critically at-risk due to a number of factors.

‘There are friends who say she may be with someone (or several people) who are men, or older boys, who could be involved with drug dealing and who may have violent criminal records.

‘We believe there may be other kids who know where she is or how to reach her, but they are not sharing this information with the family or law enforcement.

‘There is some evidence that they are withholding information out of fear for their own safety.

‘Because Chloe’s case was initially designated as “runaway” and not “missing”, law enforcement and school authorities have downplayed the critical nature of the case, which has caused much angst.

’We are working collaboratively with the authorities to get the case the proper designation and we have retained a private investigator in the interim to continue investigating leads.’

Speaking to Fox News, her father David added: ‘Chloe never came home and we became very concerned, started investigating, and found that she was last seen with two older men.

‘She was described by eyewitnesses as being with two men. Older men. Too old to be in high school. One of whom was Asian and the other who had a beard.
