The father of missing New Hampshire girl Celina Cass said he wants her to come home.
"Come home," said Adam Laro, in an ABC news report. "Whenever you are ready to come home, daddy is ready for you."
Laro was in the hospital when his daughter went missing, according to The Associated Press, which reported that Celina Cass lived with her mother and stepfather.
Celina Cass, 11, has been missing for almost one week. She was last seen around nine p.m. on July 25 in her West Stewartstown, N.H. home. She is about 5 feet 5 inches tall, with long, brown hair and hazel eyes and was seen wearing a pink shirt, pink pullover, blue shorts and shoes before she went missing, according to the FBI.
The FBI announced a $25,000 reward for information that could lead to her whereabouts and the arrests/prosecution of those involved in her disappearance.
The FBI is helping the New Hampshire State Police with the investigation into the girl's disappearance. So far, the FBI has deployed its Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team, which is made up of four to six Crimes Against Children investigators who have in-depth experience in child abduction cases, according to the FBI.
This team will provide on-the-ground investigative, technical, and resource assistance to state and local law enforcement, the FBI said in a statement.
