Wayland Patch 11/14/11: Father Says Missing Wayland Teen ‘Obviously Has Help’. New York Police continue to search for 13-year-old Allie Loftis, who is believed to have run away from her home in Wayland on Friday, Nov. 4.
Allie’s father, Tony, said that he agrees with New York authorities that the situation has changed given the length of time his daughter has been able to remain hidden in spite of the large number of people looking for her.
Loftis said it now seems likely that Allie was “lured” to New York City. He said that he and his wife made a practice of monitoring their daughter’s Facebook and other online activity, and they have no ideas regarding who she may have traveled to the city to meet. Even so, Loftis said it seems unlikely, regardless of how much money his daughter took with her from Wayland, that she remains on her own.
