Original Story

Police in Jacksonville, Florida, are asking for the public’s help in locating a 13-year-old girl that disappeared from her Mandarin home on Saturday night.

WJAX reported that Kyleigh Kosters was last seen at home on Saturday night. The girl’s parents called police at around 8 a.m. Sunday and told officers that pillows were stuffed under the bedsheets to look like the teen was sleeping.

Jacksonville police noted in their report that Kosters’ window was open. Though the home is equipped with surveillance cameras, the 13-year-old wasn’t spotted in any of the footage. Police said, however, that she “is aware of the cameras on the house and the angles they observe,” according to the station.

Kosters has lived with her adopted parents for two years. A missing person flyer claimed that Kosters told a friend that she had recently spotted her biological mother, who possibly lives in the Jacksonville area.

Additionally, that the father allegedly said that Kosters has frequently talked about prostitution and asked him whether they lived a good life. He claimed that he found out that the 13-year-old had searched for “how to find a john” and “what is a pimp” online, according to WTLV.

The station reported that the father also said that Kosters has referred to her biological mother as a prostitute.

Police said that this is the first time Kosters has run away. They mentioned that the teen doesn’t have a cellphone nor any social media accounts that they know of.

Kosters is 5’4″, 125 pounds, and has green eyes and blonde hair. It is unknown what she was wearing but The Aware Foundation wrote that she packed a lot of clothes.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information about Kyleigh Kosters’ whereabouts can contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500.
