Missing Florida Teen Girl Disappears After Telling Friend Someone Was Following Her

Florida police are searching for a Port St. Lucie teen who vanished Monday morning while walking to school.

A little before 7 a.m. Monday, a friend of 15-year-old Saige Stiles contacted police and said Stiles told her someone had been following her. Police arrived at the scene off of Belmont Circle and Darwin Boulevard and found the teen’s cellphone and backpack on the sidewalk, but no signs of Stiles.

Officers with Port Lucie Police Police Department said that at this time, it’s unclear whether the teen ran away, was abducted, or got in a vehicle.

WPTV posted security footage taken while Stiles was reportedly walking to school. The short footage showed her walking through a backyard alone. No one else was seen with her.

“She just was walking. Didn’t appear she was in danger or distress. Just walking through the backyard,” Sergeant John Dellacroce with Port St. Lucie PD said during a Monday news conference.

Investigators have been speaking with the friend who contacted police, who has reportedly been cooperative in the investigation.

“We urge Saige, if you’re out there, if you’re safe, please call us. You’re not in any type of trouble,” Dellacroce said. “We just want to make sure you’re safe.”

Stiles is currently a student at Treasure Coast High School and lives in the nearby Panther Trace community, according to Dellacroce.

Stiles is described as a white female who stands 5-feet-5 inches tall and weighs around120 pounds. She was last seen wearing jeans and a long-sleeve gray shirt.

Anyone with any information on the teen’s whereabouts is urged to contact 911.
