‘We just need a tip’: Missing Raynham teen in danger, police say – Boston News, Weather, Sports


RAYNHAM, MASS. (WHDH) – A missing 16-year-old girl from Raynham is in danger, according to local police.

Colleen Weaver disappeared from her home between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Tuesday, October 18, and police are “urgently seeking the public’s assistance in locating her”, they said.

“It’s an absolute nightmare,” said Heather McNally, a friend of the family. “At 6 a.m. her mother got up to get her and her brother ready for school and she wasn’t in her room. She left home with nothing – her glasses and the clothes on her back, that was all.

McNally, who now fears the worst, said she and others believed someone had been lured out of her home and she expected to come home.

No one has heard from Weaver since her disappearance, so the police believe she is in danger.

“When a child goes missing, it’s every parent’s worst nightmare,” said Raynham Police Chief James Donovan. “We are using every resource at our disposal to help locate Colleen Weaver and get her home safely. If anyone thinks they have seen it, we ask that you call us immediately.

An investigation indicated that Colleen could have traveled approximately 100 miles from her home, which could include Springfield, Provincetown, Bristol, Connecticut, Hartford, Connecticut, Wells, Maine, Concord, NH, Portsmouth, NH, Manchester, NH, Keene , NH and Brattleboro, Vermont.

Weaver is described as 5ft tall and weighing around 120lbs, with red/pink hair and a pierced nose. She was probably wearing dark glasses and possibly a sweatshirt and leggings when she disappeared.

“There was no word at all, no one saw her, no one heard of her, nothing,” McNally said, adding that silence is out of place for Colleen.

Relatives said she had impulse control issues and feared the teenager could easily be taken advantage of.

“Knowing Colleen – (I) 100% believe she’s at risk,” McNally said. “We think she was planning on meeting someone. She’s definitely not a runaway.

She has been officially listed as missing at the National Crime Information Center as well as the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Raynham Police have been in close contact with local, state and federal partners including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Commonwealth Fusion Center and state police.

“We just need a tip from someone,” McNally said.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts or who may have seen her recently is asked to contact the Raynham Police Department at 508-824-2717 or call 911.
