FERRISBURGH — The Vermont State Police announced on Thursday that troopers continued their search for missing Ferrisburgh 17-year-old Hailey Rheaume-Fox, who was first reported missing on Oct. 11.
Det. Sgt. Sam Capagrossi said that since the time of her disappearance it was believed Rheaume-Fox was in the Burlington area with friends avoiding police. Further, police believed she was in contact with her mother through text messages since running away.
After the Addison Independent inquired into the case, VSP issued a release Thursday saying that they had received new information from friends indicating that Rheaume-Fox may not be in possession of her cell phone and the text messages may not have been from her. Capagrossi reported that she may also be traveling back and forth between New York City and Massachusetts.
Rheaume-Fox was described as 5 foot 7 inches tall, weighing 105 pounds, with long, blonde hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion.
Detectives with the Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation continue to investigate this case and will follow up on any leads or sightings.
