Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Wednesday were searching for a 13-year-old girl who disappeared from her south Charlotte apartment two days ago.
Kiley Hegger was last seen asleep in her bedroom 11 p.m. Monday at the familys ground-level apartment in a gated community near Providence High School, her mother Lindsay Hegger said.
Her parents realized she was missing when they checked in on her about a half hour later.
They found the window open with a screen knocked out, Hegger said. They dont believe Kiley ran away, because her purse and wallet with cash inside was left behind, Hegger said.
She has no shoes on, no identification, no money, Hegger said. She was looking forward to theater and volleyball tryouts at school.
Kiley is a sixth-grader at United Faith Christian Academy. She had just turned 13 on Sunday, her mother said.
Kiley is 5-feet tall and weighs 100 pounds. She has blue eyes and red hair.
Police are investigating the girls disappearance as a missing persons case but didnt have many other details. Hegger said St. Francis United Methodist Church held a vigil for her daughter Wednesday night and her school plans to hold another Thursday.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts should call CMPD detective E.G. Boulware at 704-336-8970.
