14 year old still missing after 3 weeks

Alieya Lanza

Fourteen year old Alieya Lanza, a student of Anglican Cathedral College, was reported missing by her parents a little over three weeks ago. Alieya went missing along with fifteen year old Paula Gentle. Since then her family has been searching tirelessly to locate her despite their belief that she may have ran away with a boyfriend.  All attempts to call the teenager’s cellular number, according to her mother, have resulted in the young man answering the cell phone.  Today she made an impassioned plea for the safe return of her daughter.
