The family has been handing out fliers all over town and in New York City.
Police in Ridgefield, N.J., do not think Iana was kidnapped. But Iana’s father said his daughter is not the type to run away.
Iana is 5 feet 3 inches tall and might be wearing a dark blue hoodie and tight, ripped jeans with black sneakers.
“Daddy’s here. I love you. I miss you,” Ian Darlington said. “We all miss you.”
It’s the last time anyone has seen Iana, described as Hispanic, 5’2″ and 110 lbs. with brown eyes and black hair. She was wearing a navy blue cheerleading sweatshirt with blue jeans, and black sneakers with blue bottoms, according to police.
Ridgefield police do not suspect foul play is involved. There were no signs of forced entry at the home, and it appeared that Iana took a change of clothes as well as an iPod, Quiles said.
“It seems like she stepped out of the house on her own accord,” Quiles said. “The problem lies between her stepping outside the house and the commute to school, which is only four or five blocks. That’s where things start getting blurry.”
Anyone with information was asked to call Ridgefield police, at (201) 943-5410.
