“Were looking for any clues, any disturbed ground, anything that will aid us in the search,” Sgt. Brian Adams from New Hampshire Fish and Game told WMUR.
Kieran Ramsey with the FBI told the local news outlet that over 100 investigators are working to find Celina.
On Thursday, police went door-to-door in the area questioning neighbors regarding any information they may have regarding Celina, going so far as to search local camp grounds.
“We are doing searches of the area. We are talking to people. We are looking at computers. We are looking at phones. We are running the full gamut of law enforcement techniques to try to locate her.” Assistant Attorney General Jane Young told WMUR.
Reports have surfaced that court records indicate Celina’s stepfather, Wendell Noyes, has a questionable past filled with mental illness and criminal activity.
Celina’s family home now has crime scene tape cordoning it off and some media reports indicate her family has moved out of the house.
Celina is described as 5’5” and 95 pounds, having brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, a pink pullover, blue shorts and shoes.
Authorities are urging anyone with information about Celina to call New Hampshire State Police at 603-846-3333.
