ORANGE, Conn. (AP and WTIC staff) _ Authorities are trying to find a teenage boy and girl seen walking near a school, as the search continues for a 12-year-old girl from Orange, who has been missing since Sunday.
Orange police along with state police and the FBI have been looking for Isabella Oleschuk, a seventh grader who may have left her home during the night.
Police said they were made aware of a report of a young male and female walking together near Race Brook School on Granniss Road, near a pond Sunday morning and asked if anyone saw them to contact police at 203-891-2130.
William Reiner, an FBI spokesman, said federal authorities are helping with the search.
The girl is described as white, 5 feet 4 inches, about 120 pounds, with blue eyes and shoulder length blond hair.
She may be wearing a light blue jacket, brown felt hooded cape and black rain boots.
A vigil was planned for this evening at 5:30 at the Orange Congregational Church.
Reverend Tod King said it would be “a gathering of people to be together, to lift up in prayer, in their thoughts, Isabella as we go through this very trying and emotional time for her family, and for the community as well.”
The missing girl’s family worships at the church.
