Details of Disappearance

Sophie was last seen in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on May 19, 2017. She left her residence at approximately 10:00 p.m. Surveillance video showed her walking past a business between the 100 and 400 blocks of west Davie Boulevard. She left all her belongings behind in her room and has never been heard from again.

Prior to her disappearance, Sophie often hung out in the area of Stranahan High School, which she had attended for a short period. She used the bus to get around. She had transferred to a virtual school and took classes over her computer. Evidence on her computer has lead authorities to believe she may have been the victim of a human trafficker or other online predator.

Sophie had run away once before, but only for a day. She has two cellular phones, but neither of them have been active since her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
