13-Year-Old Girl from Dayville Found Safe

Update: Abaynesh "Abby" May was found safe on Thursday.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is asking for the public's help finding a 13-year-old girl who has been missing from Dayville since Sunday, and now her father has a message for his daughter: He just wants her to come home.

Abaynesh "Abby" May jumped out of a window sometime between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. and is believed to have gotten into an unknown vehicle, according to her dad.

Police brought in search dogs, but lost her scent on a nearby road, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said in a release.

Her father said that she left a note when she left, but they are not sure the circumstances or where she was planning to go.

"We want to get a message out to Abaynesh that we love her and we really want her to come home. Whatever circumstances that drive you to run, to go away, we can work out. We just really want you to come home," he said.

Abby did not take her glasses, which she needs and she does not have a phone, her dad added. He said she does not have a cell phone.

"To anybody who may have taken her or picked her up or whatever she could be with, just understand that you have a beautiful young little girl there. She’s very naïve for her age. She’s homeschooled. But she’s articulate and bright and she’s really loved by her family and friends and we really want her home," he said.

She is 5'1" and weighs 90 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Abby was last seen wearing unknown clothing with white sneakers.

A Silver Alert has also been issued for Abby.

If you have any information, you should call 911, NCMEC at 1-800-843-5678 or Connecticut State Police at 860-779-4900.
