Parents of 14-Year-Old Girl Who Went Missing After School Are 'Extremely Concerned'
A 14-year-old has gone missing in Brooklyn and her family says they are "extremely concerned."
Jenna Hospedales walked away from Brooklyn Technical High School around 3 p.m. last Thursday on her way to catch the G train, and she hasn’t been seen since, according to the New York City Police Department.
“We will not stop until she is back home safely,” Crystal Hospedales, Jenna’s cousin told WCBS. “She is not a child who is super on social media. She’s not a child that dates. She’s not a child that has a wild side. She has never left home, so we are extremely concerned.”
Police are using social media to help search for the teen, and Jenna’s photo has been shared widely after NYPD’s 77th precinct tweeted out an alert.

"I hope she comes home," her mother, Jennelle Hospedales, told WCBS Sunday. "That's all I want. I want my baby home."
