Police said, "Investigators have received some information from friends who appear to have been in contact with Chloe, and there have been a few reported sightings of her in and around the Boulder area. However, no one in her family has spoken with Chloe since Sept. 30. Friends have received messages that they believe could be from Chloe saying she is safe with a 'family' in Arizona and does not want to return home, but family and police have been unable to confirm if these messages are, in fact, from Chloe or true."

She may be with an adult male," stated the police. David confirmed that neither he nor Knape has had any contact with her since her disappearance.
