In a video, the YouTuber quashed the rumors spreading online that the missing child always wore jackets and hoodies to cover up her bruises. Showing footage of her deboarding the bus, he said, "So here she is, no coat on, no long sleeves on, doesn't appear to be any marks or bruisings or anything on her face or on her arms here in this picture." He continued, "Those are facts we can see physically now. It looks like there's something on her elbow or wrist right here. Just looks like a little red."
The YouTuber added, "The mark doesn't appear to me [like] any signs of abuse or anything like that, so I wanted to point that out to everybody. And the facts of this picture are that there is no abuse marks or anything on her at this time."
Madalina was last seen on November 23 at her home in Cornelius, roughly 20 miles north of Charlotte. Her parents waited until December 15 to report her missing to a school resource officer at Bailey Middle School.
The investigation didn't start until Cojocari arrived at Bailey Middle School on Thursday for a truancy meeting with her daughter. She was meant to bring Madalina to the appointment, but she failed to do so. According to the arrest sheet, Madalina's school counselor summoned the police to the building and pushed Cojocari to file a missing person complaint for her daughter, as reported by the Sun.
