The Carlisle Police Department released a statement to say Sarah was last seen at her residence at 9:30 pm and last spoken to at 11:30 pm. Authorities also released her physical description. Sarah is 5-feet, 2-inches tall, weighs 113 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She has a tattoo on her right arm of an infinity symbol and the words “Love You More," police said.
Carlisle Police Chief Will Rogers said his officers are following up on tips and have checked several locations, but have not located her. Police have classified Sarah as a "runaway," Rogers said.
"If you see her, please call the local authorities," Mike said in a YouTube video posted Sunday. "I just want my daughter back. I just want her safe."
On Monday, June 28, Mike said in another video that he had driven around for hours searching for her as many tips had come in. However, he broke down when he started talking about the backlash he started facing from trolls online. He said that the reason he was sharing so many updates about the situation was to have more people out there looking for Sarah. Many on social media had accused him of trying to gain clout. "Yesterday, I streamed and I received a lot of hate for me streaming," he shared. "I have driven myself into exhaustion trying to find my daughter. I've used every ounce of what I could do to find her and I don't care about the views. I just want my f***ing daughter back."
On Monday night, he shared a short video on Twitter in hopes that his daughter might see it and return, and that she doesn't have to worry about any repercussions. "This message is for my daughter, Sarah. Please come home. We want to listen to you. Understand what is wrong. We want you safe. If you have her or know where she is. Please, bring her home. Please..." he captioned the tweet. In the accompanying video, Mike said, "We just want you home. Everything can be worked out ... We want to listen to you. We want to understand what's going on. We love you. If you do have her, if you know where she's at, please help us."

The distraught father has requested people to use #FindSarah to spread awareness and information about his daughter. "This has been very emotional and very difficult," he said in a video. "Ultimately, I just want her to be home, I want her safe."
