FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A teenager hasn’t been seen or heard from in two days and her family is desperately trying to locate her.
Police officials said Shaina McBride, 14, was last seen August 15, 2014 in the area of Isle of Venice and Las Olas Boulevard around 9 a.m.
McBride’s father said she walked off the boat where the two have lived for the past six years and never came back.
“She took absolutely nothing off the boat not even a charger for her phone. She didn’t take clothes or a toothbrush which says this child did not positively, did not decide when she walked off that boat that she was going anywhere,” said David McBride.
Her father fears the worst.
“Something happened when she walked off that boat that changed the whole outcome of what happened. We don’t know what that something was,” said McBride.
Famiy and friends say Shaina was very active in her church, but no one has heard from her since she disappeared. Now, members of the church are passing out fliers trying to find her.
“Just very bizarre to me she had no shoes, her purse and everything is there, terrified something really bad has happened to her,” said family friend, Doneille Kazim.
McBride is approximately 5’ 6” tall, around 145 pounds, has blonde hair and green eyes.
“Somewhere when that child came off my boat, someone had to see someone had to see whether someone took her or in what direction was it out toward parking lot, whatever it is somebody had to see something,” added David McBride. ” I would say to someone who has her or has her captive or keeping her from coming back keeping her from whatever that they would let her go so she can go on with there life. (Does) not matter what at this point has happened let the child go on with your life and let her go, I don’t care if you ever ever get caught.”
