Hailey Burns is a 16 year old girl who vanished after walking out of her home in Charlotte, North Carolina on May 23 2016. Her mother checked all the doors the night before and they were all locked, but when her family tried to wake Hailey up for school the next morning, she was gone and the front door was wide open. Her father says she left a diary behind that had a detailed plan to run away with a 32-year-old man she met online. Hailey has Asperger Syndrome and has had behavioral issues in the past. Her family did everything they could to stop this from happening, but it still did.
There is very little media coverage about this, but what we do know is Hailey’s parents tried to eliminate all social media from their home.They were very strict with phone and computers usage but it is thought that Hailey used her friends phone or the school’s computer. Hailey also had several severe medical conditions that require medication, but she didn’t take any of them with her.
Hailey is 5’4” (1.63m), 130lbs (59kg) and has curly, brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black long sleeved shirt with Marilyn Monroe on it, and Converse tennis shoes. She may be wearing a blue book bag with flowers on it.
If you have any information about Hailey’s whereabouts, please contact the FBI’s Charlotte Field Office at (704) 672-6100 or the Charlotte-Mecklenburgh Crime Stoppers tip line at (704) 334-1600.
