MISSING: Autumn Fitzpatrick, age 14
Accord, New York
According to Ulster County Undersheriff Frank Faluotico, Autumn, a Coleman High School student and member of its tennis team, was reported missing at 7:45 PM yesterday (Friday, October 5, 2012).
Faluotico says that she was seen walking away from Coleman along with a 17-year old boy (Joseph Kearney) that afternoon.
Autumn was taken by Kearney’s grandfather to Hudson Valley Mall, in the town of Ulster, sometime after 2:30 PM. However, they left the mall shortly. Fitzpatrick was last seen walking on Morton Boulevard, a short distance from the mall, after she and Joseph had “a disagreement”.
Autumn’s mother, Carol, says that friends, family, and authorities have searched caves in Rosendale and Kingston, because Fitzpatrick spoke of caves recently. They have also searched Epworth United Methodist Camp, where she went when she was younger. Carol also told deputies that Autumn has left home without warning once before.
Height: 5’ 2"
“Sandy blonde” hair
Weight: about 150 pounds
Last seen wearing a black sweater with a camisole, a multicolored skirt, and black dress shoes
If you have any information on Autumn’s whereabouts, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please call (845) 338-3640 to talk to the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office.
