    MOREAU, N.Y. (AP) — Drones, bloodhounds and an airboat were used in the search for a missing 9-year-old girl who had been camping with her family in upstate New York, officials said Sunday.

    Charlotte Sena was last seen bicycling on Saturday evening in Moreau Lake State Park, about 35 miles (60 kilometers) north of Albany, and police said it was possible she was abducted.


    She had been riding her bike around a loop in the bucolic park with other children when she decided to ride around one more time by herself. Her parents became alarmed when the fourth-grader failed to come back after 15 minutes, Gov. Kathy Hochul said at a briefing Sunday.

    The girl’s mother called 911 after her bicycle was found about 6:45 p.m. Saturday.

    Officials issued an Amber Alert on Sunday morning after an exhaustive search because “it was quite possible that an abduction had taken place,” state police Lt. Colonel Richard Mazzone said. The alert describes her as a white girl with blonde hair and green eyes, about 4 feet 6 inches tall (1.37 meters).

    The more than 100 searchers on Sunday included police, forest rangers and civilians.

    “We are leaving no stone, no branch, no table, no cabin unturned, untouched, unexamined in our search to find Charlotte,” said Hochul, who described her as a “joyful” girl who was recently elected a class officer for student council.

    The girl, a resident of nearby Greenfield, was last seen wearing an orange tie-dye Pokemon shirt, dark blue pants, black Crocs and a grey bike helmet.

    Our society (?) has become more and more dangerous and threatening, as per chazal and so many Torah sources predicted millenia ago. Parents beware and don’t adopt the mindset that these things happen ‘by yenim’. Hashem yeracheim. Hope this horror story will have a happy ending !

    Amar Rabbi Binyamin, hakol bechezkat soomin ad sheHakadosh Baruch Hu meir et eineihem, min hacha: vayifkach Elohim et eineyhah vtelech vatimaleh et hachemet.

    Rabbi Binyamin said: All are presumed blind until the Holy One, blessed be He, enlightens their eyes. We know this from the verse: “G-d opened her eyes and she went and filled up the water skin.

    God of Meir, answer me. God of Meir, answer me. God of Meir, answer me. In the merit of the charity which I am donating for the sake of the soul of Rabbi Meir the Miracle Worker may Charlotte bat David Sena and all who are missing be found

    Found in good condition. I don’t want to say “unharmed” as that would be speculation.
