The investigation to find missing Longwood student Angelica “AJ” Hadsell is currently in week three and police still don’t know much about her disappearance—if they do, any information regarding leads has yet to be released.
AJ disappeared March 2 and hasn’t been seen since. According to a report by NBC News, AJ’s family believes she is in dire need of saving.
"She was telling and texting her cousin and her friends she was having these issues with him and he wouldn't leave her alone," Wesley Hadsell, AJ’s father told NBC, referring to a possible suspect. "She was scared of a situation."
In an interview aired on Case to Case, Mr. Hadsell explained that directly before AJ disappeared, she borrowed “a couple hundred dollars” from him. After a few days of searching, one of AJ’s friends found her credit card cut up.
According to Examiner, information has surfaced involving authorities finding one of AJ’s jackets in the possession of an “unidentified person of interest.”
A neighbor reportedly recently saw Anjelica driving quickly away from her home, being followed by a white car—the same car formerly spotted in AJ’s driveway.
The Hadsell family announced they would reward $3000 to anyone with knowledge or tips regarding AJ’s disappearance.
Norfolk Police told The Rotunda the investigation is still ongoing, and still haven’t declared ‘foul play’ to be a factor in AJ’s whereabouts.
The Hadsell family recently created a ‘gofundme’ page, which has raised over $5,000 through donations that will go directly to helping find AJ.
AJ is described as 5’6” tall, weighs about 120 lbs—she has hazel eyes and dark brown wavy hair. If anyone has any information about AJ’s whereabouts, it is requested they share the information with Norfolk Police 1 (888) 562-5887.
#BringAJhome is the hashtag being used to create and curate awareness about AJ’s disappearance. The Facebook page ‘Bring AJ Home’ now has over 10,000 likes and communicates information and news about AJ to supporters.
