Clarkston Police, family search for missing teen

- Officers continue to follow up on leads in the disappearance of a DeKalb County teenager.

Family members said Mara Bradley, 17, shut down her social media accounts and left her phone and laptop behind before leaving her father's home in Clarkston Friday. Her parents filed a missing person’s report with the Clarkston Police Department. As of late Monday evening, Bradley has not returned nor reached out to loved ones.

"The idea that she's lost out there is horrifying," said Bradley's father, Michael Bradley.

Loved ones said Bradley is active in the cosplay world and they spent the entire weekend handing out flyers and searching for her at a convention in downtown Atlanta to no avail.

"The world gets really, really big all of a sudden when you can't find your kid," said Teresa Chiofalo, Bradley's mother.

Relatives believe Bradley is with someone who is helping to keep her "off the grid," because she does not have a driver's license or any money.

Chiofalo posted on Facebook about her daughter's disappearance and so far, more than 6,000 people all over the country have shared the online flyer.

Anyone with information about Mara Bradley's case should contact the Clarkston Police Department.
