Charlotte disappeared while on a bike ride at the campground where she was staying with family and friends, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul told reporters during a news conference Sunday afternoon.

Charlotte was on Loop A at the park, according to police. She went missing after she decided to ride one last loop on her own, Hochul said.

Authorities believe it is “quite possible” an abduction took place because investigators have already completed an “exhausted search” of the state park, New York State Police Lt. Col. Richard Mazzone told reporters.

A New York State Police command post has been established at the state park, Hochul said.

Additional details were not immediately available.
