Federal agents were seen canvassing neighborhoods in the Kingsessing section of Southwest Philadelphia over the weekend for surveillance cameras pertaining to the disappearance of Riley Harkins, yc.news has learned. What’s more, authorities believe the missing high school student is being held against her will.

“They [were] going to all of the local businesses,” a local bartender told yc.news. The man noted authorities did not disclose any information pertaining to the missing high schooler.

Wednesday marks 12 days since the 15-year-old freshman left her home with a friend. Authorities tell yc.news

As we previously reported, Harkins was reported missing on Sunday Sept. 24 after not returning home with a friend. Her friend returned home days later, but authorities’ fears worsened when Harkins wasn’t alongside her.

The investigation was initially labeled a runaway juvenile, but investigators are alarmed Riley has not returned home, leading them to believe she is being held against her will.

The friend told police that the two had been taken to a home in the Kingsessing section of Southwest Philadelphia and police sources believe the missing teen is possibly being held against her will.

It’s been nearly two weeks since Riley disappeared, and authorities are desperate for clues. According to sources close to the investigation, the FBI joined state and local law enforcement officers to track down leads on Riley’s whereabouts.

If you know anything or see anything, police urge you to call 911.
