Illinois Teen Went Missing after Leaving Her High School in Missouri

The authorities are currently looking for a missing teenage girl named Emma Roberts, who disappeared after being seen leaving her high school in Wisconsin.

Emma was last spotted at the end of the school day last Wednesday in Salem. It has been reported that the girl's family has recently moved across the state line into unincorporated Antioch, Illinois.

However, despite the move,it was decided that it was best to keep her enrolled at Central High School District of Wetosha. So far, there are no leads regarding her whereabouts.


According to the Lake County Sheriff's Office, it is believed that Emma was given a ride home, where she packed a bag before her family had the chance to come home.

When they arrived, the teenager was nowhere to be found and, as of right now, it is impossible to say what she is wearing since she packed a change of clothes.
