‘Just come home!’ Mom of missing Raynham teen speaks out after daughter last seen 10 days ago

RAYNHAM, Mass. — The FBI is working with local police to find a 16-year-old girl who disappeared more than a week ago, Raynham Police Chief James Donovan said.

Colleen Weaver was last seen at home in the early morning hours of Oct. 18. Investigators do not believe Weaver is alone and could be as far away as New Hampshire or Connecticut.

“We believe she left with someone,” Donovan said. “She has no resources that we know of. We don’t think she has any money. She doesn’t have any way to pay for anything. She has no means of communication. It’s now been nine days and as far as we know she doesn’t even have anything to dress for the weather.”

Hundreds gathered outside the First Congregational Church in Raynham Thursday night to pray for Colleen’s safe return. Her mother, Kristen Weaver, broke down in tears after thanking supporters.

“I just want her home. Enough is enough. I want to wake up from this nightmare,” Kristen said.

Kristen said her daughter has special needs from a neurological disorder that impacts her decision making. Colleen has never runaway from home and can be very trusting of strangers, she said.

“There’s just something missing that connects the dots of action and consequence. She doesn’t sense danger very well, so she is very trusting,” Kristin said. “Her decision making skills are not great. Her impulsivity is pretty high.”

Donovan said his department has received around 75 tips but there are no persons of interest. Kristen had a simple message for her daughter.

“I keep saying it: Just come home. Find someone to help you come home,” she said.
