New York State Police are searching for a 9-year-old girl who they said was abducted Saturday night while she was camping with her family.

She is 4 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 90 pounds, and she has blond hair, according to information provided by police.

State police activated an Amber Alert shortly after 9:30 a.m. local time Sunday, saying it was “for a child abduction” that occurred around 6:45 Saturday night.

“The child was taken under circumstances that lead police to believe that they are in imminent danger of serious harm and/or death,” the Amber Alert says.

Lt. Col. Richard Mazzone told reporters Sunday after their “exhaustive search” of the park that police had determined it was “quite possible” Charlotte was abducted.

“We just want her returned safely like any parent would. No tip is too small, please call if you know anything at all,” the Sena family said in a statement provided to NBC News.
