Family’s plea: ‘Caitlin come home’
By GREGG RETTIG
Managing EditorThe Andersons cling to hope — hope that every time the phone rings it may be their missing daughter, Caitlin, on the line.
Caitlin, a 15-year-old London High School freshman, has been missing since early Monday morning.
The Andersons don’t have any idea of where she may be, whom she may be with.
Her dad, Carl, said the circumstances of her disappearance don’t immediately matter. “Just come home, Caitlin,” he said.
“We’re all stressed,” Carl said about his family’s waiting. “We’re doing the best we can.
“We’ve been on pins and needles. Me and my wife (Tonita) didn’t sleep at all the first few nights. We’ve been able to sleep a few hours the last few nights just from exhaustion.”
London Police are investigating the disappearance and “are tracking every lead we can,” LPD chief Dave Wiseman said..
“We’re doing everything we can,” he said. “We’ve gotten phone calls, emails and this has really taken off on the social media.”
Meanwhile, the Andersons, Carl and Tonita and their children, Erica, Jacob, Jordan and Maxwell, sit and wait to hear from the oldest child.
“Before she left, she gave me and my wife a kiss good night and went to bed,” Carl said. “We just want her home. That’s all we want.”
Anyone with any information on Caitlin Anderson is encouraged to call the London Police Department, (740) 852-1414.
