Evans Police with the New York State Police Dive Team and canine unit continue searching the creek along South Creek Road in a remote area of the Town of Evans. They are looking for Angel Leverenz.

Her Honda Accord was found on South Creek Road Thursday afternoon. Her father reported her missing just hours early. He said that he had not seen her since Tuesday when she was leaving in her car to meet friends.

The car was discovered with the doors unlocked and the keys inside along with some person items. There was no purse, wallet or jacket found in the car.

Authorities said more than 40 volunteer firemen were searching a six-mile radius around where the vehicle was found. They said it is a rough and dangerous terrain, especially for someone who doesn't know the area.

"Definitely concerned. We're not sure what could have happened. She could have left the car and went with a friend or she could have gone hiking. That's what we're trying to find out now," Evans Police Captain Charles Danzi said.

The girl's father did not want to speak with the media, but a neighbor tells Channel 7 that the teen is senior at Lakeshore High School. They said her mother passed away several years ago and she lives with her brother and father in Angola.

At this point, police say there is no evidence of foul play. They will resume their search and investigation today. If you have any information call the Evans Police Department at 549-3600.
