Madalina Cojocari update: Family of missing 11-year-old North Carolina girl pens handwritten plea for help

CORNELIUS, NC– Police released a handwritten letter written by family members of a missing 11-year-old North Carolina girl.

An intense search was launched this week for Madalina Cojocari, who was last seen on November 23 but was not reported missing until December 15.

On Tuesday, authorities released surveillance video of the girl getting off her school bus on November 21. Her mother and stepfather said they last saw Madalina when she went to bed on November 23.

Madalina’s mother and stepfather said they had a fight and after the Thanksgiving holiday repeatedly wondered where Madalina was and if the other hid her. Both adults told each other that they didn’t know where the girl was, but they hadn’t reported her missing.

More details on the timing of Madalina’s disappearance can be found here.

On Wednesday, the Cornelius Police Department posted a handwritten note on social media saying it came from Madalina’s family. However, the department has not clarified exactly which members of Madalina’s family wrote the letter.

“We as a family are devastated and absolutely heartbroken to learn that Madalina is missing,” the letter said.

“This is something no child or family should ever endure,” the letter said, adding that the family is doing everything they can to find the 11-year-old and bring her home safely.

“Madalina is a beautiful, smart, kind and loving 11-year-old girl with a great future,” the letter reads. “We are desperate to find her now, she needs ALL our help.”

The family urged anyone with information to call investigators immediately.
