RIDGEFIELD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A 13-year-old girl from Bergen County, N.J. has been missing since Tuesday morning, and her family was getting desperate a day and a half later.

As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported Wednesday night, Iana Darlington’s mother went to work early on Tuesday morning, but spoke to her daughter on the phone around 7 a.m.

At 10 a.m., Iana’s mother got a call from the school that her daughter never showed up.

Iana has not been heard from since. Her father, Ian Darlington, said he can’t sleep.

“I feel like I’m leaving out of here,” Ian Darlington said.

The family has been handing out fliers all over town and in New York City.

Police in Ridgefield, N.J., do not think Iana was kidnapped. But Iana’s father said his daughter is not the type to run away.

Iana is 5 feet 3 inches tall and might be wearing a dark blue hoodie and tight, ripped jeans with black sneakers.

“Daddy’s here. I love you. I miss you,” Ian Darlington said. “We all miss you.”

Anyone with information was asked to call Ridgefield police, at (201) 943-5410.
