A 15-year-old California teenager goes missing at Denver International Airport
A teenager who was returning to her California home is said to have never returned, with authorities saying she was last seen at a layover at Denver International Airport.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reported that 15-year-old Harper Cadman went missing at Denver International Airport on January 30.
“Harper never boarded her flight back home and is believed to still be in the Denver or Boulder, Colorado area,” said a statement from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The agency said the teenager was last seen when she landed in Denver around 8:27 a.m. on January 30 to move back to California.

In a Facebook post, Cadman’s mother, Ari Petronelli, wrote a heartfelt message about her daughter’s disappearance.
“I’m sick to my stomach writing this, and I never thought I’d have to post another flyer of my own child missing, but if the last year has taught me anything, it’s that life doesn’t just make sense,” Petronelli wrote in a Facebook post.
Petronelli explained that her daughter was returning to their home in California from Montana, but never made the connecting United Airlines flight.
She said her daughter was attending a mental health treatment center in Montana at the time of the incident.
“As many of you know, Harper was receiving treatment for mental health last year and while she was being moved from Montana back to California, she disappeared while in transit to the Denver airport on 1/30 at 8:30 a.m. from a United Airlines flight,” Petronelli explained.
Cadman is said to be 5’7″ and about 115 pounds.
She has blue eyes and black hair. Her nose is pierced, and she has tattoos on her middle and middle finger of her left hand. She also has braces.

According to her family, she doesn’t know anyone in Colorado.
