Crystal Lake Police- Missing Teenager Found


UPDATE: Police have located Charity Parker.  She is safe and will soon be reunited with her family.  The investigation remains active; however, there are no further details to release at this time.  The original release follows. 




On June 10, 2017, the family of 15-year-old Charity Parker reported her as missing from their home located in the 1300 block of Mulberry Lane in Crystal Lake.  Her family last saw her the night before.  The Crystal Lake Police Department has since actively and aggressively investigated the circumstances surrounding her unexpected departure from her home.  We do not suspect Charity’s disappearance was the result of foul play; however, we share in her family’s concern for her well-being.  Crystal Lake detectives are pursuing a number of leads at this time. 


Family members described Charity as being five feet tall and weighing approximately 128 pounds.  She has fair skin, blue eyes, and blond hair.  A recent picture of Charity has been attached below.  


We encourage anyone who may have information relating to the whereabouts of Charity to contact the Crystal Lake Police Department at 815-356-3620.  In addition, anyone with a cell phone can send an anonymous tip to the Crystal Lake Police Department by texting the word CLPDTIP along with the tip information to 847411 (tip411).  Normal text messaging rates do apply.
