WEATHERSFIELD, Vt. — The parents of a 17-year-old Weathersfield girl who was last seen nearly a week ago are pleading for her safe return.

The Valley News reports ( ) police are searching for Autumn Sanville, a Springfield High School junior.

Police said Wednesday that Sanville made several comments to friends that she was planning to run away.

They said she was last seen on Oct. 6 getting into a vehicle with three people.

Her parents say there’s been no activity on Sanville’s cellphone — which they say is out of character for her. Her locked car was found with the contents of her school bag inside.

Sanville is 5-foot-4, 120 pounds with long brown hair and green eyes. Anyone with knowledge of her whereabouts is urged to contact Vermont State Police.
