Denise Allen said she also saw her 14-year-old daughter using her cell phone and writing in her notebook the last time she saw her, early on the morning of Aug. 16.
Sanise enjoys writing and even won an award for a writing sample last year, so seeing her write in her notebook isn’t uncommon, Allen said.
Sanise, who would be a freshman at Nansemond River High School this year, has been missing for more than a week from the family’s apartment on Barclay Place in North Suffolk. Both Virginia State Police and Virginia Missing Children Clearinghouse have sent out an endangered missing child alert.
The young girl has a fun-loving, creative personality, Allen said. Along with writing, she also enjoys art.
Sanise had repeatedly good grades in school and had never been in trouble, according to her mother.
Allen said Sanise has a 3-year-old sister as well as another sibling on the way.
The teen is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and about 94 pounds, according to the state police. Other notable features include a scar above her right eye and likely one on her back due to a recent back surgery.
Allen said due to her daughter’s scoliosis, she was not active in any sports, though she had previously been involved in various styles of dancing, gymnastics and ballet.
“I believe she was lured out of the house,” Allen said. She said Sanise had recently been in contact with a modeling agent. However, she is not sure that is where her daughter went or that the person she was in contact with is in fact a modeling agent.
Sanise left a note behind saying she would be “fed, protected and safe.” The note also said that she would be in Florida.
Allen wanted to tell her daughter the following statement: “We love you. We’re waiting for you to call or come home. Mistakes happen and we learn from our mistakes and move on.” She also wanted her daughter to know that her family and friends are all worried about her.
When last seen, Sanise was wearing red pajamas with pink hearts, a tank top, a black hoodie and flip-flops. She has a prescription for Prozac but does not have it with her, police said.
Anyone with information should contact Detective Matthew Fabion of the Suffolk Police Department, 757-377-6746, or the Virginia State Police at 1-800-VACHILD (1-800-822-4453).
