BLACKSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Blacksburg Police said Thursday that there will be an increased presence in southwest Virginia as the search continues for 13-year-old Nicole Madison Lovell.
Virginia State Police issued an alert for Lovell on Wednesday. Blacksburg Police believe she is in danger because she requires medication daily for a previous liver transplant.
"It's one of the darkest and worst things you can deal with," Blacksburg Police Department Lt. Mike Albert said at a Thursday news conference.
Albert also said the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets will assist in the search.
Nicole was last seen around midnight Wednesday at her home at 1011 Fairfax Road in Blacksburg, Virginia. She is 4'8" tall and weights 125 pounds, has blue eyes and brown hair. Was last seen wearing black jeans, gray striped shirt and brown and pink boots.
If you see Nicole, call the Blacksburg Police Department at 540-961-1150 or Virginia State Police at 1-800-822-4453.
