The search is intensifying for a teenager who has been missing from her Taylor, Michigan home for almost two weeks now.
Fifteen-year-old Gloria Alvarado went to sleep in her room on the night of Sunday, November 1.
When her mom went to wake her up for school the next day, however, Alvarado was no longer there. Additionally, the window screen in her room was cut and her cell phone was left behind, immediately raising concern.
‘Where ever she is I hope she is ok,’ Tina Alvarado, Gloria’s mother, told FOX 2. ‘I just want my baby back and I want her to call me.’

Gloria is reportedly a straight-A student who has rarely left home since the onset of the pandemic.
Police were able to acquire a 14-second video from a neighbor from the night Gloria went missing.
That video shows a car pulling up to the Alvarado household around 1am and a man exiting the vehicle before the video ends.
According to The News-Herald, a vigil was held for Gloria on Thursday at James E. Boardman Park. Over 100 people attended.
‘We drive around all night,’ Gloria’s father, Ramon, told The News-Herald. ‘All day, all night. I miss my baby.’
‘Gloria is basically a homebody,’ Tina Alvarado said to The News-Herald. ‘We do stuff as a family. She was a straight A student. She was in the band at her school, and she had been cheerleading since she was 5 years old. She was happy-go-lucky.

ClickOnDetroit reports the mother of Marissa Peters, who has been missing since May 31, and of Alexis Barbuzinski, who has been missing since November 10, also attended the vigil.
The family claims there is no history of Gloria running away or having any reason to do so, increasing fear that she may have been abducted from the home.
Police in Taylor are reportedly working with other agencies to locate Gloria, who is approximately 5 foot 2 inches tall and 168 pounds.
‘I have faith she will be found,’ Tina Alvarado says.
