LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – “What happened to her?” asks a friend.
Ebby Steppach, 18, disappeared a week ago. Fellow classmates at Central High and the girl’s family are anxiously awaiting and hoping for her return.
“One of my friends I mean we don’t talk that much but he had seen her,” says Mikayla Davidson.
Davidson goes to Robinson High School, and said she first heard about Ebby’s disappearance on social media.
Now a week later, the hashtag, #findebbyjane is mentioned in several posts hoping for her return.
“I saw a lot of posts like ‘girl gone missing, spread the word, find out what happened, if you’ve seen her report it’,” adds Mikayla.
Little Rock Police reported Friday that Ebby’s 2003 Volkswagen Passat was found parked in the area of Cantrell and Chenal Parkway.
Police said they cannot give an exact location right now, but we know it’s near a Walmart and a few gas stations.
“It’s greatly concerning to me because I have five daughters of my own,” says Mikayla’s mother Clarissa.
Clarissa heard the news from her kids, and can only imagine what Ebby’s parents are going through.
“It makes me want to hold my girls a little closer, yet you want to give them freedom but there’s more and more people out there you can’t trust,” adds Clarissa.
Little Rock Police say there is no sign right now of suspicious activity and no alerts have yet been issued. Mikayla said she hopes Ebby is found soon.
“I don’t know what happened so it would be scary,” says Mikayla.
