From Lynna Long on Facebook
: Please anybody who is from Bailey, Colorado I need your help. My sister Maggie Long is missing. If you have seen or heard from her please contact the police, and my sister Connie Long. PM for her cell phone. The time is of the essence. She is 17 yo, Asian Female, long brown hair with blonde highlights. She was supposed to be at the high school concert tonight, ANY DETAILS are welcome
No updates as of this morning other than there was apparently a fire near Maggie's home yesterday. We don't know if that is related or not, but her car is still at the house so she didn't drive anywhere.
She was the one who organized the concert at Platte Canyon HS last night and for her to not be there, and suddenly missing, is very uncharacteristic of her according to friends and family. The Speech Club was supposed to leave for a trip this morning and canceled going to stay and look for their teammate. She is an active member of The Venue Theatre and they are worried too. Please boost her picture, share this info, and keep an eye out for her. We've not heard if the Park County Sheriff's Office will be issuing an Amber Alert or any info, but we assume that they have been alerted and are investigating her disappearance and the fire. We'll post updates as we hear more.
"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther

The Park County Sheriff's is activatly working a crime scene off of County 43 and as of this time there are no search parties being organized however if in the event one is needed in the near future the Park County Sheriff's office will ask for volunteers.q
We do not know if this is in regards to Maggie or not, no official word has been given, nor has an Amber Alert been issued.

Thank you everyone for all your support this far, and the outpouring of help has been overwhelming.
Right now we are focused on Maggie’s communications from after school (approx 2:30pm) until 8pm. If you had any contact please reach out. If you have heard anything strange or seen anything out of the ordinary, it might be a significant detail. Please help us to fill in the gap.

Per the Park County Sheriff's Office: "Do to the serious nature of this investigation. We ask that you keep the Long Family in your prayers. We are not able to release any further information at this time."
The Park County Sheriff's Office is aware of the community's frustrations at the lack of information that they've been able to share; they ask that you please be patient and bear with them as they conduct the investigation with CBI. They will communicate more as soon as they are able.
UPDATE: The ParkCo Sheriff's Office is still investigating the disappearance of Platte Canyon HS student #MaggieLong. While a proper update from the dept. was expected this A.M., the sheriff has since told me that he's still unable to release any further information. /1
No press conference about the #MaggieLong is expected to take place today. However, we (@CanyonCourier, @djswearingen, @MHicks12571 and the rest of us) will do our best to keep you updated on the latest developments. /-fin-
