A 12-year-old Rockland girl who was reported missing Thursday evening has returned home safe and sound, according to the Rockland Police Department.

Megan Seavey said she expected her daughter, Kylie Hooper, to return to their Pleasant Street home around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. When she wasn’t home by 9 p.m., Seavey said, she called Rockland Police to report her daughter missing.

“This isn’t her; she would come home by now,” Seavey said Friday morning. “All her friends are in school, so she isn’t with them. They have been messaging me asking if I’ve found her.”

Seavey said she and the Rockland police spoke with her daughter’s friends and Hooper was last seen by her friends around 5:30 p.m. at Dairy Queen in Rockland. She was wearing brown knee-high boots, jean or black leggings and a blue T-shirt, the mother said.

Seavey said one of her daughter’s friends said an older man approached her daughter and the friend, but the friend ran off. Her daughter does not have a cellphone, but one of Hooper’s friends told the mother there was a Snapchat message sent later Thursday night that had a picture of her daughter with the older man in it.

“There was one with a beer can in it – and my daughter doesn’t drink alcohol, so she was around someone old enough to buy it,” Seavey said. “She doesn’t look 12, she looks 16 or 17, so that scares me.”
