Investigators believe teenager left with man she met on Internet

A 17-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident is believed to be missing after the teenager allegedly took off Saturday evening with a man she met on the Internet.

Erica Kennedy was last seen getting into a blue truck at approximately 11 p.m. Saturday. Kennedy's mother Lizz Bedolla said police interviewed a friend of her daughter's who said Kennedy had been talking to an older man online for some time.

Police also told Bedolla the man gave her daughter a cell phone a couple months ago but instructed her not to give the number to anyone.

"She left a note saying she was going to call me tomorrow, which would have been Sunday, and I have not heard one word from her," Bedolla said. "It's breaking my heart."

Bedolla said she believes her daughter was wearing a black Belleville High School sweatshirt and carrying a backpack when she left Saturday.

The Washtenaw County Sheriff's department said all indications currently show Kennedy left on her own accord and have classified the case as a runaway.

However, Bedolla said the whole scenario is "out of character" for her daughter.

"She loved being home," she said. “I’m just out of my mind right now."

Anyone with information on Kennedy’s whereabouts is asked to call the Sheriff’s office at (734) 971-8400
