Madison Sparrow posterA Gold Alert is out for Madison Elizabeth Sparrow, a 17-year-old from Newark who is missing.

The Find Madison Sparrow Facebook group on Sunday afternoon conducted a search for her in fields near Farm Lane and Library Avenue, near the University of Delaware agricultural campus.

Kimberly Cowperthwait Turner, who said Madison was a former student, posted on Facbook a note from Madison’s mother: “Dairy Queen at 3 p.m. yesterday, then friend claimed she took Madison and dropped her off with a strange man at Wawa near Limestone Road. I received strange text as did some of her friends at 3:23 from her cell phone, and it’s been turned off since. Text sounds nothing like Madison Sparrow. Nothing is making sense right now.”

Madison is a white female, approximately 5-foot-4, 105 pounds, with long brown hair and wearing glasses. She was last seen wearing black tights, denim shorts, gray boots, a blue hoodie that says “New Jersey” and white ghost earrings.

 

 

 

Gold Alerts, according the state code, are issued for missing people with a disability, missing suicidal people and missing senior citizens.

Troop 2 of Delaware State Police asked for tips at 834-2620 or 911. A poster circulating online asked people to call Heather Murphy at 593-2714. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware crime stoppers at 800-TIP-3333 or Crime Stoppers.
