Authorities in Norfolk, Virginia, are looking for Anjelica Hadsell. The 18-year-old teen hasn’t been seen since Tuesday morning, but wasn’t reported missing until later in the evening — at around 9:15 p.m.
Over the course of the past three days that the girl has been missing, there have been very few details to offer any theories on what may have happened to her. ABC 13 News reports that there has been at least one unconfirmed sighting of the missing woman, but police can’t track down any evidence to prove whether or not the sighting was legitimate.
Foul play isn’t yet a factor in the disappearance of Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell. Nonetheless, nobody knows if she’s missing voluntarily or not. That’s why police officials in Norfolk are doing their best to locate her or any evidence in her case. An update by ABC News 13 on Friday afternoon reveals that loved ones have been out searching for Anjelica alongside police officials.

Anjelica Hadsell may have been spotted around the campus of the Virginia Commonwealth University, but investigators still haven’t been able to confirm this sighting. The last known contact anyone has had with Anjelica — called “AJ” by her loved ones — was a text message she apparently sent her mother at around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday. In other words, she wasn’t necessarily seen at this time, so it’s not known when she was physically seen last. Her mother now questions the validity of the text message she received. Jennifer Hadsell says that something was off during her last text conversation with her daughter.
“The conversation, in my opinion, was kind of off. I can’t be 100 percent sure I know that was my daughter I was texting. I know how she talks and I know the type of things she says.”
Meanwhile, campus police at VCU are sharing flyers of the missing woman in hopes of getting her face out there among the faculty and other students of the university. Maybe if someone recognizes her they’ll be able to offer some kind of information that may be useful in locating her.
What happened to Anjelica Hadsell? It should be noted that currently there are more than 100 women missing in the state of Virginia whose cases remain unsolved. Among those 100-plus cases are some high profile disappearances, such as Heather Hodges, who vanished back in 2012 without a trace.
