Hayley McGonigle’s family and friends have taken to social media to ask for help after the 18-year-old teenager vanished without a trace. She was last seen by her family getting in a cab outside her home in Nitshill, Scotland around midnight on Saturday, the Mirror reports.
Hayley told her parents that she was going to a house party in Crookston right before she got in the cab. She hasn’t returned home since. None of her family and friends were able to reach her.
McGonigle’s family and friends took to Facebook to issue an online plea asking for any information that could help them trace her.
The police have already been alerted and are now conducting an intensive search for her.
Hayley’s aunt, Carolanne Crossey, posted a series of Facebook posts alerting everyone about her niece’s disappearance and also asking everyone to spread the word.
