Update: Woodstock police: Missing teen found safe Wednesday

This story has been updated: Woodstock police have found the teenager reported missing Tuesday.

A Woodstock mother is seeking the public’s help in locating her 15-year-old daughter, who went missing Monday night.

Melissa Haske said she last saw her daughter, Hannah Stakes, 9 p.m. Monday at her home on Carol Avenue in Woodstock but later found out she was talking with a friend until 10:15 p.m. Monday. When Haske went upstairs to wake her daughter at
6 a.m. Tuesday, she found out she was gone.

Stakes is described as 5-foot-4 and
110 pounds with blonde hair and hazel eyes. She last was seen wearing a black jacket and black shoes and carrying a gray backpack. Haske said she took a skateboard with her.

Haske said her daughter is in danger because of recent mental health problems. Stakes had threatened suicide several times and was going to go to an outpatient mental health program Tuesday, the same day she was discovered missing, Haske said.

Haske said she and her sister have canvassed the majority of locations in Woodstock they believe Stakes could have gone. Flyers also have been put up around Woodstock Square and Woodstock police have been searching areas based on various contacts, Haske said.

On Tuesday night, Haske said that police were using dogs to try and locate her scent. Police officials couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday night.

Haske wrote on her flyers that anyone with information on Stakes’ disappearance should call the Woodstock Police Department at 815-338-2131.
