BRIDGEPORT -

The family members of a missing Bridgeport teenager say they fear for her safety.

Police say Stephanie Casiano walked out of Harding High School around 8:30 a.m. Friday with a teenage boy.

Her friends say she told them she was going to a convenience shop nearby and never came back.

The 16-year-old was supposed to go on a field trip that day.

"The day before she was fine, we were watching TV, everything was good,” says her sister, Arielys Casiano.

Her family says she has never run away before.

Casiano was last seen wearing a pink shirt, pink pants and black boots. She is 5-feet, 2-inches, 160 lbs and has dyed, dark blue hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call Bridgeport police at (203) 581-5293.
