GREENFIELD — Greenfield and Springfield police are looking for a Greenfield Middle School student missing since Friday.
Nancy Pizzaro, 14, was last seen leaving the middle school at the end of the day with her non-custodial mother, Melissa Carrasquillo, of 343 Hancock St., Springfield, according to police.
Carrasquillo was located Monday and said she hadn’t seen Pizzaro since a short meeting after school, according to a release from the Greenfield Police Department.
Greenfield Police Lt. William Gordon said Pizzaro’s custodial grandparents reported her missing and police think she is not in danger but are erring on the side of caution.
“We think we know where she is, and we don’t think that she is in any danger, however that is just probably. With any type of missing person you never know until you find them, so we’re treating it as seriously as any other missing person would be treated,” Gordon said.
Gordon said it is thought this is an isolated incident and that no one else is in danger.
Anyone who knows Pizarro’s whereabouts is asked to call their local police department or call 911. The Greenfield police nonemergency line is 413-773-5411, ext. 2.
