COVINGTON, KY (WAVE) - Family and friends are intensifying their search for a 17-year-old girl from Covington who has been missing since late September.

Paige Johnson was last seen in Covington on Sept. 23.

A parent of one of Paige's friends is hoping a plea on Facebook will help. Lisa Little started the Facebook page a few days ago, and says she believes Paige did not leave willingly.

"I don't think that she ran away," Little said. "I don't that she's running from anything. I think that, well ... I really don't know what to think. I feel like we are looking for a needle in a haystack."

Covington police say they found dried blood in the home of the man last seen with Paige, but they haven't gotten test results on that blood back just yet.

That man is not officially a suspect.
