ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Johnny and Jessica Marler have spent countless hours in the last week looking for their daughter, Camara, who vanished the day they were leaving to go on vacation.
“We’ve been up late at night trying to find any kind of information, digging through anything we could, just trying to get an idea where she might be or whether or not she’s safe,” Johnny Marler said.
They were planning to take a trip to Marianna last Thursday morning to stay for a few days and check out the Caverns State Park. However, what was supposed to be a joyful morning turned worrisome.
“We had started getting everything ready and my daughter’s alarm clock went off we initially thought it was my son and he was ignoring it, but when we went back there he came to us and said she wasn’t in her room,” Johnny said. “That’s when Jessica went to the bathroom to check and when we went to her bedroom the window was wide open.”
Her parents say she left out the window with the backpack she was planning to take on the trip.
Before she went missing, the Marlers say there weren’t any arguments, however, they did threaten to take her social media away from her after they said it was becoming unhealthy.
“She was staying glued to her phone, and we are one of those families who eat and watch TV together every night, and I think that has a lot to do with it,” they both said.
They believe she could be with someone she met online.
“We don’t have a lot of reason she could be in danger but we also don’t know for a fact either, everyone knows how this goes and people constantly putting things online and luring little girls into situations that’s what we think about, and keep us up at night.”
Camara’s parents are not mad at their daughter, but they are extremely worried and just want her to come home safely. They have left the door wide open for her return.
“We just want her to come home everything will be easier if she just comes home and everyone will stop looking for her,” her mother said.
Law enforcement said she was last seen wearing an ‘anime’ shirt, blue jeans and possibly a backpack.
If you have seen her or know of her whereabouts, you are asked to contact local law enforcement.
