Search continues for missing girl

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - West Virginia State Police are still searching for a missing 17-year-old Harpers Ferry, W.Va., girl who had been reported as a runaway on Aug. 19 by her parents.

Senior Trooper Jose Centeno said Monday he is mainly interested in finding Susan Capino.

"At this point, we're not looking for any suspects. We're looking for the missing child. The main focus of this investigation is to find the juvenile," Centeno said.

Her stepfather, Richard Lonas, said last week he believes he and the family have become the targets of the investigation by state police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation looking into her disappearance.

Centeno said any investigation into a possible crime against her is secondary to finding Capino.

"The first thing we need to do is find the child," Centeno said.

Centeno said the state police need the assistance of the public in finding her.

Anyone with information about her may call the Jefferson County barracks at 1-304-725-9779.
