ANTIGO (WAOW) -- Authorities say Christina Whaley was last seen Monday afternoon walking away from Antigo High School. Friday the Antigo Police Department put out an alert on the missing teen.
"At this point we don't know where she is, so there's always a danger involved with any missing child until they're found," said Daniel Duley, detective sergeant of the Antigo Police Department.
Whaley is sixteen years old, 5 foot 9 inches and weighs 140 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes and she was last seen wearing jeans and white zip up with gray lining.
Police say she lives in Antigo with her relatives.
Monday night, after not hearing from her after school, her aunt called police.
Authorities tell us the last time anyone heard from her, was Wednesday when she called her grandfather.
She didn't not tell him her whereabouts only that she was "okay."
Whaley's mother lives in Minnesota and authorities say she mentioned often how she wanted to go live with her.
But police say her mother hasn't heard from her.
"She's as interested as anyone else at finding where Christina's at and locating her so that we know she's safe and that nothing's happened to her," Duley added.
Investigators say they are communicating with authorities near her mother, but so far they have no leads.
"I've had several telephone conversations with her and her local law enforcement where she lives has been in contact with her ."
Antigo Police also continue their search for Kayla Berg, an Antigo teen who went missing over a year ago.
But at this point, they do not see a connection.
"As of now there is not a direct link but it's always a possibility. It's something we are keeping in mind and are looking into."
