Deborah Joy-Loay Trout, 16, was last seen by family members on Tuesday, May 30, according to police. Trout attended school at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School on Tuesday, returned home after school and has not been seen or heard from since, police said.

Trout was described by law enforcement as an Asian female, 5’ 2”, 120 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. Though initial reports were that she was last seen wearing a black-and-white striped shirt, dark colored sweatpants and black sneakers, a family member said she was wearing different clothes -- a black zippered hoodie with a light blue band in the middle and "PINK" on the front, and pure white high-top leather sneakers -- when she left her home.

Trout has friends in the City of Schenectady and is believed to be in the Schenectady area, police said.

Kathleen Shumpert, registrar for the Clifton Park Youth Hockey Association, said volunteers have been putting up missing posters with Trout's image on them, in hopes of finding her.

“There has been no sign of her since Tuesday. She has not checked her social media accounts, and of course, we are all very worried,” Shumpert said in an email.

Anyone with information on Trout’s whereabouts was asked to contact the Bethlehem Police Department at (518) 439-9973.
