SCPD: Missing Teen Ailsa Papik Has Been Located

Suffolk Police confirm the Farmingville 15-year-old has been found unharmed.

Update: Patch has spoken to Christina Papik, who was awaiting her daughter's transfer and reunion. Papik stated that police informed her that Ailsa had been located in the Bronx at around 4:30 p.m. Thursday and that she was unharmed. Police did not provide details of much else.

"I kind of collapsed to the floor," Papik said, when she heard the confirmation from Suffolk Police. "I just want to thank everyone in the community who came out and for all the effort to get the word out."

Papik has asked for some private time to be with her daughter.


Suffolk County Police have confirmed that the Farmingville teen who went missing last Sunday has been found, unharmed.

Ailsa Papik was located earlier today by authorities. As of posting time, the girl has not yet been reunited with her family. Police have no further details to share at this time. Patch will have more on this story.

Papik, 15, went missing early Sunday morning after her mother said she left the house in a taxi cab. Yesterday the community held a candlelight vigil in front of KK Athletics in Farmingville.

I think its a private matter. We do not have to know everything. She's home and she is safe!

EVIE Thank God she's alive! There are sick predator's out there & I freaked that it could have been worst than her having an adventure. I have a teenage daughter & nieces who are always on facebook. My nieces are 15 & when I see them putting sexy pix of themselves online & see 100 "LIKES" from guys I freak out & make them take them off. These girls don't get it, there are sick people out there and I don't want it to be too late for these ignorant girls.

Evie thats the way to be five short minutes checking up on the kids and you could prevent something like this. I dont believe this was a predator situation here. This was more of a hook up thing. i am willing to bet the mother has not even punished her. there are a lot more issues here than her taking off. i hope child services keeps an eye on this family. i think we will hear more in the future. ITS TEN PM DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CHILDREN ARE!!!
Thankful to God that prayers have been answered. The mother has asked for privacy and though this was a scary situation in the public eye, there are some things that still need to remain private and within the family. Lesson to be learned I should hope, would be that parents as the caretakers of their children, know at all times where they are at and what they are doing until they graduate from High School. We live in crazy times with people doing crazy things and the world is just not the same anymore. Wishing the family peace and Blessings ~
