New York State Police, in conjunction with New York State Governor Kathy Hochul, will be holding a media availability at 1:30 p.m. at the Moreau State Park Office at 605 Old Saratoga Road, Ganesvoort, NY, 12831 to provide an update on the search for missing 9-year-old Charlotte Sena.

On the evening of September 30, 2023 Charlotte was entered as a missing child through the Department of Criminal Justice Services. The extensive search for her has continued overnight and into the daytime hours. Out of an abundance of caution and due to the length of time that has lapsed an Amber Alert has been issued. No press conference is currently scheduled as all resources are directed at finding the missing child. Any information or time/location for any future media availability will be posted to the newsroom.
