missing 16-year-old girl

Whitney Lulloff. 

Officials are searching after a 16-year-old girl from Colorado seemingly vanished while flying from Phoenix to Denver on Monday.

After traveling to Arizona alone to visit her father, Whitney Lulloff’s flight home left Phoenix at 10:30 a.m. and landed in Denver at 12:30 p.m.

However, her dad Kris Lulloff said she never texted him to let him know she landed.

“She always texts me when she lands,” Kris Lulloff told Fox 21 News. “Her flight landed in Denver, and we didn’t hear from her. No texts, nothing.”

Kris Lulloff said the Phoenix Police Department confirmed that Whitney got on the plane in Phoenix.

Whitney’s stepfather was waiting at Denver International Airport to pick her up, but she never came out or contacted him.

Whitney is about 5-foot-7, 140 pounds with an athletic build, straight blonde hair and green eyes. She was last seen wearing ripped black jeans, black high top shoes and a light grey sweater.

The Denver Police Department said investigators do not yet have reason to believe foul play was involved in Whitney's disappearance. 

Officials are asking for witnesses who were on American Airlines flight 2511 with Whitney. Particularly, officials want to know if she was seen talking to or meeting anyone during or after the flight.

Kris Lulloff, a former law enforcement officer, told Fox 21 News that time is of the essence to find his daughter.

“I’m pleading for some sort of hope to know Whitney is OK,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can be anonymous and are eligible for a $2,000 award.

Contact ALL of the news stations. Put pressure on DIA and the DPD. There is no way someone can walk through DIA without being filmed all the way through.

Every article I read on this confirm she got on the plane in Arizona, but act like she vanished like she never got off the plane. Or, think she did and she's in Denver. I can say with 100% certainty DIA has cameras inside the airport. Why aren't we hearing more details about that? Everyone acting like they don't and it's a total mystery where she went when that plane deboarded.


This is my friend's stepdaughter. His Facebook post indicates that DIA was not very helpful with providing video:

"On Monday Jan 4th our daughter went missing from DIA. She is only 16, and never met us to be picked up. Although we started asking for security footage at 2PM on Monday to see where she went, DIA refused to get ANY security footage to Denver PD for three days.

Let me repeat this: a minor child in great danger went missing on DIA property and they didn’t cooperate for 3 days.

Now it has been 5 days and there is solid evidence of who might have been involved in her disappearance at DIA.

We have once again asked for security footage for those times and locations and have heard nothing from DIA.

Our daughter is gone. She is in real danger. Evidence does NOT classify this as a runaway. 5 days of public, volunteer and police resources have been wasted because we can’t get the basic information from DIA Security.

We are at a loss for how DIA could be so slow, incompetent and unhelpful

Please contact Detective Brinkers with Denver PD at 720-944-3813 if you have any information or can help in any way"
