According to a press release from the Boulder Police Department, Chloe is believed to be a runaway and her case does not, "meet the criteria for the issuance of an Amber Alert."
Potentially Dangerous Scenario for Chloe Campbell
Chloe's parents do not believe that their daughter ran away and are fearful that she may be involved in a trafficking scenario and unable to come home.
On October 7, 2022, Chloe's mother posted the following message on Facebook:
Because Chloe’s case was initially designated as ‘runaway’ and not “missing”, law enforcement and school authorities have downplayed the critical nature of the case, which has caused much angst. We are working collaboratively with the authorities to get the case the proper designation and we have retained a private investigator in the interim to continue investigating leads.
