Cassie Compton TikTok video being probed over fears footage of bruised girl with black eyes is missing teen
A TIKTOK video is being probed by the FBI over fears that the footage shows a girl who went missing at age 15.
Cassie Compton has not been seen since she left her home in Stuttgart, Arkansas, seven years ago.
She went to a demolition derby in Dewitt with a family friend and returned home just before 7pm before she vanished.
She told her mother she was going to the store before she left on September 14, 2004.
She was said to be about 5'3", weighed around 100 pounds, has blue eyes, and had blonde hair at the time of her disappearance.
A TikTok video recently surfaced that shows a young woman with features that highly resemble Cassie's, leaving viewers speculating that she may still be alive.
The video shows a girl sitting in the backseat of a car with two men.
The girl appears to have bruised eyes as she stares into the camera while the men speak to each other.
The Stuttgart Police Department released a statement regarding the video.
"We appreciate all the tips and information about Cassie Compton. We have the video from TikTok and have the seen the Facebook posts," they said.
"We are working diligently with the Arkansas State Police and FBI right now. Since this still an open investigation we can’t release any further information right now."
Tina Storz, a private investigator who has been searching for Cassie for years, said that the girl strongly resembles Compton but could not confirm it's her according to KATV.
The FBI's Little Rock field office said in a statement that it's aware of the video.
"We are following up on the video and taking all investigative steps, but we cannot say anything further at this time," the agency said.
