Patrick’s 15-year-old daughter, Sophie Reeder, was last seen on surveillance video the night of May 20, 2017, walking away from her Ft. Lauderdale, FL home. Patrick says she left home without his knowledge and has never been seen since.
“When I saw the X on her calendar, I figured there was some kind of plan. I didn’t know what it was,” Patrick says of the calendar in his daughter’s room. “I spent all weekend looking for Sophie, texting, and calling, and seeing if I could find her somewhere.”

Patrick says the next day, a family member searched Sophie’s laptop and discovered some information.
“She was on these online chatrooms for older men, looking for sugar daddies,” Patrick says.
