Sophie Reeder left her father’s home in the middle of the night on May 20, 2017, and has not been seen since. A search of her computer revealed the 15-year-old had been in chatrooms with older men and on sugar daddy websites.
“Before Sophie went missing, there were some issues that could be warning signs,” says Sophie’s father, Patrick. “She got arrested shoplifting some alcohol.”

Patrick also says two months before his daughter disappeared, he told her he was going to send her to boarding school, and she got mad. “As a parent, I was looking for solutions, but in hindsight, what I think happened was I pushed her away even further,” he says.
In the video above, hear about an altercation the teen had that landed her in the hospital. And, Dr. Phil offers some insight.
