BROOKLYN, OH (WOIO) - Alexis Marie Boroviak vanished Nov. 8, after taking out the family dog. It's been days since she was last seen and her family is worried and scared.
On Saturday, two groups covered ground looking for the missing 15-year-old girl in Elyria and in Cleveland, near Searsdale Avenue and State Road.
Alexis' grandmother, Renee Wymer, is breaking down.
"I want you to come home, Lexi. I need you," said Wymer.
Brit Ramsey, who's been searching with Alexis' extended family, says the teen was last seen in the backyard, which opens to an alley and then the main road that leads anywhere.
"About 10 minutes later, the other daughter came in and brought the dog in and asked, 'Where is Lexi?' We said, 'She was outside.' And she said, 'No, she's not,'" recalled Ramsey.
Alexis is now a sophomore at Brooklyn High School, after moving from Parma.
Her father, Russell, speaks publicly for the first time since she vanished.
"You don't know how big a city it is until something like this happens," said Russell Boroviak.
Both sides of the family say Alexis has no reason to disappear on her own.
"I think somebody took her, the longer the days go on," said Wymer.
Alexis stands 5'3" tall and weighs 156 pounds. She was last seen wearing lavender pajama pants, a black, hooded sweatshirt, grey Nike shoes and glasses. She may walk with a limp from a past knee injury.
